Synopsis

Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) software can be used to decrease time-to-market and increase the reliability and safety of industrial controls equipment if the right technology is selected. The wrong choice of key technologies can cripple your ability to create strong arguments about the safety of your device, ultimately endangering your ability to get through safety certification and make it to market at all. We'll examine several different COTS technologies and identify fundamental properties of each that can be leveraged in the creation of a safety case to meet IEC 61508 requirements including:

--  Operating Systems
--  Development Tools
--  Virtualization Technology
    

Green Hills Software will demonstrate in booth 2533:

Platform for Industrial Safety based on the IEC 61508 SIL3-certified INTEGRITY real time operating system -- incorporates the safety-certified INTEGRITY® real-time operating system, a broad range of middleware including communications protocols and graphics, secure virtualization, and an integrated tool suite that addresses software developers' needs throughout the development process. This platform will be demonstrated on the Texas Instruments Zoom™ OMAP3530 development kit.
