VxWorks 653 BSP for SVME183 Board
Creating a BSP with no hardware available
The client required a VxWorks 653 BSP and drivers for an avionic system and had extremely tight timescales as no hardware was available. In addition to the basic BSP, the client required MIL-STD-1553, SATA, USB, I2C, GPIO and NOR Flash.
A Simics model of the SVME183 was used to develop and debug the BSP, months before the hardware was ready. Once the BSP was working on real hardware, additional drivers were created or ported to run on VxWorks 653. Integration and then final acceptance was perfomed at the Clients’ site.
