Virtualization Techniques for Medical Device Developers

LynuxWorks™, Inc., presented a workshop on both software and hardware virtualization techniques at the recent Software Design for Medical Devices conference in Philadelphia. The company gave an “under-the-hood” look at their LynxSecure separation kernel and embedded hypervisor, demonstrated how it can help consolidate both hardware and software for multiple modes on a single system, and showed how an embedded hypervisor allows developers to easily migrate software applications to next-generation hardware, at the same time adding security functionality required for connected devices.
