SAFERTOS® becomes part of the STM32 Functional Safety Program

Bristol, UK – WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems (WHIS) continues its strong relationship with STMicroelectronics, with SAFERTOS® becoming part of the STM32 Functional Safety Program. WHIS are experts in functional safety, and are the creators of SAFERTOS®, a safety critical RTOS available pre-certified to IEC 61508 SIL3 and ISO 26262 ASILD, that has wide support for the STM32 range of microcontrollers and microprocessors from ST.

WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems has long been an Authorized ST Partner, with both parties collaborating on a number of safety critical projects. The introduction of ST’s new Functional Safety Portal makes it easier than ever for customers to find the solutions that they need. WHIS are experts in functional safety and the creators of SAFERTOS®.

ST provides a comprehensive set of free-of-charge and certified Functional Safety packages based on robust built-in STM8 MCU and STM32 MCU and MPU safety features with the aim of significantly reducing the development efforts, time and cost required to meet functional safety standards. WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems, as an ST Authorized Partner, are experts in functional safety and support STM32 with safety critical RTOS services. WHIS and ST solutions help designers at any stage of their project: from the mapping of safety requirements to the design and validation of hardware and software, certification phase included.

SAFERTOS® is a safety critical Real Time Operating System (RTOS) that integrates well with STM32 and X-CUBE-STL. SAFERTOS is available pre-certified to IEC 61508 SIL 3, the highest possible level for a software only component. SAFERTOS 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. A range of fully functional demos are available to download from the WHIS website.

“WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems is pleased to be an ST Authorized Partner. We have worked closely with ST on many projects, and are delighted to offer our Functional Safety Expertise to ST customers,” says Andrew Longhurst, Managing Director at WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems. “SAFERTOS and the STM32 Functional Safety Package make a compelling solution, decreasing time to market for a host of applications.”

“SAFERTOS is a proven RTOS solution for STM32 users developing functional-safety applications and targeting IEC 61508 certification,” says Laurent Desseignes, Microcontroller Ecosystem Marketing Manager, STMicroelectronics. “The X-CUBE-STL self-test library for the STM32 core and memories is now available from ST on almost all STM32 product series and can be used in combination with SAFERTOS.”

Fully functional SAFERTOS demo packages for a range of STM32 MCUs are available.
