Wind River announced support for Intel Atom x6000 Series and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J Series processors and 11th Gen Intel Core processors and Intel Celeron processors. This development is part of a multi-year effort to optimize Wind River software for Intel industrial system-on-a-chip offerings (SoCs).
The industry-leading VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS), a part of Wind River Studio, is the most widely deployed commercial RTOS to support the IoT-optimized Intel processors for industrial platforms that demand greater AI and real-time computing for mission-critical applications, such as functional safety and related continuous certification needs. VxWorks makes the most of the edge IP capabilities embedded in the Intel Industrial SoCs, these capabilities include Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC), Time-Sensitive Networking, and Functional Safety.
In a major shift for industrial manufacturing companies, more AI-infused and automated decision-making computing is moving to the far edge of the cloud. Recent research shows 66% of industrial leaders believe their embedded products/solutions need to be capable of computing in near-latency-free real-time for mission-critical success.1
The Intel Atom x6000 Series and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J Series processors (Elkhart Lake) deliver value to IoT developers, architects, and engineers with a platform that’s enhanced for IoT and includes integrated resources for remote management, functional safety, TSN network synchronization, and real-time computing. The 11th Gen Intel Core processors (Tiger Lake) feature high-performance CPU/GPU compute with integrated AI acceleration, plus real-time capabilities for critical applications that demand high-speed processing, computer vision, and low-latency deterministic computing.
Regardless of industry or device type, companies building intelligent systems rely on Wind River RTOS capabilities to deliver the highest levels of security, safety, high performance, and reliability. VxWorks is a part of Wind River Studio, a cloud-native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems from devices to the cloud.
