Embedded Office, a specialist company for embedded systems that specialises in safety-critical applications, has extended the range of its Cert-Kits and is now
offering for µC/OS-II a component pre-certified on the 16-bit microcontroller C167 from Infineon, which supports manufacturers of safety-critical systems in the standard-compliant development according to DIN EN50128 SIL-4. The C167 is a proven microcontroller, which is used very frequently in industry. The C167 is typically used in the automotive sector, in medical engineering and in industry, for example in railway applications.
By using the real-time kernel µC/OS-II as a pre-certified component, this product facilitates the development of safety-critical applications and considerably reduces the certification process. The Cert-Kit comprises all the elements required for creating an executable application. These include the certified source code, various software manuals such as safety, target integration, user, reference and system manual. The Cert-Kit also contains validation software (including reference board support package) and the TÜV certificate pertaining to the type approval of the pre-certified software component. Upon request, the test environment can also be made available to customers. The Cert-Kit provides flexibility so Embedded Office can adapt the certification of µC/OS-II with minimum effort to other CPUs and development environments. In addition to the standard EN50128, it is also suitable for the development of safety-critical devices according to the standards IEC62304 (med ical sector) and IEC61508 (industrial applications).
