vital components for the productization and commercialization of any IoT device. Within a Helix Platform workload consolidation solution, a Wind River Linux VM can be established to run Linux applications. Wind River Development Tools To create a workload consolidation solution for your specific manufacturing components and needs, Wind River provides powerful and time-saving development tools. Wind River Simics ® is a simulation platform that can simulate any compute mode, chip to system. Along with its capabilities for scripting, debugging, inspection, and fault injection, Simics enables you to define, develop, and integrate your systems without the constraints of physical target hardware. It provides the access, automation, and collaboration tools required for agile development practices. Wind River Diab Compiler helps boost application performance; reduce memory footprint; and produce high-quality, standards-compliant object code for embedded systems. Diab Compiler is also ISO 26262–certified as a software tool for safety-related development. THE RESULT Using the Helix Platform and its hypervisor together with VxWorks, Wind River Linux, and Wind River development tools, an ECU consolidation solution can be applied in the automotive industry. Development, testing, and security teams can take a closer look at the underlying technology of this new approach—and at the possibilities for improving the efficiency of new automobiles, the safety and security of future automobiles, the satisfaction and brand loyalty of consumers, and the bottom-line profitability of the business. A typical system configuration, as an example, is shown below: To learn more about Helix Platform, VxWorks, or Wind River Linux, visit, or contact Wind River is a global leader in delivering software for IoT. Its technology is found in more than 2 billion devices and is backed by world-class professional services and customer support. Wind River is accelerating digital transformation of critical infrastructure systems that demand the highest levels of safety, security, performance, and reliability. © 2019 Wind River Systems, Inc.
