Wind River unveils Eclipse Device Software Development project

Wind River unveils Eclipse Device Software Development project
Wind River Systems and the Eclipse Foundation has announced that Wind River will propose and lead an Eclipse Device Software Development Platform project, the first project specifically for device software development.

With the Device Software Development Project, Wind River is bringing its expertise in device software development and run-time solutions to the Eclipse community to foster industry standardization and innovation to help companies develop and run device software better, faster, more reliably and at a lower cost.

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects.

Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director, Eclipse Foundation, Inc., said, "The goal of Eclipse is to create a universal development platform to enable global enterprises to develop software more efficiently. Wind River has deep experience in device software and will provide the vision, technology and resources to enhance the Eclipse platform specifically for embedded software development. The addition of the Device Software Development Platform project will help expand Eclipse's presence in embedded computing, a key focus area for the foundation as outlined in the recently unveiled Eclipse Roadmap."

John Bruggeman, Chief Marketing Officer, Wind River, said, "By bringing the Device Software Development Project to the market, Wind River will help change the way device software development is done. Manufacturers will now be able to standardize on choice, using a widely accepted, fully integrated development platform that supports all Eclipse technologies and is backed by an unprecedented ecosystem of industry-leading companies."
