Certified SCIOPTA IEC61508 SIL3 Safety Real-Time Operating System for ARM certified by TÜV

SCIOPTA Systems AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating System certified to IEC61508/EN50128 by TÜV Munich for the ARM7/9 and XScale Microprocessors to be used in safety related systems up to SIL3.
The SCIOPTA ARM IEC61508-P3 Safety Kernel is written in highly optimized assembler and specifically tuned for the ARM microprocessors. This results in a very high performance and a low memory footprint.

The SCIOPTA ARM IEC61508-P3 Safety Kernel has been developed according to: risk level SIL3 (IEC61508-3) and SIL3/4 (EN50128). It has been tested by TÜV according to: IEC 61508-1, IEC 61508-3, IEC61508-4 and EN 50128.

The SCIOPTA ARM IEC61508-P3 delivery contains the Certificate, the Certfication Report of Functional Safety and the Safety Manual, which provides guidance on how to safely use SCIOPTA.

SCIOPTA is royalty free and is certified to be used with the IAR ARM C/C++ Compiler, IAR ARM Assembler and IAR ARM Linker

Kernel Awareness iSystem SCIOPTA RTOS Kernel Awareness for iSYSTEM winIDEA

A SCIOPTA kernel awareness plug-in for iSYSTEMs integrated development environment winIDEA is now available. It is based on iSYSTEMs plug-in framework to integrate external applications into the winIDEA IDE.

The SCIOPTA/winIDEA plug-in is part of our product portfolio and completes the SCIOPTA DRUID system-level debugger.

The kernel awareness plug-in includes the display of processes, modules, pools and other SCIOPTA objects. So all that is necessary to get a picture of what is going on while an application has been executed on a target system. It mainly helps a customer to measure stack load, system status and to identify unreleased messages within the SCIOPTA message pool.

The iSYSTEM debugger gives a low-level view of the application behaviour where as the DRUID system level debugger covers the system level (application behaviour on a process and module level).

About iSYSTEM

As your technological partner iSYSTEM offers expert knowledge based on more than 23 years of experience with embedded systems. We are pioneers in emulation and debug technology for 8-/16-/32-bit microcontroller architectures and FPGA based emulator hardware tools and fulfill our obligation for an efficient, secure and fast development of your embedded systems application.

iSYSTEM specializes in embedded development and test tools, supports customers with their embedded projects and provides professional services. Our vision is to easily enable developers and testers to use embedded development and test tools within the complete development process. The development environment is easy to learn and to use, and open interfaces allow for the flexible integration and application of the iSYSTEM solutions in the entire development process.

STM32 SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating System supports now STMicroelectronics' STM32

SCIOPTA Systems AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating Systems for the STMicroelectronics'® STM32 Microcontrollers.

The SCIOPTA STM32 RTOS is written in highly optimized assembler and specifically tuned for the STM32 microcontrollers. This results in a very high performance and a low memory footprint.

SCIOPTA is fully dynamic. All system resources such as modules, processes and message memory pools can be created and killed during run-time.

Beside the fast Real-Time Kernel there is IPS (Internet Protocols, TCP/IP), IPS Applications (Web Server, DHCP, DNS, SMTP, Telnet, TFTP etc.), SFFS (Flash File Systems), USB support, embedded GUI graphics support and the DRUID System Level Debugger available.

SCIOPTA is royalty free and supports actually the C/C++ compilers and environments from IAR Systems, GNU GCC and ARM RealView.

STM32 (CORTEX M3) Microcontrollers

The STM32 family of 32-bit Flash Microcontrollers is based on the breakthrough ARM Cortex™-M3 core - a core specifically developed for embedded applications. The STM32 family benefits from the Cortex-M3 architectural enhancements including the Thumb-2 instruction set to deliver improved performance with better code density, significantly faster response to interrupts, all combined with industry leading power consumption.

The STM32 family is built to offer new degrees of freedom to MCU users. It offers a complete 32-bit product range that combines high-performance, real-time, low-power and low-voltage operation, while maintaining full integration and ease of development.

Compatibility of pin-assignments, peripherals and software across all STM32 devices is a core technical feature throughout this family of microcontrollers.

PXA320 SCIOPTA System Software ported to Marvell's® PXA320

SCIOPTA Systems AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating Systems for the Marvell® PXA320 processor.

The SCIOPTA PXA320 RTOS is written in highly optimized assembler and specifically tuned for the PXA320 processors. This results in a very high performance and a low memory footprint.

SCIOPTA is fully dynamic. All system resources such as modules, processes and message memory pools can be created and killed during run-time.

Beside the fast Real-Time Kernel there is IPS (Internet Protocols, TCP/IP), IPS Applications (Web Server, DHCP, DNS, SMTP, Telnet, TFTP etc.), SFFS (Flash File Systems), USB support, embedded GUI graphics support and the DRUID System Level Debugger available.
Board Support Packages are available for Phytec phyCORE®-XScale/PXA320, Toradex Colibri PXA320 and Keith & Koep Trizeps V - Marvell XScale PXA320.

SCIOPTA is royalty free and supports actually the C/C++ compilers and environments from IAR Systems, GNU GCC and ARM RealView.

Marvell's® PXA320 Processor

Leading the PXA3xx processor family, the PXA320 processor, with scalable performance to 800 MHz, plus additional industry-leading processing features, enables outstanding compute and video performance for high-end, multimedia cell phones and PDAs, industrial embedded solutions, and enterprise-class devices. Built on a low-power 90 nm process technology, and with the ability to dynamically scale voltage and frequency on demand, the PXA320 supports today’s stringent requirements for longer battery life.
