Wind River has developed an interactive website that provides detailed Board Support Package (BSP) technical specifications, online discussions and download capabilities. It provides a cross-reference of hardware that integrates with the company's platforms and operating systems.
A BSP provides the collection of start-up code, device drivers, and debugging features packaged as a standardised interface between hardware and an embedded operating system.
The detailed product specifications available on the BSP site are maintained directly by Wind River's silicon and hardware partners. The site can be sorted and searched by vertical market, architecture and hardware manufacturer. Information includes platform integration details, tested run-time libraries, partner certification levels, and technical features. A BSP support community and device driver discussion group, enables direct interaction between developers, participating partners and Wind River.
