Intel’s Wind River software division is out this week with a new embedded Linux release that adds new carrier grade and workflow capabilities to the platform.
Wind River entered the Linux space in 2004 as an optional alternative embedded operating system to its own VxWorks embedded system. With Wind River Linux 4.0, the company is building on some of its past systems by extending real-time Linux capabilities. One such real-time capability comes in the form of the preempt_rt Linux kernel.
