Education Services for Medical Applications

Recent technological advances in connectivity, virtualization, and multi-core processors have engendered new possibilities for efficient and improved medical care, while the aging population is driving more demand for in-home care and support. Medical device manufacturers need to innovate in order to seize these opportunities while continuing to meet the most stringent safety and security requirements.

Are your engineers ready? Multi-core processors can consolidate hardware, cut costs, and reduce time-to-market, but is your team prepared to exploit those advantages? Are they educated on the choices among asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP), symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), and embedded virtualization technologies? How much of your existing code and development processes can be leveraged? Do your engineers have the background to make appropriate trade-offs among security, performance, and scalability?

Your team can benefit from Wind River® Education Services if you are looking to reduce your time-to-market and avoid lengthy trial-and-error cycles. Our professionally designed courses provide in-depth guidance and hands-on practice for the challenges faced by designers of embedded medical devices. With mentoring from our experienced engineering specialists, your engineers can immediately apply their knowledge within your processes, systems, and environment.


The Wind River Learning Subscription offers unlimited anytime, anywhere access to in-depth e-Learning courses that help solve the toughest challenges in designing state-of-the-art intelligent medical systems. Get the knowledge you need, when you need it in a single annual subscription.
