Wind River Hypervisor brings a new level of
flexibility to the development of embedded devices

Wind River Hypervisor Product Overview

Download the product overviewVirtualization for embedded systems is a significant industry trend that opens up new opportunities for companies building next-generation single and multicore devices. Device makers can utilize Wind River Hypervisor to consolidate their systems by replacing multiple boards or CPUs with a single board and/or a single CPU. They can use multiple operating systems (such as an RTOS and a general purpose OS) cooperatively to provide innovative device functionality and adopt multicore processors with improved scalability and reliability. The effective adoption and optimization of virtualization and multicore will be key differentiating factors in the competitive marketplace for next-generation devices.
