If by "support" you mean "run on" then no. John
Ok,thank you.
Can you tell me some reasons?

VxWorks is not an open source product. It only runs on the platforms that Windriver wants it to run on. Visit www.windriver.com for more details. Why do you want to run VxWorks on a TigerSharc? How much experience do you have with VxWorks? John

John has answered as to whether VxWorks currently runs on a TS201. If you're really asking whether it is possible, sure it's possible. I can't think of any technical reason why you couldn't run VxWorks on a TS201. But from a practical point of view, how you make this happen is another issue. As John said, WindRiver owns VxWorks, so if you have lots of $$, you may convince them to port it to the TS201 for you, or get whatever tools and source you need to do it yourself. But I'd expect this to cost lots and lots of $$. ---- Ron Huizen BittWare
