Ottobock_logo_600

Ottobock is a world leading supplier of high quality solutions that restore human mobility. They have produced the world’s most technologically advanced microprocessor prosthetic leg- the Genium X3. Its embedded microprocessor allows for natural movement like never before.

In the past, Ottobock have used custom embedded software for these microprocessors, but after a thorough and rigorous evaluation, Ottobock chose SAFERTOS for their software platform - to replace all of their custom embedded software across their microprocessor controlled lower limb prostheses.

TTControl have this to say about WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems:

The ‘main loop’ application is split into multiple working tasks that run until they are interrupted by a higher-priority task, blocked (waiting for an external event) or until a time limit expired. While waiting for the external event or their next turn to run, other tasks are allowed to execute, which enables faster control loops leading to an increased efficiency of CPU usage.

Product Manager TTControl

OrganOx Logo

OrganOx® Ltd is a late-stage medical device development company with a mission to increase the quality and supply of organs for transplantation. Their first product, the OrganOx metra®, uses SAFERTOS. The metra made headlines in 2013 with the first “warm liver” transplant using an organ that was kept alive at body temperature during transport. The metra utilises a patented process of “auto-regulation” allowing the liver to self-regulate pressures and flows of oxygenated blood at normothermic temperatures. The auto-regulation method and algorithms have been developed through over 15 years of research with over 200 pre-clinical perfusions reported in over 30 peer-reviewed publications and reviews. 

OrganOx have been a repeat customer since 2013.

Magnetrol Logo

The future of advanced process control solutions is being powered by Magnetrol® – the level and flow expert and your preferred partner for operational efficiency, safety and performance.

The Model 706 is a smart transmitter operating upon the principles of Guided Wave Radar (GWR). Designed to provide continuous level measurement well beyond that of many traditional technologies, the Model 706 can be utilized in virtually all level measurement and control applications, including those containing visible vapors, or media with varying dielectric constant or specific gravity.

Utilizing Patented Diode Switching Technology, the Model 706 offers best-in-class signal strength and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) resulting in enhanced capability in difficult, low dielectric applications.

Magnetrol have this to say about SAFERTOS:

We have used SAFERTOS in several of our industrial products; the RTOS as well as the expert support available have both proven to be exceptional.

- Chris Turcotte, Magnetrol

Potenza Logo

The propeller car is a test bench for an electric, contra rotating propulsion system for light aircraft developed by Potenza for ContraElectric. The system has been run up to 70mph, and met thrust predictions for the fixed propeller arrangement, including the ability to regenerate energy and develop a reverse thrust.

ASIL integrity software has been developed in Simulink from MathWorks, and autocoded using the Embedded coder. The coding toolchain has been integrated with SAFERTOS, and blocks sets and techniques developed to facilitate the use of memory management, and process protection such that customers can write application code in Simulink at a QM level, with freedom from interference of the underlying safety code (ASIL B), provided as a protected block within the environment.

Potenza started development with SAFERTOS CORE, and upgraded to SAFERTOS when they were ready.

Scame Sistemi have this to say about SAFERTOS:

As producers of Fire & Gas alarm control panels, we have used SAFERTOS to develop a CAN-based distributed I/O bus system for use in critical safety applications. We have appreciated SAFERTOS for several design reasons and, above all, for its performance and dependability from the point of view of functional safety. Last but not least, we are satisfied with the effective technical support provided by WITTENSTEIN.

BDRL Logo

Beijing Dragon Resources Ltd. (BDRL) is a famous automation solution company that focuses on the Oil & Gas market in China. Their most popular products are SCADA/PLC/RTU.

Over the past 17 years BDRL has provided the system and service in 70% of gas field projects, and 60% of long distance gas pipeline projects in China.

BDRL are now developing a new functional safety control system, with SAFERTOS embedded in the controller module. This new safety control system supports 500 IO points, with every part of the system designed to support redundancy.

BDRL chose SAFERTOS as it successfully balances functional safety and performance. Using SAFERTOS made development simpler, meaning that more time could be spent on the controller application.

BDRL Product Picture

Beijing Dragon Resources Ltd. have this to say about SAFERTOS:

SAFERTOS is a realtime, lightweight, safe operating system. It's very suitable for our controller. Some mechanisms in SAFERTOS are particularly useful, especially the MPU functionality that separates safe and non-safe code. We have very good cooperation with WITTENSTEIN. Our issues are always responded to quickly and helpfully.

- WangYue, Technical Director, BDRL

OPENRTOS IE for the Intel Innovation Engine

The Innovation Engine is a small Intel architecture processor and I/O sub-system embedded into Intel’s next generations of Server Platforms. The Intel IE enables system builders to create their own unique, differentiating firmware for the server, storage and networking markets. Some possible usages include a lightweight BMC providing basic manageability and reduce overall system cost, or to improve server performance by offloading BIOS and BMC routines to the IE.

OpenRTOS IE is a fast, lightweight, small footprint Real Time Operating System complete with a comprehensive set of IE device drivers. OpenRTOS is the smallest RTOS option enabled for the Intel IE, with the RTOS requiring less that 10Kbytes and the entire RTOS and IE driver solution less than 100Kbytes, maximizing the amount of memory available for the system builder’s application code. More information and contact form here.
