Hypervisor / Multivisor


Embedded designers are increasingly turning to system virtualization to dramatically transform product development. Virtualization consolidates disparate systems onto dedicated virtual machines, running on a single hardware platform. In addition, the hardware abstraction afforded by virtualization enables rapid migration to new hardware, freeing developers to focus on differentiating features and functionality.

Multivisor

INTEGRITY Multivisor offers many compelling benefits:


  • Lower production costs through hardware consolidation
  • Faster time-to-market by removing the pain of porting operating systems to new hardware and existing applications to new operating systems
  • Longer time-in-market by reusing legacy operating systems and software
  • Higher product pricing power due to increased features in smaller form factors
  • Flexibility to run arbitrary, unmodified guest operating systems, including Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and Android
  • Ability to combine hard real-time and/or reliability-critical processing with guest operating system functionality
  • Enabling new device use cases, like multiple guest instances with varying level of security
  • Built on INTEGRITY, the leading safety and security certified operating system
  • Products and expert engineering support from a trusted, independent virtualization supplier that you can partner with for the long term



  • Applications of INTEGRITY Multivisor:


  • Telecom blade consolidation
  • Automotive E-Cockpit
  • Next-generation mobile devices
  • Electronic flight bag
  • Intelligent weapons systems
  • INTEGRITY Multivisor is by far the most powerful, reliable, and flexible embedded virtualization solution available. INTEGRITY Multivisor can host arbitrary guest operating systems alongside a comprehensive suite of real-time applications and middleware. Applications and guest operating systems are flexibly scheduled across one or multiple cores, can communicate efficiently with each other, and utilize system peripherals according to a strict access control model.

    INTEGRITY Multivisor provides flexible and powerful mechanisms for managing cores. The Multivisor can statically bind guest operating systems to cores, in an Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) model, or dynamically schedule workloads in a Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) model, depending on system requirements.
