VxWorks 653 is an integrated modular avionics (IMA) platform enabling workload consolidation of safety-critical and less-critical applications sharing a common computer platform.
VxWorks Cert Edition
VxWorks Cert Edition is a platform for safety-critical applications that require DO-178C, IEC 61508, or ISO 26262 certification evidence in the avionics, transportation, industrial automation, and medical device industries.
Wind River VxWorks 653 Platform
Solving the Affordability Equation: Tighter Budgets + More Product Capability = Standards-Based Open Virtualization Platform
VxWorks 653 is a safe, secure, and reliable real-time operating system (RTOS) that delivers an open virtualization platform with robust time and space partitioning on the latest ARM®, Intel®, and PowerPC multi-core processor platforms. With technology proven by more than 360 customers over 600 safety programs in more than 100 civilian and military aircraft, VxWorks 653 is driving the transition to software-defined systems in aerospace and defense, bringing innovative technology that solves real business problems. It offers:
World leader in ARINC 653 real-time operating environments, with a proven track record of more than 220 customers across more than 440 programs in more than 80 civilian and military aircraft, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Airbus A400M, and the Northrop Grumman UH-60V Black Hawk avionics upgrade
High safety and security assurance with multi-core scheduler utilizing hardware virtualization assist
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) certification evidence
COTS certification artifacts that can accelerate the time required to accomplish certification while reducing schedule risk
Unmodified guest OS
Support for integration of both legacy applications and new applications to shared multi-core ARM, Intel, and Power architecture platforms; VxWorks and Wind River® Linux guest OSes supported out of the box
Support for a partitioned open architecture and robust partitioning that enables suppliers to modify an application that is part of an existing certified system, and only retest the scope of the components that have changed, dramatically reducing the recertification costs and total cost of ownership (TCO)
Independent build, link, and load (IBLL)
VxWorks 653 is designed around a multi-supplier, role-based supply chain per RTCA DO-297 that allows application suppliers to asynchronously develop, test, and deliver software applications independently
Maintenance and support
Full access to the Wind River worldwide support organization and a specialized team of Professional Services engineers with extensive experience in delivering design, integration, and optimization services
