VxWorks is supported on the UEI 1G cubes and racks.
You do not need an SDcard.
You will need to provide the VxWorks boot image and development seat.
UEI does not resell VxWorks run time license(s) and no VxWorks run-time license is provided.
The UEIPAC is delivered as a Linux Based UEIPAC.
The UEIPAC-VxWorks distribution contains a BSP to run a VxWorks kernel on the CPU as well as drivers for the I/O devices to create applications. (Please see the UEIPAC VxWorks Manual manual for more details - available in the Resources tab on this page).
A key advantage of the UEIPAC is its standalone application deployment. In PowerDNA systems, the VxWorks application is written for, and runs on a host PC that is connected to one or more UEI chassis via Ethernet. In UEIPAC systems, the VxWorks application runs directly on the UEI RACK or Cube. There is no need for a separate host PC, though you can certainly connect one in a monitoring or supervisory role. The new VxWorks support allows these applications to be developed and run in either VxWorks or Linux. This allows the smaller, faster, more reliable and higher performances systems. It also eliminates the cost of a dedicated host PC and guarantees long term availability of the identical hardware. This is critical when certifying products through CE or FDA, etc.
You may now take advantage of all the hardware advantages of UEI's popular UEIPAC chassis and continue to develop your applications in VxWorks. This powerful combination provides hard real-time performance, an extremely robust and reliable operating system, allows you to develop your application in a familiar environment and last, but not least, allows you to preserve a great deal of previously written code! To deploy a UEIPAC application running VxWorks you'll need the following.
UEIPAC (any version)
The UEIPAC VxW BSP. You only need to purchase the BSP once, regardless of the number of systems you deploy.
The UEINet Avionics Gateway is an ultra compact (2.7" x 4" x 4.1") and rugged I/O system. Expandable to include over 60 different I/O configurations, including sensors, analog and digital I/O. Learn more!
