Embedded Office is now offering its µC/OS-MPU Cert-Kits for the Hercules™ TMS570LS31x/21x and Hercules RM48 microcontrollers (MCUs) from Texas Instruments. These ARM®-Cortex®-R4F-based MCUs offer scalable performance, connectivity, memory and safety features. These MCUs include safety features implemented in hardware, which help customers develop differentiated industrial and automotive functional safety applications.
“Functional safety is one of the most important aspects of embedded systems today. TI’s Hercules MCUs help customers meet the functional safety requirements of their embedded systems. We are delighted to be able to offer our Cert-Kits for software development on TI’s Hercules MCUs,” explains Thomas Amann, managing director of Embedded Office. “In conjunction with our support, our Cert Kits help companies meet their safety-related requirements and achieve a quick time to market.”
“Adherence to stringent functional safety standards is increasingly important for customers in a variety of markets, from automotive and transportation to industrial and others,” said Roy Haley, marketing manager, Hercules MCUs, TI. “Embedded Office’s Cert-Kits provide a pre-certified software framework to help ease the certification burden for our customers and help them accelerate time to market.”
The Cert-Kits include integration with TI’s HALCoGen tool, offering device-level initialisation and peripheral drivers, and the SafeTI Hercules Diagnostic Library. In addition to the certificate and related documentation, the Cert-Kits also comprise all elements required for creating an executable application. These include the certified source code, various software manuals and a system manual. The Cert-Kit also contains validation software (including reference board support package) and the TÜV certificate pertaining to the type approval of the pre-certified software component. Upon request, the test environment can also be made available to customers. Optionally, or if a certification requires this, all the certification documents are available upon request. If the hardware programming interface from the Cert-Kits is to be used in the safety-critical project, all the artefacts necessary for a certification are also available.
Further information on the new µC/OS-MPU Cert-Kits will be available at Embedded World 2015 (Nuremberg/Germany, 24 to 26 February, 2015) at Embedded Office’s trade fair stand in Hall 4, Stand No. 4-350.
