Course Description

The Wind River® Helix™ Virtualization Platform Essentials for Industrial course provides engineers with a fast, cost-effective way to acquire the skills necessary to develop safety-critical applications with Helix Platform.

Course Results

After this course, participants will be able to perform the following:

  • Plan systems consisting of multiple virtual machines running on a single hardware target
  • Configure and build all parts of the system, including the hypervisor kernel, virtual machines, guest operating systems, and virtual networks, with Helix Platform
  • Develop, test, and debug safety-critical applications with the Helix Platform real-time operating system (RTOS)
  • Use Helix Platform–specific Wind River Workbench facilities such as VIRTIO, VNIC, shared memory, and direct interrupts to configure Helix Platform applications
  • Build applications within partitions and use VIRTIO devices from partitions
  • Use core tools such as debuggers and Wind River System Viewer efficiently

Products Supported

  • Helix Platform (version SR-0610)

Who Should Attend

  • Application developers creating standards-based safety-critical applications
  • Developers who primarily use C and need to develop partition-based applications using the features of the Helix Platform and VxWorks 7 partition operating systems

Course Format

  • This four-day, expert-led course consists of lectures and lab sessions.
  • Attendees use Helix Platform to gain experience with the topics presented.
  • Participants examine and exercise simulated network topologies in hands-on labs.
  • Participants receive individual guidance from an expert engineer who has extensive experience with Wind River technologies.
