SAFERTOS for Safety Critical Automotive Applications

WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems (WHIS) offer SAFERTOS®, a premier safety critical real-time operating system pre-certified to ISO26262 ASIL D. SAFERTOS® is established in the automotive market, being used in ADAS, sensors, and engine control units among other applications.

To ease adoption for automotive developers SAFERTOS® can be provided as part of a complete RTOS automotive package. This is made up of:

  • SAFERTOS®: the safety critical RTOS pre-certified to ISO 26262 ASIL D. A high performance, small footprint RTOS
  • SAFECheckpoints – fulfils the requirement of ISO 26262 ASIL C&D software designs to have a runtime monitor
  • OSEK OS Adaptation Layer – creating a ‘drop-in’ OSEK OS RTOS package ideal for Automotive designs

  • This package is modular, meaning you can select just SAFERTOS®, SAFERTOS® with either SAFECheckpoints or the OSEK OS adaptation layer, or all three, knowing that each component is made to the highest quality.

    SAFERTOS® provides high performance without compromising safety, supporting all of the common architectures used within the automotive industry.

    Excelling in Multicore Environments

    SAFERTOS® is used across many different multicore architectures and designs. For those developing heterogeneous system-on-chip processors, WHIS offers an embedded software platform solution with Blackberry QNX to accelerate the development and deployment of safety certified and mission-critical applications.

    The solution builds on the safety legacy of both the WHIS SAFERTOS® and the QNX Neutrino operating system to reduce certification costs and risk while enabling development of highly reliable, mixed criticality systems. Both operating systems have been certified to ISO26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3 levels and offer a proven foundation on which to base future designs.
