Wind River Platform for Medical Devices is comprised of technology solutions designed to meet the unique needs of medical device manufacturers. Built on Wind River's VxWorks, which is approval-ready for medical devices up to Class III, the platform alleviates developer challenges with ready-to-use security, safety, and scalability functionality. Platform customers receive a compliance package with the documentation necessary for companies to get medical approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Flexible VxWorks RTOS
Built on a highly scalable, deterministic, hard real-time kernel, VxWorks enables companies to scale and optimize their run-time environments using only the specific technologies required by their devices. From the smallest footprint requirement to the highest performance level, VxWorks gives developers the flexibility to build their optimal medical solution quickly and easily while meeting cost, quality, and functionality requirements.
