Wind River Delivers Highest Levels of Certification Evidence for Critical Infrastructure

ALAMEDA, CA – Dec. 17, 2018 – Wind River®, a leader in delivering IoT software for critical infrastructure, today announced the release of a full suite of automotive, avionics, and industrial safety certification evidence for the latest version of VxWorks® Cert Edition. The real-time operating system (RTOS) for safety-critical applications is designed and developed to the highest achievable safety levels accepted by worldwide certification authorities.

VxWorks solutions have been used in more than 550 safety certification programs by more than 350 customers across industries. This most recent suite of certification evidence builds on Wind River’s 20-plus years of experience in safety certification software products, and demonstrates the company’s commitment to industry-leading safe, secure, and reliable solutions.

•       Avionics: DO-178C Design Assurance Level (DAL) A
•       Industrial: IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 backed by certificates issued by independently accredited certification authority TÜV SÜD
