ALAMEDA, CA. Wind River released the Wind River Helix™ Virtualization Platform (Helix Platform), combining the company’s commercial real-time operating system (RTOS) with embedded Linux distribution into an edge compute software platform, enabling other operating systems to run unaffected within the same framework.
The Helix Platform assists a gamut of critical infrastructure development needs including highly-dynamic environments sans certification requirements, to highly-regulated static applications such as in avionics and industrial, in addition to systems involving the combination of safety-certified applications with non-certified, such as in automotive.
“The industry is moving in a direction of heterogeneous systems where the development of many critical infrastructure systems requires both an open source Linux and a proven commercial RTOS, and Helix Platform offers the best of both worlds with VxWorks and Wind River Linux integrated in a single solution, from a single supplier,” said Jim Douglas, president and CEO of Wind River. “Drawing from our rich proven technology heritage and unmatched safety expertise, Helix Platform is a critical building block for how we will continue to accelerate the evolution from automated devices towards more intelligent and autonomous systems.”
