Provider of embedded computing platforms and subsystems Eurotech and Wind River have entered into a strategic collaboration, the Wind River On-Board Programme, the companies announced on Wednesday.This collaboration will support joint sales, marketing and distribution of Embedded Development Kits, which enable embedded developers to begin application development in quickly, even in less than one hour.As part of this programme, Eurotech will offer Embedded Development Kits with validated board support packages of Wind River’s embedded Linux operating system with Eurotech’s Intel Atom processor-based hardware to help equipment manufacturers save time and money on application integration for faster, more efficient time-to-market.Each Embedded Development Kit includes a bootable USB flash drive that immediately turns any host computer into a fully integrated development environment with no installation required.The 30-day trial software from Wind River is reportedly optimised for developing, running, debugging and prototyping embedded software directly onto a Eurotech processor board using Wind River Workbench. Each Eurotech board comes preconfigured to boot Wind River Linux out of the box and the option of Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite.Also, each Embedded Development Kit is customised with a start-up guide and a set of comprehensive, step-by-step tutorials that walk developers through applicable use cases and workflows.Eurotech is one of the inaugural ecosystem members of the Wind River On-Board Programme, validating multiple embedded computing boards and platforms from Eurotech’s product line.Wind River, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation (Nasdaq:INTC), is a provider of embedded and mobile software.
