Express Logic's ThreadX SMP certified for use in safety-critical IoT systems

January 16, 2018 ECD Staff

Express Logic, Inc. has announced that its ThreadX SMP RTOS has achieved the highest level of SGS-TÜV Saar certification for embedded development in safety-critical systems using symmetric multicore processing architectures. SGS-TÜV Saar, a joint venture of Germany’s SGS Group and TÜV Saarland, is an accredited, independent company for testing, auditing, verifying, and certifying embedded software for safety-related systems.

This certification ensures compliance with the industrial safety standard IEC 61508 and all standards derived from it, including IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, and EN 50128 SW-SIL 4. As these standards are used to ensure the functional safety of electrical, electronic, and programmable electronic safety-related medical devices, process control systems, industrial machinery, and railway control systems, compliance with them makes ThreadX SMP ideal for use in the development of safety-critical IoT devices.

With a memory footprint as small as 10KB and sub-microsecond interrupt response and context switch, ThreadX SMP enhances symmetric multicore architectures from ARM, Intel, NXP, MIPS, and Synopsys while retaining hard real-time responsiveness.
