Wind River brings VxWorks safety portfolio to cutting-edge NXP platforms

Wind River, a specialist in delivering IoT software to critical infrastructure, has announced expanded VxWorks real-time operating system support for NXP platforms, including NXP i.MX 8 and NXP QorIQ T2080 and T2081 multi-core platforms.

This comes in addition to NXP’s already supported Layerscape family, including the LS1021A, LS1043A, and LS1046A. With these updates, Wind River continues to demonstrate its commitment to enabling the affordable development of safe and secure systems on the latest Arm and Power Architecture processors from NXP.

Proven in the most challenging safety- and security-critical applications, the following commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms from Wind River make it easier and more cost-effective for technology suppliers to meet the stringent safety certification requirements of RTCA DO-178C, EUROCAE ED-12C, EN 50128, and IEC 61508.

  • VxWorks 653 Multi-core Edition, an integrated modular avionics (IMA) platform enabling workload consolidation of safety-critical and less-critical applications sharing a common computer platform, has been validated and provides COTS certification artifacts for the QorIQ T2080 from NXP.

  • VxWorks Cert Edition, a platform for safety-critical applications that require RTCA DO-178, EUROCAE ED-12, or IEC 61508 certification evidence in the avionics, transportation, industrial automation, and medical device industries, has been validated on the i.MX 6 SABRE Lite from NXP.

  • VxWorks, the RTOS that delivers the safety, security, and scalability capabilities required for building intelligent connected systems, is now available on the latest NXP i.MX 8 platform, the QorIQ T2081 multi-core platform, and the LS1 and LS2 products including LS1043 and LS1046.

“Avionics, transportation, industrial automation, and medical industries require proven and safety-certified solutions,” said Noy Kucuk, vice president of Product Management, NXP Semiconductor. “We are pleased to support Wind River’s VxWorks COTS safety platforms with our Arm and Power Architecture processors. We also recognize that customers require an ongoing supply of our processors; NXP, therefore, has extended the production life of select QorIQ P Series and T Series processors.”

“By working together with NXP, we can provide our mutual customers with proven and reliable choices for their technology implementations, as well as support them in their software-certification process,” said Michel Genard, vice president of Operating Environments, Wind River. “VxWorks continues to serve as the foundation that enables companies across critical infrastructure sectors to create differentiated, certifiable safety-critical systems, and Wind River is investing in and committed to providing the architectural flexibility needed by these new and innovative designs.”
