Wind River Uses Embedded Multi-core to Drive Benefits
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
There are many benefits to an embedded multi-core and virtualization. One industry leader, Wind River (News - Alert), provides the applications and services to give users the ability to grow. The embedded multi-core channel by Wind River gives users the appropriate information for hardware and software solutions. This affordable and quality product ensures that a computer and server will run effectively while conserving power.
Devices are getting more and more complex, and vendors have to deal with that complexity and create independent solutions to deal with those issues. This is where embedded multi-core comes in to play by handling more than one process.
Wind River is an effective solution for embedded virtualization and embedded multi-core. Virtualization is drawing more and more attention in the IT and enterprise world. It has developed a reputation for its ease of use and simplistic implementation. An embedded multi-core central processing unit is as pervasive as the virtualization.
Yet these same embedded multi-core CPUs and virtualization concepts are dividing device manufacturers despite presenting real benefits and values in the IT industry. Embedded virtualization gives developers and even manufacturers the ability to maintain certain levels throughout the device control aspect for those particular embedded products.
This is done while the products are adding flexibility with features and limiting the complexity of embedded multi-core development.
Wind River customers are beginning to understand the significance of embedded multi-core CPUs and embedded virtualization, recognizing the three main benefits: consolidation, performance, separation and migration to new platforms.
By consolidating contrasting functionality to conventional hardware, users can decrease the number, weight, size and power of application-specific tools. Increasing the speed and process of a system enhances the performance as it downplays the necessary power constraints. To heighten safety and security, separation plays a key role.
While new functionality takes place, the migration to a new platform can offer a helping hand by leveraging the legacy applications and stacks. Users can reap the benefits of embedded multi-core and virtualization and still be able to demand real-time requirements of design. This will not compromise the entire on-board device-level control.
Positioned as the world-wide leader in embedded multi-core development portfolios and embedded virtualization, Wind River is able to provide its customers with solutions that satisfy the need for advanced embedded multi-core and virtualization.
