Wind River

In an increasingly software-defined world, Wind River is pioneering edge infrastructure technologies to drive digital transformation and accelerate the evolution from automated devices to autonomous systems. Wind River software runs the computing systems of the most important critical infrastructure that demand the highest standards for safety, security, performance, and reliability, including aircraft, rail, automobiles, medical devices, manufacturing plants, and communications networks. Found in more than 2 billion devices, Wind River products are used by the world’s leading manufacturers, system integrators, enterprises, and governments.

At Arm, we work closely with Wind River to assure that Wind River operating systems, tools, and simulation offerings are optimized for use by Arm licensees. This cooperation provides great customer experiences using Wind River software on Arm-powered devices. Multiple silicon providers facilitate the enablement of the latest Wind River products such as VxWorks® for use in Arm-based safety-certifiable systems. With Arm and Wind River, software developers and architects can utilize the full potential of Arm-based SoC devices.

With one of the broadest portfolios of Arm processor-based solutions for developers to choose from, Wind River’s embedded operating systems are designed to support Arm multi-core processor architectures and symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) with real-time optimizations.

"As the complexity of advanced systems in safety critical domains such as automotive or avionics continues to increase, it will be essential for software and hardware to work together seamlessly. By working together with Arm to deliver pre-validated, deployment-ready solutions and drawing from Wind River’s proven portfolio of safe and secure software delivering high reliability and availability, we can help our shared customers accelerate their time-to-market and successfully meet their goals to deliver innovation."

Embedded solution development is significantly more complex today than it once was. Wind River is uniquely qualified to help customers master these challenges. Its solutions support a variety of architectures and are backed by world-class professional services and customer support, hardware integration expertise, and a thriving partner ecosystem. Wind River  products  are  used  across  all  major  critical  infrastructure  sectors  by  the  world’s  leading manufacturers,  system  integrators,  enterprises, and governments.

The Wind River Chassis portfolio of automotive software leverages Wind River’s proven history of delivering software for devices subject to the highest standards of safety, security, and performance. With Chassis, Wind River is proud to introduce VxWorks® (ISO 26262–certified by TÜV) and Wind River Linux, Wind River Helix™ Virtualization Platform, and Wind River Drive along with complimentary tools and services.

VxWorks® is the market leading RTOS which has a rich pedigree of single and multi-core development and has been proven in more than 2 billion devices worldwide. The RTOS is trusted by over 9,000 companies and has been chosen to go to Mars with NASA for nearly 25 years, including in the 2018 InSight robotic lander. VxWorks is ISO 26262 certified to ASIL-D by TÜV.

Wind River Linux is the leading commercial open source software platform for building embedded devices of all kinds. Wind River’s platform and services can help developers speed build cycles by more than 30 percent, while reducing production and maintenance costs by as much as 60 percent.

Wind River Helix™ Virtualization Platform is an edge compute software foundation that runs multiple operating systems and consolidates mixed-criticality automotive applications in a single platform, addressing the challenges you face modernizing legacy systems and innovating for the future.

Wind River Drive is an Adaptive AUTOSAR-oriented software services stack to support abstraction of key software applications and algorithms from hardware architectural dependencies.

Wind River Edge Sync is a robust over-the-air (OTA) update and software lifecycle management solution for remotely maintaining the integrity of embedded systems while collecting critical data across the entire lifecycle of the vehicle, both pre-production and post-production.

Wind River Workbench and Wind River Diab Compiler are best-in-class tools that can help streamline design, production, and maintenance tasks while helping boost quality.

Connected and intelligent vehicles hold great promise, but the increasing complexities of developing, integrating, and managing numerous software systems are limiting innovation and profitability for auto manufacturers. Wind River brings together software, technologies, tools, and services to help manufacturers unify, simplify, and maintain software systems of next-generation connected and autonomous cars.
