Tempe, Ariz. –Emerson Network Power has launched an Embedded Development Kit to enable design engineers to begin developing their application in a fraction of the time traditionally required.
Part of the Wind River On-Board Program, the Embedded Development Kit (part number MATXM-CORE-411-WR) includes an Emerson Network Power MicroATX motherboard based on the Intel Core i7 processor with optimized trial versions of Wind River's operating systems, development tools, embedded hypervisor and graphics software to help equipment manufacturers save time and money on application integration for a faster, more efficient time-to-market.
The LiveUSB format enables designers to boot directly from the included USB flash drive to evaluate a fully operational development environment, eliminating the installation process.
Design engineers will quickly be able to evaluate and develop using Wind River Linux 3.0 and/or Wind River VxWorks 6.8 running on Wind River Hypervisor 1.1. The 30-day trial software from Wind River is optimized for developing, running, debugging, and prototyping embedded software directly onto the Emerson Network Power MATXM-CORE-411-B motherboard using Wind River Workbench 3.2. Each kit also includes all required cables, a comprehensive startup guide, sample projects and tutorial videos.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
