Functional safety has become one of the most critical elements for the development of automotive, industrial and medical software. Therefore, the developers are required to design the system's safety features, and build and implement the appropriate development process to meet the defined safety requirements. They also need to verify the history of their safety development process. eSOL helps developers to conform to the functional safety standards by providing RTOS-based solution.

In April 2015, eT-Kernel Compact real-time operating system (RTOS) has been certified for ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL D) and IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL 4) - the most stringent level defined in these functional safety standards by SGS-TÜV Saar GmbH. eT-Kernel is planned to conform to the IEC 62304 safety standard for medical device software in 2015.

eT-Kernel Compact is a core of all three profiles of eT-Kernel RTOS. The RTOS has been certified to the following functional safety standards;
・ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level D (ASIL D)
・IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL 4)

eSOL provides eT-Kernel Safety Package for the users of eT-Kernel which mainly consists of eT-Kernel and eBinder IDE. The Safety Package includes safety manuals and safety reports for developing eT-Kernel-based systems. This safety document package reduces the cost of conformance to the standards.

The lineup of eT-Kernel Safety Package
  • Automotive Safety Package (ISO 26262-compliant)
  • Industrial Safety Package (IEC 61508-compliant)

eT-Kernel Safety Package

eT-Kernel Safety Package contains evidence and information on measures that users' system conforms to the functional safety standards using eT-Kernel and eBinder. The safety manuals include the information on eT-Kernel’s safety concept, measures to secure and validate that safety concept, and guidelines for use of eT-Kernel from the viewpoint of its impact on system safety. On the other hand, the safety reports contain the results of validation by means defined in the safety manuals.
Optional support services for process building and application development based on the information in the Safety Package is also available.
