Wind River VxWorks diventa il primo sistema operativo a raggiungere la conformazione certificata a POSIX PSE52, lo standard di controllo per Realtime

Certificazione per l’offerta di nuove soluzioni standard per il settore aerospaziale e difesa.

Torino — 14 dicembre 2006 - Wind River Systems Inc, il leader globale nel settore della Device Software Optimization, annuncia che Wind River Vxworks 6.4 è il primo sistema operativo ad aver ottenuto la certificazione di conformità allo standard di controllo Realtime europeo POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller 1003.13™. Wind River è la prima azienda di device software ad essere certificata e ad aver raggiunto questo obiettivo.

“Le aziende scelgono Wind River per le soluzioni certificate e basate su standard che offriamo”, ha dichiarato John Bruggeman, Chief Marketing Officer di Wind River. “Questa certificazione conferma l’impegno di Wind River a supportare gli standard aperti. Siamo stati i primi a ottenere la certificazione POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller 1003.13™-2003, un risultato importante per Wind River, ma più ancora per i nostri clienti nel settore aerospaziale e difesa, per i quali lo standard POSIX 1003.13-2003 è un requisito particolarmente critico”.

A seguire, il comunicato in inglese.


ALAMEDA, Calif. — Wind River Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIND), the global leader in Device Software Optimization (DSO), today announced that Wind River's VxWorks 6.4 real-time operating system (RTOS) is the first operating system to achieve certification for conformance to the PSE52 Real-Time Controller 1003.13™-2003 Product Standard within the POSIX®: Certified by IEEE and The Open Group certification program. Wind River is the first device software company to achieve this certification.

"Companies choose Wind River because we offer commercial-grade solutions backed by certifications to standards that are relevant and useful for our customers," said John Bruggeman, chief marketing officer at Wind River. "This certification validates Wind River's continued support of open standards. Being the first to achieve POSIX PSE52 Real-Time Controller 1003.13™-2003 certification is a significant milestone for Wind River, but even more so for our aerospace and defense customers, where conformance to the POSIX 1003.13-2003 standard is generally more critical."

Wind River's commercial-grade technology enables aerospace and defense, network equipment and automotive device manufacturers to rapidly, efficiently and economically develop highly deterministic, standards-conformant applications certified for stringent levels of safety and security. POSIX, a family of standards developed by the Portable Applications Standards Committee (PASC) of the IEEE Computer Society, enables access to integrated information within and between enterprises based on open standards and global interoperability. Typically, greater levels of POSIX support enable code reuse and portability of third-party, open-source applications to VxWorks and from VxWorks.

"We congratulate Wind River on being the first to achieve the PSE52 1003.13 Real-Time Controller certification for VxWorks 6.4," said Andrew Josey, director of certification for The Open Group. "Achieving this certification is a significant achievement and clearly demonstrates Wind River’s commitment to open standards in its Device Software Optimization platform solutions."
