VxWorks 653 v2.2 and DO-178B Network Stack accelerate time-to-market and provide advanced networking communications for complex safety-critical products

Wind River announced the release of VxWorks 653 Platform 2.2, its ARINC 653 Integrated Modular Avionics platform for safety-critical systems. The new version of VxWorks 653 underscores Wind River's commitment to providing the avionics market with a proven, highperformance, low-risk ARINC 653 operating system, with complete DO-178B Level A certification artifacts and full support for DO-297-based, role-based modular application development to increase development efficiency, accelerate customer deployments, greatly reduce certification time and cost, and reduce cost-of-change. VxWorks 653 is already in use by leading providers in the aerospace and defense industry, including Boeing, GE Aviation and Rockwell Collins.

VxWorks 653 Platform 2.2 comes integrated with the Eclipse-based Wind River Workbench development environment. Wind River Workbench enables seamless collaboration between hardware and software designers and developers. Customers deploying VxWorks 653 are able to reduce complexity and certification costs with JTAG-based Wind River On-Chip Debugging in a partition. DO-178B certification efforts on ARINC 653 systems are simplified by decreasing the demand for more expensive debug ports on airborne hardware platforms. The platform supports an extended list of microprocessors, including Freescale's 7xx, 74xx, 82xx, 84xx and 86xx processors and IBM's 750GX, and COTS hardware boards from Aitech, Curtiss-Wright/DY4, Lockheed Martin, Motorola ECC and Wind River. Wind River also announced the release of its DO-178B Network Stack with complete Level A artifacts to provide advanced networking capabilities to safety-critical systems.

Optionally available with the new VxWorks 653 is a package of DO-178B Certification Evidence. With more than 65,000 hyperlinked files detailing the certification specifications and processes, the Certification Evidence substantially increases certification reliability, enables vendors to share and leverage prior certification work and widens the review process to multiple certification authorities. The prior version of VxWorks 653, version 1.x, was the first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) ARINC 653 operating system to achieve DO-178B certification with multiple levels of criticality.

Availability

VxWorks 653 Platform 2.2 and the Wind River DO-178B Network Stack will be available in November 2007. Wind River's DO-178B Network Stack will be available on VxWorks 653 Platform 2.2. DO-178B/ED-12B Certification Evidence will be available in Q1, 2008.
