VXWORKS The Secure, Safe, Reliable, and Certifiable RTOS for Critical Infrastructure and Embedded Systems Product Overview For more than 30 years, the VxWorks ® real-time operating system (RTOS) has been chosen by global industry leaders as the trusted foundation to power billions of safety-critical intelligent devices, machines, and systems. From literally out-of-this-world projects such as the InSight Mars lander, now operating on the Red Planet, to medical infusion pumps and imaging systems, manufacturing robots, and other embedded devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), VxWorks is repeatedly selected as the RTOS for innovative solutions that deliver secure, safe, and reliable applications across a wide array of industries, including aerospace, automotive, defense, industrial, medical, and transportation. ENABLING THE FUTURE OF EDGE COMPUTING SYSTEMS VxWorks is a deterministic, high-performance RTOS that sets the standard for a scalable, future- proof, secure, safe, and reliable operating environment for mission-critical devices and systems that must meet the highest standards. • Real time: VxWorks is ideal for hard real-time embedded applications because it is a deterministic, priority-based, preemptive RTOS with low latency and minimal jitter. In addition to standard preemption, VxWorks can ensure that safety- and time-critical applications get a predetermined number of CPU cycles through various forms of scheduling as well as time and space partitioning. It also provides flexible features needed for various industries. WHEN IT MATTERS, IT RUNS ON WIND RIVER Figure 1.
