Zephyr Case Study

A multinational corporation specializing in routers, switches, gateways, and other wide-ranging network infrastructure equipment wanted to enter the in-vehicle network infrastructure market. Company leaders saw an opportunity to gain significant market share with a first-mover strategy. However, their existing product line was based on proprietary technology that ran on optimized X86 Linux. To win market share, they needed to deliver the increased computational power, heterogeneous data exchange, and ironclad security required for emerging in-vehicle network architectures on a smaller hardware architecture. The software development team decided the best way to do this was to redesign the current technology to work on a lower-cost, microcontroller-based platform.
