19.06.2012 - PM: SYSGO and Rapita Systems announce partnership deal
Rapita Systems, the on-target verification specialists, and SYSGO, the leading supplier of embedded software solutions for the world’s most demanding safety and security applications, today announced a new partnership.
The new relationship allows Rapita Systems to support PikeOS, SYSGO’s SSV (Safe and Secure Virtualization Tool) in their Rapita Verification Suite (RVS) tools. PikeOS is a real-time operating system (RTOS) with a virtualization platform and an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) for embedded systems. It enables multiple operating system interfaces, called Personalities, to work safely and securely on separate sets of resources within a single machine.
Providing an RVS Integration Guide Annex (IGA) for PikeOS makes it easier for customers to get the maximum benefits of using RVS for on-target verification and optimization on applications that use PikeOS. Using RVS with PikeOS means that customers can measure worst-case execution times and code coverage on applications running under PikeOS.
“We believe combining the benefits of SYSGO tools with our Rapita Verification Suite is the most logical way to meet customer needs”, said Guillem Bernat, CEO, Rapita Systems. “SYSGO’s commitment in delivering useful features required by different industry sectors makes us very proud to have them on board with our company.”
Both Rapita and SYSGO work in safety-critical industries with certification needs, such as Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer Electronic, Defense, Industrial Automation, Medical, Network Infrastructure and Transportation. This built the foundation of their partnership and will help both companies to provide better solutions to their common customers as they work on the same projects.
“We are pleased to work closely with an on-target verification specialist. The collaboration with Rapita Systems will help our customers to optimize their projects by combining the unique features of our PikeOS with the Rapita Verification Suite”, said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing at SYSGO.
The PikeOS microkernel architecture allows it to be used in cost sensitive, resource constrained devices as well as large, complex systems. It is certifiable to safety standards like DO-178B, IEC 61508 or EN 50128, is MILS compliant, and has achieved the First Level of Security Certification delivered by the French Network and Information Security Agency. PikeOS has the largest range of supported Personalities of the market, including PikeOS Native, ARINC 653, Linux, POSIX, Certified POSIX, Android™, RTEMS, and many others (for example an AUTOSAR Personality is available through our partner OpenSynergy). It also supports many different single- and multi-core processor architectures such as x86, PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, SPARC/LEON or SH.
The IGA for PikeOS is just the beginning of greater collaboration between Rapita Systems and SYSGO and will bring the benefits of the combined solutions to a larger range of customers.
About Rapita Systems
Rapita Systems develops software tools to evaluate the timing performance and test effectiveness of critical real-time embedded systems in industries such as aerospace and automotive engineering. Rapita Verification Suite (RVS) tools increase the efficiency of testing processes; aid identification of performance bottlenecks in the typical resource constrained embedded environment; and reduce the cost of measuring, verifying and optimizing C, C++ and Ada code during on-target development and testing. Composed of dedicated aerospace and automotive variants, each with on-target timing verification (RapiTime) and on-target code coverage measurement (RapiCover) tools, RVS is the streamlined and cost-effective way to conduct on-target timing verification, optimization and code coverage.
SYSGO provides operating system technology, middleware, and software services for the real-time and embedded market. A differentiating capability of SYSGO is the SSV (Safe and Secure Virtualization) platform PikeOS, a paravirtualization operating system which is built upon a small, fast, and safe microkernel. It supports the co-existence of independent operating system personalities on a single platform, including ELinOS, SYSGO’s embedded Linux distribution. SYSGO supports international customers with services for embedded Linux, real-time capabilities and certification for safety-critical applications. Markets include Aerospace & Defense, Industrial Automation, Automotive, Transportation and Network Infrastructure. Customers include Airbus, EADS, Thales, Daimler, Raytheon, Samsung, Rheinmetall, Rockwell-Collins, Nokia Siemens, B. Braun and Rohde & Schwarz. SYSGO has facilities in Germany, France, The Czech Republic and North America, and offers a global distribution and support network, including Europe and the Pacific Rim.
