FIRST Robotics

By Doug Gaff A colleague of mine pointed me to this very positive review of Wind River Workbench, our Eclipse-based environment for device software development. This customer was thrilled to use a product that "just works" after it's installed. He's also a big fan of Eclipse. The most humorous part of the review: The good people at Wind River allow…

I love OCD

By Doug Gaff No, I’m not talking about locking the front door exactly 3 times before going to bed or using a new bar of soap each time I wash my hands à la Jack Nicholson. I’m talking about On-Chip Debugging – using JTAG tools for device software debugging. I got my start at Wind River working on JTAG-based debuggers.…

Rhapsody && Coverage Analysis

By Paul Parkinson I've recently been working with a customer to integrate Wind River Coverage Analysis (formerly known as CoverageScope) with Telelogic Rhapsody within their development tools framework for a mission-critical system.

Here is what I read Pluginfest Day Two By Adrian Taylor Some of the tools available from WindRiver, for example, are just light years ahead of what’s available…

RDC in China

By Tomas Evensen I just came back from a couple of weeks in China. Fascinating country. Besides the usual customer visits, we also held three Regional Development Conferences (RDCs) in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Beijing. The RDCs were a huge success with on average more than 400 attendees per day. And they were all very interested in hearing about Wind River's…

RSE is a framework and toolkit in Eclipse Workbench, that allows you to connect and work with a variety of remote systems, including remote file systems through…

Wind River recently hired Sven Dummer to manage its line of Eclipse-based Wind River Workbench tools for embedded Linux developers. According to Linuxdevices.com, Sven believes strongly in the open source model: "Eclipse, Linux, and GNU is a kind of dream team for me, and Workbench combines all this, with a focus more on the commercial side."
