Starterkits speed up code safety standard compliance for IEC62304/61508, EN50128

August 19, 2014 // By Julien Happich
A specialist in safety-critical applications, Embedded Office is offering pre-certified components in the form of its Cert-Kits that support manufacturers of safety-relevant systems in accordance with the standards IEC62304, IEC61508 and EN50128 in standard-compliant development.

The 'starterkits' are executable systems, which allow users to immediately commence the development of a certification project. The starterkits comprise the source code of a given microcontroller for the respective development tool. They are available for the following products;

Real-time kernel µC/OS-II with memory protection (µC/OS-MPU)

Partitioning system (µC/TimeSpaceOS)

The core of the starterkit is a component that comprises a flexibly deployable hardware programming interface from the respective product to the microcontroller employed using the respective development tools. The component can be adapted by configuring the hardware wiring of the microcontroller.

It supports all the necessary units of a microcontroller for operating a random real-time kernel. Furthermore, additional units are integrated in case the respective product should require these. The component has been prepared for use in safety-critical applications, meaning that mechanisms for monitoring the integrity are already integrated.
