Wind River Delivers Comprehensive Diagnostics and Test Environment for Device Development Teams
|Wind River Lab Diagnostics Enables Greater Team Productivity and "Time-to-Quality"; Brings Better Products to Market, Faster|
February 13, 2007 – Wind River, the global leader in Device Software Optimisation (DSO), today announced the availability of Wind River® Lab Diagnostics, an enterprise-class software diagnostics solution that enables cross-functional development teams to collaborate on dynamic debugging, testing, and quality assurance (QA) throughout device development. With Lab Diagnostics, Wind River extends Device Software Optimisation into the verification and validation phase of the development life cycle, enabling powerful productivity enhancements across the entire pre-release process.
"It's very hard to isolate and correct faults in running software," said Naren Nachiappan, vice president and general manager of device management at Wind River. "Wind River Lab Diagnostics gives development and test teams a powerful collaborative infrastructure for bringing better products to market, faster by enabling rapid diagnostics and repair capabilities for running software. An extended implementation phase often compresses the time a company has to test a product before releasing it to manufacturing. The tests traditionally available at the verification and validation phase either focus at the black-box level or require time-consuming recompile and reboot cycles that limit a team's ability to adequately exercise the running application."

Wind River and standards-based hardware platform provider, Emerson Network Power Embedded Computing, are collaborating on a develop-run-manage solution implemented on Emerson’s MicroTCA platform.
"Marrying Wind River's Lab Diagnostics to Emerson's business of providing network equipment providers with MicroTCA and ATCA platforms will enable us to offer our customers a commercial-grade hardware/software platform and test infrastructure that goes a long way toward ensuring product quality and shortened time to volume," said Todd Wynia, VP, product management at Emerson’s Embedded Computing Business.
