Based on 35 years of Wind River industry-leading experience and the latest Yocto Project Compatible releases, Pulsar ensures your team is working with the latest open source technology, always updated and protected against security vulnerabilities.
Develop Locally or in the Cloud
The Pulsar SDK will have you quickly building applications on your device or in the cloud. In addition to traditional application development, Pulsar is connected to the Wind River family of cloud-based tools and virtual development environments.
Run Any Application from Any Ecosystem
Pulsar enables application middleware abstraction, allowing any application from any ecosystem to run on any device. You can build and add packages on the target from a certified repository—all while running multiple isolated systems (containers) on a single control host.
Develop Directly on GitHub
Begin building your project in less than five minutes. On GitHub, you’ll find build system and cross-toolchain downloads and instructions, as well as the layers and packages needed to build on Intel® hardware targets.
PROTECTION AGAINST SECURITY VULNERABILITIES
Wind River provides critical Linux updates for Pulsar systems, from Linux kernel patches to security fixes. Critical fixes are hosted in a public Wind River repository, with a full range of bug and security fixes available as an optional service.
Find Your Board
To speed your IoT and embedded development efforts, Pulsar comes preloaded on boards from our trusted partners, eliminating the hassle and time required to set up your operating system. You can also download Pulsar for other boards as well.
