OS Changer VxWorks Porting Kit – Advantages

  • Allows you to easily migrate your VxWorks applications to the New OS, while saving you time and money.
  • Makes legacy VxWorks applications productive to the enterprise by allowing them to be developed and tested on many host platforms without a need for the target hardware.
  • Can also be used as a virtualized test-bench platform for performing system integration testing of your applications on host PC that provides development flexibility and huge cost savings.

OS Changer VxWorks Porting Kit – Highlights

  • Porting & Development on Windows/Linux Host
  • Enables Host based simulation, testing embedded and/or time critical applications
  • Application is connected effectively at the source code level
  • Supports multi Process, 32/64 Bit architecture, UMP/SMP muti-processor
  • Offers permanent portability solutions that actually get your VxWorks® code to move to a New OS and its variants
  • Flexible and easy to maintain, better migration to a unified OS architecture allowing for easy future migration.
  • Reduced time, provides 80-90% portability requiring little code re-write on Hardware & Device Driver specific code

OS Changer® takes advantage of OS Abstractor® Interface which provides OS Agnostic API’s and optimization benefits:

  • Statically create and reuse control objects from pool
  • Statically create and reuse threads from pool
  • Enhance performance without breaking OS API compliance
  • Configure target environment and resource requirements for various OS version and variants
  • Use OS Abstractor’s tiered memory pools to eliminate memory fragmentation
  • Use OS Abstractor’s ability to recover from software fatal errors through a soft reset
  • Use same Interface APIs within and across individual application processes
  • API Optimization and Profiling
