Developers of Safety Critical applications upon the Zynq®-7000 from Xilinx now have the option of using SAFERTOS® at the heart of their design. SAFERTOS, the safety certified Real Time Operating System (RTOS) from WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems, provides a reliable and robust RTOS for developers of Safety Critical applications and is available pre certified to IEC 61508 and ISO 26262.

SAFERTOS is a pre-emptive safety critical RTOS that delivers unprecedented levels of determinism and robustness to embedded systems, while using minimum resources. It’s used internationally across a range of safety critical applications and is renowned for its high quality.

The Zynq-7000 is a powerful and flexible embedded solution with multiple levels of hardware and software security, architected to deliver lowest system power. It infuses customizable intelligence into today’s embedded systems to suit application requirements.

SAFERTOS is available tightly integrated with the processor, including its MMU, allowing applications to be partitioned into logical segments according to their Safety Integrity Level. Commercial grade middleware can for example be used in conjunction with safety critical code, with isolation being achieved via the MMU.
