Originally part of the aerospace group, located in Bristol UK and San Jose USA, WHIS is the Group’s centre of excellence for high integrity and safety critical embedded systems design. WHIS is first and foremost a Safety Engineering Company. This is a key differentiation in the RTOS market as WHIS have direct experience developing safety critical applications, such as, flight control systems, implanted active medical devices, and sub sea oil and gas platforms. Consequently, WHIS engineers have a profound knowledge of safety critical development, and high integrity development life cycles are well and truly institutionalised within company working practices. Today our primary focus is the development and supply of mission and safety critical RTOS.
The SAFERTOS Story
Since 2007 the primary focus has been the development and supply of mission and safety critical RTOS and middleware components. WHIS engineers took the FreeRTOS functional model, exposed it to a full HAZOP, identified all areas of weakness within the functional model and API, mitigated all areas of weakness, and took the resulting requirements set through an IEC 61508 SIL 3 development life cycle, the highest possible for a software only component.
