WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems Have Joined The RISC-V Foundation

WITTENSTEIN High Integrity Systems (WHIS) proudly announces its strategic membership with the RISC-V Foundation, a significant milestone in our commitment to cutting-edge technology.

WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems is proud to announce they have joined the RISC-V Foundation as a Strategic Member. The seamless integration of SAFERTOS® for the RISC-V architecture provides an exceptional foundation for your safety-critical endeavours, paving the way for innovation.

The RISC-V Foundation is an open standard non-profit organisation to develop a universal Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) that is suitable for all processors, from small, embedded microcontrollers to fast high-performance computers. RISC-V is the embodiment of design freedom, extending its reach across every sector and industry through open-source collaboration. Notably, RISC-V processors boast remarkable energy efficiency attributed to their compact, streamlined instruction sets. In embracing an open-source philosophy, RISC-V ushers in flexibility, modularity, and scalability, all underscored by an inherent freedom of licensing. Where other proprietary ISA’s have suffered from changes made to support the requirements of a single party, the RISC-V foundation has stated that absolute stability of the base architecture is a prime requirement for RISC-V.

SAFERTOS® is a pre-certified safety Real Time Operating System (RTOS) for embedded processors developed by WHIS, a global safety systems company. It delivers superior performance and pre-certified dependability whilst utilizing minimal resources.  SAFERTOS® is delivered with a Design Assurance Pack (DAP), tailored specifically for the customer processor / compiler combination. SAFERTOS® supports a wide range of international development standards and is widely used across multiple sectors. Popular due to its impressive safety credentials, SAFERTOS® also features a unique adoption model – start your project for free with FreeRTOS and upgrade to SAFERTOS® at the start of formal development.
