PX5, a global leader in high-performance real-time operating systems and middleware, has announced off-the-shelf functional safety certification of the PX5 RTOS. Developers can leverage this certification in conjunction with their application software certification to build a safety-certified device for the automotive, industrial, and medical industries. For developers of both safety- critical and non-safety-critical devices, the certified RTOS offers a stable, reliable foundation built to industry best practices to support improved product reliability, security, quality, and time to market.

The PX5 RTOS certifications were performed by SGS-TÜV Saar, the leading accredited, independent company for testing, auditing, verifying, and certifying embedded software for safety- related systems. The PX5 RTOS has achieved functional safety certification to the highest levels of the IEC 61508, IEC 62304, ISO 26262, and EN 50128 functional safety standards, specifically IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class

C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, and EN 50128 SW-SIL 4. Developers using the PX5 RTOS can leverage the RTOS certification artifacts to save time and money during application certification.
