WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems (WHIS) and Arm announced the companies will continue their partnership by integrating WHIS into the Arm Functional Safety Partnership Program. As WHIS joins the program, the two companies will collaborate to deliver highly optimized software packages for safety critical environments.

According to WHIS, the company has a history of working in Arm based environments which include the Arm Cortex-M, Cortex-R, and Cortex-A families, as well as offering integration for Arm Trust Zone. Additionally, a variety of SAFERTOS® demos on Arm architectures are available for download from the WHIS download center

A pre-emptive safety critical real time operating systems (RTOS), SAFERTOS delivers robustness to embedded systems. Per the company, the key advantage of SAFERTOS is the upgrade path from FreeRTOS to SAFERTOS.
