Wind River Systems Inc. said Wednesday (June 22) that it is extending its strategic relationship with Freescale Semiconductor Inc. to provide support for Freescale's latest PowerPC and PowerQuicc processors across all Wind River design software optimization (DSO) platforms.

In a statement issued by Wind River Wednesday, John Fanelli, vice president of product planning and management for Wind River, said his company was committed to working with Freescale to provide communications and networking equipment companies with integrated DSO solutions to address the full lifecycle of their products.

"By tightly aligning our product roadmaps, we are able to expand our OS support, drive innovation and continue to make the device development process more efficient and more cost effective for our joint customers," Fanelli said.

Wind River said implementing a DSO strategy enables network equipment manufacturers to build powerful and reliable telecom devices and networking equipment at a lower cost while minimizing risk and time-to-market.

Wind River provides integrated support for multiple operating systems and standards-based tools that are tuned for Freescale (Austin, Texas) architecture. In addition to support for Wind River's VxWorks operating system, the company's Linux platform offering is based on the latest Linux technologies via Wind River said it is making key investments in Linux through relationships with the open-source community for device software that translates into best-of-breed solutions on Freescale silicon.

Wind River Workbench is the industry's first Eclipse-based open device software development solution, Wind River said, and plays a key role as the first integrated development environment to enable and get initial silicon up and running for the latest members of Freescale's PowerQuicc II Pro and PowerQuicc III communications processor families.

Separately Wednesday, Wind River announced it would partner with Artesyn Communication Products, a subsidiary of Artesyn Technologies, to offer Wind River Platform for Network Equipment on Artesyn's AdvancedTCA telecom blades. Artesyn also said that it has joined Wind River's Alliance Program as a platform partner.
