Wind River Platform Shrinks Time-to-Market for Innovative Dental Solution

Dental technology leader delivers networked x-ray product in record time

Full Success Story

“Wind River Platform for Medical Devices provides us with a robust, industry-recognized RTOS solution. This, combined with comprehensive Wind River Professional Services, enabled us to meet very aggressive time-to-market goals.”

—Michael Dalpiaz, Head of Embedded Software Imaging Systems, Sirona Dental Systems

THE OBJECTIVE

Dental technology leader Sirona Dental Systems, Inc., maintains its competitive advantage by developing tools that give practicing dentists a professional edge. Its product line of extra-oral 2-D/3-D X-ray devices was a breakthrough, one the company wanted to cement by adding networking capability to send X-ray images to PCs to process and display. To ensure performance and reliability, the team knew they needed an RTOS. They also needed to develop their product fast.

HOW WIND RIVER HELPED

Wind River® Platform for Medical Devices brought together the VxWorks RTOS, an embedded development suite, a core network stack, and robust security components. Added to this was support for the PowerPC architecture via custom board support packages. Finally, Wind River Professional Services was instrumental in getting Sirona’s own developers up to speed fast.

THE RESULTS

Sirona’s engagement with Wind River brought a well-tested, high-performing product to market in record time—making good on the company’s promise of revolutionary technology that’s easy to use.
