Wind River has announced the release of a full suite of automotive, avionics, and industrial safety certification evidence for the latest version of its VxWorks Cert Edition real-time operating system (RTOS). The RTOS for safety-critical applications is designed and developed to the highest achievable safety levels accepted by worldwide certification authorities.
VxWorks solutions have been used in more than 550 safety certification programs by more than 350 customers across industries. This most recent suite of certification evidence builds on Wind River’s 20-plus years of experience in safety certification software products, and demonstrates the company’s commitment to industry-leading safe, secure, and reliable solutions.
Like the RTOS itself, the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) evidence is designed for reuse and portability with long-term cost-of-ownership benefits for safety-critical projects, including those specifically targeting compliance to the following standards:
- Automotive: ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D backed by certificates issued by independently accredited certification authority TÜV SÜD
- Avionics: DO-178C Design Assurance Level (DAL) A
- Industrial: IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 backed by certificates issued by independently accredited certification authority TÜV SÜD
In addition to VxWorks Cert Edition, the Wind River safety portfolio includes the VxWorks 653 integrated modular avionics (IMA) platform.
