SAFERTOS from WHIS is a pre-emptive, safety critical RTOS that delivers unprecedented levels of determinism and robustness to embedded systems, whilst using minimal resources. It’s used internationally across a range of safety critical applications and is renowned for its high quality. SAFERTOS is available pre-certified to ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3. A key advantage of SAFERTOS is the upgrade path from FreeRTOS to SAFERTOS; prototype using FreeRTOS and convert to SAFERTOS at the start of formal development.
The QNX Neutrino® Realtime Operating System (RTOS) is a safe and secure 64-bit OS designed to enable the next-generation of mission-critical products for automotive, medical, transportation, military and industrial embedded systems. QNX Neutrino provides high performance and helps guard against system malfunctions, malware, and cyber attacks by implementing a multi-level, policy-driven security model that incorporates best-in-class security technology from BlackBerry. The OS also offers a safety pedigree proven by certification to ISO 26262 ASIL D (the highest level achievable) for automobiles and to IEC 61508 SIL 3 for industrial automation systems, and by compliance with IEC 62304 for life-critical Class III medical devices.
Extensions to the QNX Momentics Tool Suite provide development and debugging features for SAFERTOS tasks running on adjacent MPU cores within the SOC. Developers can leverage one IDE and common tool suite based on open standards including Eclipse and GCC to speed up all phases of development. Example functionality includes the QNX Momentics debugger that allows developers to concurrently debug multiple applications coded in C and C++ across heterogeneous ARM cores.
