For embedded system manufacturers looking to introduce Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities to new or existing devices, VxWorks 7 delivers the right combination of scalability, safety and security, and virtualization capabilities to meet next-generation requirements. Scalability The VxWorks modular, future-proof architecture enables faster bug fixes and new feature additions without retesting or recertification of the entire system. A combination of the VxWorks microkernel (just 20 KB) and the standard kernel provides one common real-time operating system (RTOS) foundation for different classes of devices, helping reduce development and maintenance costs. Safety and Security VxWorks supports the space, time, and resource partitioning required for IEC 62304, IEC 61508, IEC 50128, DO-178B, DO-178C, and ARINC 653 certification. VxWorks customers can design their systems to the required level of security by picking from a comprehensive set of VxWorks security features.
