I am looking for information on the API of the DO-178B version.
What ar the differences to the standard VxWorks API?

The 178B certified version of vxWorks is a subset of the regular API.
Things that could not be easily tested have been left out. Check out
the white paper at

There is also the ARINC 653 time/space partioned version of vxWorks,
which is also used for safety critical systems that has an API
consistent with the ARINC APEX standard.  That is documented in VxWorks
653 Programmers Guide 2.1.pdf.  You should be able to get both by
asking a rep, FAE, or maybe just requesting them online.

Good luck,

Return to VxWorks
