WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems (WHIS) is an RTOS company that specialises in safety, producing and supplying real-time operating systems and software components to the automotive, medical, and industrial sectors. WHIS supply SAFERTOS®, the unique real-time operating system pre-certified to IEC 61508 SIL3 and ISO 26262 ASILD by TÜV SÜD, OPENRTOS®, the commercial license for the embedded real-time operating system FreeRTOS, as well as a range of safety components, middleware, and board support packages. WHIS is able to provide professional training, support and consultancy.
SAFERTOS is a pre-emptive, pre-certified real time operating system that delivers unprecedented levels of determinism and robustness to embedded systems. It is available pre-certified to IEC 61508-3 SIL 3 and ISO 26262 ASIL D by TÜV SÜD.
SAFERTOS® is tailored to your specific processor/compiler combination, and delivered with full source code and Design Assurance Pack (DAP). The DAP gives you complete transparency over the full Design Life Cycle, and illustrates the exceptional high quality of our RTOS product. The DAP ensures:
- No retesting on target hardware is required
- Easy installation and integration into your development environment
- Reduced development costs and improved time to market
- Smooth path to certifying SAFERTOS within an application
- Royalty-free perpetual licensing
SAFERTOS® has been designed specifically for the safety sector, and deterministic priority- based scheduling is the primary Safety Requirement. Every effort has been made to ensure deterministic behaviour is maintained. To ensure this SAFERTOS has been independently certified many times on numerous platforms, to IEC61508-3 SIL3, the highest possible SIL level for a software only component.
Support for TI
SAFERTOS supports a diverse portfolio of processors and microcontrollers including Arm® cores and TI Digital Signal Processors (DSPs); from low-cost, single-core processors and microcontrollers to high-performance, purpose-built system-on-chip (SoC) devices, SAFERTOS is fully integrated by WHIS’ experienced safety engineers and ready to run “out of the box”. TI integrates a variety of features (including foundational functional safety and security enablers), that perfectly compliment SAFERTOS.
Support is available today for TI’s TDA4VM and DRA8x Processors, AM2x high-performance MCUs, Hercules™ Arm® MCUs (RM48x, TMS570 and TMS470M), and C2000™ MCUs. Speak to us today to learn more.
