PikeOS™ SIL 4 certification on multi-core platform
SYSGO announces it achieved to certify its PikeOS™ real-time OS and hypervisor within a multi-core platform according to EN 50128 SIL 4. The certificate has been delivered by TÜV-SÜD.
SYSGO was able to achieve the first EN 50128 SIL 4 certification of the market on a multi-core system (including SIL 4 certification for IOMMU) thanks to the solid foundation offered by the PikeOS™ core technology, designed from the ground up to be the first SSV (Safe & Secure Virtualization) RTOS of the market. SIL 4 is the highest possible safety level for the EN 50128 standard.
“With PikeOS™, SYSGO was already the first company on the market to offer a certified hypervisor to the safety-critical application domains”, said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing at SYSGO. “Making now PikeOS™ certified for a multi-core platform is just the confirmation of the cutting-edge nature of this product, designed to be both an RTOS and a hypervisor. It is also another evidence of the scalability and flexibility of this embedded virtualization solution that can address different industry sectors with the same core technology.”
The project, a railway application to be deployed in 2014, is using PikeOS™ 3.4 running on Kontron VX3035 board. The technique that allows this high level of certification cannot be disclosed at that point but the original and patented architecture of PikeOS™ was used without modification to provide the necessary determinism on this dual-core Intel® Core™ i7processor.
SYSGO is also involved in different activities related to the certification of multi-core based systems in other industry sectors such as avionics or automotive. The major achievement in the railway domain is an important milestone, as well as invaluable experience, for these areas where developments with key partners are currently in progress.
PikeOS™ is both an RTOS (Real-Time Operating System) and a type 1 hypervisor built upon the Safe and Secure Virtualization (SSV) technology that enables multiple operating system interfaces, called Personalities, to work safely and securely on separate sets of resources within a single machine. PikeOS™ has the largest range of supported Personalities of the market, including PikeOS™ Native, ARINC 653, Linux, POSIX, Certified POSIX, Android™, RTEMS, AUTOSAR, iTRON and others.
The PikeOS™ microkernel architecture allows it to be used in cost sensitive, resource constrained devices as well as large, complex systems. The simplicity and compactness of the PikeOS™ design results in real-time performance that competes head-to-head with conventional proprietary RTOS solutions. PikeOS™ supports single- and multi-core processor architectures. Support of multi-core offers a flexible approach to the user who can select an execution model ranging from a pure AMP (Asymmetric Multi Processing) to full SMP (Symmetric Multi Processing). PikeOS™ is certifiable to safety standards like DO-178B/C, IEC 61508, EN 50128, IEC 62304 or ISO 26262, is MILS compliant, and is currently involved in various security standard Common Criteria EAL certification projects.
