WITTENSTEIN High Integrity Systems Extends Its Safety-critical RTOS Support To Include Downloadable Demos For TI's Hercules™ Safety Microcontroller Hardware Development Kits

BRISTOL, United Kingdom, Nov 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wittenstein High Integrity Systems (WHIS), a leading safety systems company, extends SAFE RTOS ® support to include downloadable demonstration projects for all Hercules™ safety microcontroller Hardware Development Kits (HDK) from Texas Instruments (TI).

Each demonstration project includes a fully functional, pre-complied, SAFE RTOS kernel library, integrated with reference source code and build files. This allows developers to explore the features and functionality of SAFE RTOS on their selected Hercules HDK. All demonstration projects are free to download from www.highintegritysystems.com.

On request, the pre-compiled SAFE RTOS kernel libraries can be supplied as 30-day source code evaluation packages, allowing developers to complete an in-depth analysis of SAFE RTOS.

SAFE RTOS is a safety-certified micro-kernel that delivers performance and dependability to safety-critical applications, while utilizing minimal resources. SAFE RTOS is supplied with a Design Assurance Pack which contains every design artifact produced during the full IEC 61508-3 life cycle. These include development and safety life cycle plans, requirements, specification and design documents, HAZOPS, source code, all verification and validation documents and related evidence.

"Combining SAFE RTOS with the Hercules safety microcontroller results in an embedded platform designed to meet the stringent requirements of IEC 61508 SIL-3," said Andrew Longhurst, Engineering Manager for WHIS. "The downloadable demo program provides an excellent method for developers to evaluate SAFE RTOS on a Hercules development kit before they make their selection."

"We're always seeking ways to ease development and safety certification for our customers," said Roy Haley, product marketing manager, Hercules safety microcontrollers, TI.  "We're excited that our customers now have easy access to evaluate and develop with SAFE RTOS running on our Hercules hardware development kits.  The combination of SAFE RTOS and Hercules integrated safety features can greatly accelerate time to market for safety critical systems."

WHIS also provides commercial-grade USB, FAT and TCP/IP middleware components for all microcontrollers within the Hercules safety microcontroller platform. Utilizing the MPU functionality of SAFE RTOS allows middleware components to be isolated from higher Safety Integrity Level (SIL) code segments. Integrated middleware purchases are delivered with a working demonstration project, allowing developers to be up and running quickly.

SAFE RTOS has been certified by TUV SUD to IEC 61508-3 SIL-3 and is suitable for use in developments requiring certification to IEC 61508 and domain-specific adaptations, IEC 62304 class C and FDA 510(k) for medical and DO 178B for aerospace applications.
