UEI is an esteemed member of the Wind River Partner Program.
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.
- A VxWorks development system (from Wind River)
- A VxWorks run-time license for each UEIPAC deployed. (also purchased from Wind River )
