Intel said that Wind River will continue to develop software platforms that support multiple hardware architectures optimized for the needs of embedded and mobile customers.

Intel has signed a definitive agreement to acquire embedded software vendor Wind River for approximately $884 million (US).

A leading vendor in developing software for embedded devices, Wind River's list of microprocessor partners reads like a "who's who" list of the industry, including Intel and its competitors and partners AMD, IBM, Texas Instruments, NEC and others, said Charles King, president and principal analyst of Pund-IT.

"Well, I think there are two really interesting pieces of this. I think the point that Intel made in its press release, the importance or the growing importance of embedded systems, particularly in the mobile computing and cell phone/smartphone markets, is something that Intel has been focusing increasing attention on. In the embedded systems world, Wind River is either the largest or close to the largest player on the operating system/middleware side," King said.
