Freescale Semiconductor and Wind River Systems Inc. have announced a strategic alliance aimed at helping customers enhance system performance, reduce cost and accelerate time to market.

The alliance is designed to combine the run-time software platforms of Wind River, and the hardware acceleration architectures of Freescale, to provide performance-optimized solutions for customers in the communications and networking markets.

"The ultimate goal of this alliance is simple: offer our mutual customers easier-to-use, better integrated and higher performance solutions than competitive standalone offerings," said David Perkins, senior VP and GM of Freescale's networking and computing systems group, in a statement. "This alliance deepens our partnership to enable a comprehensive set of highly integrated, performance-optimized solutions for home, enterprise, and networking and communications infrastructure markets."

A cornerstone of the alliance is to provide extensive support for Freescale's PowerQUICC communications processors and host processors containing PowerPC cores. This support will be delivered across Wind River's broad portfolio of Device Software Optimization solutions, including its VxWorks RTOS platforms, carrier-grade Linux' platforms and eclipse-based development suite.
