Maximize Performance

Wind River VxWorks

Max out Multi-core Performance
with Wind River VxWorks

Moving to multi-core does not guarantee big performance gains equivalent to your platform's core configuration. You need an operating system with advanced features that allows you to increase performance commensurate with your core count while still maintaining secure and robust isolation. VxWorks is the only real-time operating system capable of exercising the full power of the T4240's multiple cores and acceleration enhancements.

  • Full hardware thread optimized scheduling
  • Unique multi-core configurations including symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP), and SMP m2n (any-to-any)
  • Memory management unit (MMU) 40-bit physical address support
  • Data path acceleration architecture (DPAA):
    • Cryptography acceleration
    • RegEx pattern matching acceleration
    • (De)Compression acceleration
    • Packet parsing, classification, and distribution
  • Power management
  • AltiVec technology support

Learn more about how VxWorks makes the most out of your multi-core platforms.

Wind River Simics

Evolve Your QorIQ T4240 Platform from Prototype to Deployment with Wind River Simics

Get a jumpstart on your multi-core migration with Wind River Simics, our full system simulation platform that delivers access support for the T4240—in advance of hardware availability. Our operational T4240 model simulation runs our market-leading and advanced multi-core-capable VxWorks real-time operating system so you can experience the highest performance and consolidation benefits possible with the T4240 platform.

With Simics, you can perform unique and valuable software analysis and test scenarios on the T4240 model simulation:

  • Perform “what-if” analysis during application migration from single- to multi-core architectures
  • Take system snapshots and control over time, even reverse it to locate bugs and bottlenecks
  • Control and inspect all aspects of hardware devices

Learn more about how you can start developing right now on Freescale’s QorIQ T4240 with Wind River Simics.



Freescale QorIQ T4240

Experience the Next Generation of Multi-core Performance with the Freescale QorIQ T4240

The 24-virtual-core T4240 SoC, which scales up to 1.8 GHz, is ideal for combined control and data plane processing. It includes support for hardware-assisted virtualization and delivers enhancements to the QorIQ data path acceleration architecture (DPAA) with accelerators for cryptography, enhanced regular expression pattern matching, and compression/decompression. Like other QorIQ devices, the T4240's high level of integration offers significant space, weight, and power benefits compared to multiple discrete devices.
