Helix Edge Platform addresses critical infrastructure development needs
Wind River’s Helix Virtualization Platform combines the company’s commercial RTOS and embedded Linux distribution into an edge compute software platform that allows other operating systems to run unmodified within the same framework.

Helix Platform allows legacy software to remain unchanged while running alongside new applications, while providing a consistent, scalable and agile platform for edge devices. It addresses a wide range of critical infrastructure development needs, from highly-dynamic environments without certification requirements, to highly-regulated static applications such as in avionics and industrial, as well as systems requiring the mixing of safety-certified applications with non-certified ones.

The Helix Platform offers:

• Robust time and space partitioning leveraging Wind River’s RTOS and virtualization technology, safety certified functionality, and COTS certification evidence.

• Multi-operating system capabilities enable the consolidation of mixed-criticality workloads, side by side, on a single edge compute platform.

• Consolidation of multiple applications into one platform allowing common edge devices to serve diverse system architecture needs, such as low latency control functions on an RTOS alongside Linux-based applications and frameworks, such as machine learning.

The Helix platform comprises VxWorks, integrated with Wind River Linux and Wind River Simics for system simulation. It meets the safety-certification requirements of the DO-178C, IEC 61508, and ISO 26262 safety standards. Helix Platform is operating system-agnostic, providing the capability to run any unmodified guest operating system. It also provides multi-core hardware support and availability on the latest Arm, Intel, NXP, and Xilinx silicon platforms that enable both 32- and 64-bit guest operating systems.
