Wind River, a developer of software for the intelligent edge, announced RISC-V open architecture support for its VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). VxWorks is the most widely deployed commercial RTOS to have support for the RISC-V open hardware instruction set architecture (ISA).
The company has also joined the RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit consortium chartered to standardize, protect, and promote RISC-V ISA together with its hardware and software ecosystem for use in all computing devices.
Adding RISC-V support for VxWorks follows a number of developments made to the RTOS, that include support for C++17, Boost, Python, and the Rust collection of technologies.
“We are pleased to welcome Wind River into the RISC-V Foundation and our global ecosystem," said CEO of the RISC-V Foundation Calista Redmond. “VxWorks significantly extends the reach of RISC-V in the embedded developer space. We look forward to continued software developments by Wind River and the RISC-V community.”
Wind River will be showcasing VxWorks on the SiFive RISC-V HiFive Unleashed board at the RISC-V Summit in San Jose Dec. 10-12.
