Validation Suites and Kits for
Micrium's µC/OS-II & µC/OS-III (RTOS)
Certification Evidence for use in Avionics, Medical, Industrial Control and Transportation
Validated Software Corporation (VSC) released the first
Validation Suite for Micriµm’s µC/OS real-time operating system
(RTOS) in 1999. Since that time, many more development teams
have enjoyed the benefits brought by the combination of
real-time micro-kernel and Validation Suite. Validation Suites
contain all software development life-cycle documents, test
results and essential evidence demonstrating that the µC/OS-II
or µC/OS-III kernel embedded in your hardware meets the strict
standards set forth by international safety-critical standards.
With its tiny footprint and efficient operation, the scale-able kernel consumes few resources yet provides a powerful set of services that reduce risk, tame complexity, and accelerate software schedules. When µC/OS is used in critical avionics applications, Validation Suites offer a similar set of benefits to those concerned with ensuring that the software system was developed and maintained in accordance with standards.
Incorporating the best features offered by their “off-the-shelf” nature. Ninety percent of the µC/OS Validation Suite is “pre-existing” and has been used for “previously certified” software. Like the µC/OS real-time operating system, Validation Suites have a proven record of accomplishment across a wide variety of microprocessors, digital signal processors and toolsets.
They also offer many of the benefits of a custom solution. Validation Suites use run for credit results from your choice of hardware target and the tools you select for the project. Validation Suites use robust unit-testing, integration testing and code coverage testing techniques that allow you to use all µC/OS APIs and Services across a wide range of configurations without the need for retest.
Validation Suites, as well as the rest of VSC’s products and services focus on supporting the way you and your team work. They provide more than a set of certification documents, test results and software. Validation Suites provide you with options and flexibility. You choose the processor, AND compiler, AND development tools AND assurance level, AND delivery date. Then VSC does the rest. In sixty days or less and at a fraction of the cost of comparable in-house and commercial alternatives, VSC will deliver your µC/OS Validation Suites for virtually any 32 and 64-bit microprocessor, DSP, or soft-core processor.
