EMBEDDED WORLD: Express Logic announced market-specific turnkey, safety-critical certification packs for reliability and safety-critical standards for European industrial, medical, transportation, rail, automotive and aerospace.
The pack is for use with the company's ThreadX RTOS and provides all source code, documentation, coverage analysis, validation artifacts, and summary report pre-tailored for the specific standard addressed.
For European customers, Express Logic's safety-critical certification pack supports such standards as IEC-61508 for industrial equipment, IEC-62304 for medical devices, EUROCAE ED-12B for aerospace, and the newly globalized rail standard IEC-62279 (formerly known as BS/EN-50128).
With ThreadX and the appropriate safety-critical certification pack for their application, manufacturers can mitigate their development risk by using a proven, readily-certifiable RTOS.
Express Logic says by using a reliable, field-proven COTS RTOS such as ThreadX, along with a safety-critical certification pack, developers can eliminate many developer years from their project schedule and increase the likelihood of successful, on-time completion.
The ThreadX safety-critical certification pack includes all source code, documentation, coverage analysis, validation artifacts, and summary report for submission to the governing agency as part of the overall system certification.
Each pack is pre-tailored for the specific standard addressed, the ThreadX operating system, and the target environment such as a processor, board, or development tools.
ThreadX is a small-footprint, highly-optimized, preemptive scheduling RTOS, used in demanding applications in consumer electronics, industrial automation, medical devices, and aerospace equipment. It simplifies management of real-time systems with an API, full source code, and documentation. It is licensed royalty-free with full commercial support.
