iWave Systems has reported that VxWorks has launched its XILINX UltraScale+ MPSoC System on Modules.
VxWorks 21.03 has now been ported on the iW-RainboW-G30M system on the module, which is powered by the ZU 4/5/7 MPSoC.
VxWorks is Industry’s leading real-time operating system for building embedded devices & systems.
The ZU 4/5/7 System on module, integrated with high-speed interfaces when built with VxWorks BSP, ensures the scalability, safety, and reliability required for mission-critical applications.
The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC series provide 64-bit processor scalability while combining real-time control with soft and hard engines for graphics, video, waveform, and packet processing.
These Adaptive SoCs complement the decade-long availability of soft-core CPUs and other soft IP for building systems on FPGAs. Adaptive SoCs then is particularly useful when high performance is required for a portion of an algorithm that can be implemented in hardware using parallel or pipelined (or a combination) techniques.
The combination of VxWorks on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC provides the foundation for secure high-speed high-performance computing applications. Highlighted below are the key features of VxWorks and UltraScale+ MPSoC, together which power devices across verticals.
With Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC finding a fit in Industrial networking (time-sensitive networking), high precision test and measurement equipment, medical imaging and avionics, VxWorks BSP help strengthen the safety, security, and modularity of the device.
Safety-critical applications like automotive, industrial motor control, avionics, and many others need to have high reliability and required Safety Integrity Levels (ASILs), for which it is necessary to mitigate soft errors and implement redundancy to have better hard fault toleration, where the combination of VxWorks and UltraScale+ MPSoC is an ideal fit.
VxWorks finds a great fit in embedded applications that require real-time, deterministic performance which requires safety and security certification in industries such as medical, aerospace, robotics, and network infrastructure.
The SOM approach for the FPGA SoCs further allows greater scalability for the end applications in terms of logic density, FPGA IOs and number of transceiver lanes.
Also, the SOM approach allows migrating new generation SoC solutions without changing the product mechanical architecture.
