SCIOPTA is not only certifying Real-Time Operating Systems and Middleware. As device drivers are usually part of the safety function, they also need to be certified according to the same level as all other safety software in an embedded system.

Therefore SCIOPTA has certified five device drivers for the NXP PowerPC MPC57xx processors. This includes SPI, FlexCAN, ADC, Temperature and Serial Device Drivers. They have been tested by TÜV SÜD according to IEC 61508-1:2010, IEC 61508-3:2010 and IEC 61508-4:2010.
