Wind River General Purpose Platform 6.9 Live DVD Evaluation
This live DVD evaluation of Wind River General Purpose Platform 6.9 is an ISO image that you can download and burn to DVD and run on your host system without permanently installing any software.
This evaluation allows you to try out General Purpose Platform in three VxWorks configurations using the VxWorks Simulator: single-processing mode, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) mode, and asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) mode. Each VxWorks configuration is described in a tutorial to provide a guided experience enabling you to get the most out of this evaluation.
Wind River General Purpose Platform provides a solid foundation for a broad variety of devices, from aerospace and defense applications to networking and consumer electronics gear, robotics and industrial applications, precision medical instruments, and automobile navigation and telematics systems. The platform is ideally suited for devices requiring a highly scalable, hard real-time, deterministic run-time environment.
General Purpose Platform is built on the industry-leading real-time operating system (RTOS), VxWorks 6.9, and includes integrated networking and run-time technologies. The latest edition of VxWorks is backward-compatible with earlier versions, allowing customers to leverage existing and legacy software assets. This evaluation also includes VxWorks Simulator (which allows use of the platform without having to connect to a target device), Wind River Compiler, and Wind River GCC Compiler.
VxWorks 6.9 offers support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and for asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) as part of the VxWorks platforms. VxWorks SMP allows the operating system to use multiple processors in a single system. At the same time, the add-on maintains the same key real-time operating system (RTOS) characteristics of performance, small footprint, high reliability, and determinism as does the uniprocessor configuration of VxWorks.
VxWorks 6.9 AMP allows independent instances of the VxWorks operating system to run on the individual CPUs of a multi-core processor. This evaluation includes single-processing, SMP, and AMP configurations.
Wind River Workbench
This evaluation version of General Purpose Platform includes Wind River Workbench 3.3, our integrated Eclipse-based development suite. Workbench offers broad capabilities that support the entire development life cycle, from hardware bring-up to platform and application development, enabling standardization on one common environment across the enterprise.
