Consolidate Hardware with Embedded Virtualization

Many embedded systems consist of multiple independent processors—for example, a real-time controller and operator display, or a control processor and data path processor. These systems often use multiple discrete processors, adding to the bill-of-materials costs, power consumption, footprint, and maintenance cost of the total solution.

With embedded virtualization, multiprocessor systems can be combined onto a single piece of silicon to save costs, reduce packaging, and lower power consumption while retaining the necessary functional separation of the components.

Migration to multi-core CPUs enables the performance of the total solution to be greatly increased. The challenge is how to configure your multi-core CPU to support your business. Wind River® embedded virtualization provides the broadest range of solutions for multi-core development.

What's Our Embedded Virtualization Solution?

Embedded virtualization can be leveraged to consolidate multiple disparate CPU compute boards into a single multi-core offering on a single compute board or CPU. This consolidation needs to satisfy the demands that the application requires in areas such as determinism, low latency, and fine-grained control over device configuration.

reduce component costs while increasing performance

Use embedded virtualization to reduce component costs by consolidating multiple single-processor boards onto a single multi-core CPU

Embedded virtualization allows existing product designs to migrate with minimal effort from legacy single-core CPUs onto multi-core CPUs.

Wind River embedded virtualization customers realize the following benefits of consolidation:

The following are examples of consolidation using embedded virtualization:

When evaluating and selecting an embedded virtualization solution, it is important to select a vendor that provides a complete product portfolio of real-time operating systems tightly integrated with a real-time hypervisor and complete development toolchain on a multitude of hardware architectures. Be sure to explore Wind River Embedded Development Kits to evaluate our complete suite of real-time and embedded products preinstalled on dedicated hardware.
