The industrial market is poised for an era of unprecedented innovation. Recent advances in connectivity, virtualization, and multi-core processors have opened the door to new opportunities, but they also introduce a new level of complexity. If you manufacture a device for the control and process automation, energy, or transportation markets, you need to keep your focus on innovation.
Are your engineers ready for this new level of complexity? Multi-core processors can consolidate hardware, cut costs, and reduce time-to-market, but is your team prepared to exploit those advantages? Are they educated on the choices among asymmetrical multiprocessing (AMP), symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP), and embedded virtualization technologies? How much of your existing code and development processes can be leveraged? Do your engineers have the background to develop connected embedded devices while making appropriate trade-offs among security, performance, and scalability?
Your team can benefit from Wind River® Education Services if you are looking to reduce your time-to-market and avoid lengthy trial-and-error cycles. Our professionally designed courses provide in-depth, hands-on guidance for the challenges faced by designers of embedded industrial devices. With mentoring from our experienced engineering specialists, your engineers can immediately apply their knowledge within your processes, systems, and environment.
With the benefits of multi-core come new challenges for both hardware and, more importantly, software development. Find out more about our industrial-specific offerings:
