Tilera Announces Wind River's VxWorks Now Supports TILE Architecture

Integration of VxWorks and Tilera's TILE Processors Enables High Performance-per-Watt Solutions for Defense, Telecommunication, Networking Infrastructure

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) - Tilera® Corporation, the leader in many-core general purpose microprocessors, today announced that its TILEPro family of many-core processors is now supported by Wind River's VxWorks® 6.8 operating system, the embedded industry's leading real-time operating system (RTOS). This development enables customers to easily integrate VxWorks applications into TILEPro processor architectures.

"Tilera has over 50 design wins in the embedded market and we are on track to double this number in 2011. We are winning designs across multiple vertical market segments including network security, sensor data processing, wireless baseband, and audio/video processing," said Vijay Aggarwal, Vice President of Business Development at Tilera. "The VxWorks OS support for Tilera processors brings best-in-class multicore hardware and software platform solutions to our customers."

"Wind River continues to improve performance and broaden hardware support in our runtime platforms to enable the next generation of intelligent, connected devices," said Marc Brown, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for VxWorks Product Division at Wind River. "Defense, networking and telecom equipment manufacturers face tremendous challenges of ever increasing performance and power-efficiency requirements. Tilera is one of the most advanced companies with products meeting both requirements and having a roadmap that continues to deliver to these requirements."

The TILEPro family of processors consists of the TILEPro36™ and the TILEPro64™ that deliver the highest compute performance to a wide range of embedded applications. These devices feature either 36 or 64 identical processor cores (tiles) interconnected with Tilera's iMesh™ on-chip network. Each tile is a complete, full-featured processor as well as an L1 and L2 cache and a non-blocking switch that connects the tiles into the mesh. In addition, Tilera's configurable "hardwalling" technology allows the developer to divide the TILEPro processor array into separate clusters to enable application and network partitioning at the core level. These devices address the demanding computing needs of high-end multimedia, advanced networking, and wireless infrastructure systems.

Wind River has a distinct advantage within the embedded industry with its comprehensive software portfolio, which includes industry-leading embedded software operating systems, runtime technologies, development tools (including virtual systems development) and an embedded test management solution. Wind River is well known for its rich technology heritage of industry-specific software solutions, combined with global professional services and support. The Tilera processor family is supported by Wind River's A&D Services Team.
