Virtualization for Embedded Systems

Burgeoning trends like autonomous automobiles, the Internet of Things (IoT), and increasingly sophisticated industrial and manufacturing devices, machines, and systems are forcing change in the world of embedded systems. The old, purpose-built, closed legacy architectures are giving way to a fluid, software-defined, and connected approach. Virtualization has been a common practice in enterprise IT for years. Now, it is evolving to become a natural solution for embedded systems.

Wind River® Helix™ Virtualization Platform is designed specifically to enable this evolution, offering a single platform that will run essentially any embedded system, old or new. Helix Platform addresses the demanding security, safety, reliability, and certification requirements of modern embedded systems and critical infrastructure. In the process, it helps bridge the past with the future and enables innovation and IP reuse. Furthermore, the platform helps reduce both capital and operating expenses.
