Page 1 of 1
Wind River has announced support for the Xilinx Zynq-7000 extensible processing platform (EPP) on its VxWorks operating system platform and Wind River Workbench. The Xilinx Zynq-7000 EPP combines the performance and power benefits of an ARM Cortex-A9 processor-based system-on-chip (SoC) with the flexibility and scalability of an FPGA. VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) and Wind River Workbench development tools support for the Zynq-7000 EPP is available now. Wind River is also currently working with Xilinx on Linux efforts. Wind River’s global support and services are also available to customers on this platform.
Well suited for systems that require real-time performance, the Zynq-7000 EPP combines the powerful ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system with the flexibility and scalability of Xilinx’s programmable logic in a cost-effective platform that encourages wide adoption across multiple markets. Wind River’s extended hardware support for the Zynq-7000 EPP is particularly significant to customers in the aerospace and defense, industrial, medical and networking market segments, for a variety of applications including software defined radios and other military communications technologies, consolidation of high-performance network equipment and high-speed processing in industrial control systems.
