Esterel Technologies and LynuxWorks have announced their alliance and intention to build a seamless environment for model-based development and deployment of mission and safety-critical applications.
“As we continue to increase our dominant position in model-based development for critical applications, our partnership with LynuxWorks is both a natural and necessary progression to address the growing demands of our customers. LynuxWorks has a special position in the critical embedded software industry and our support for the LynxOS-178 operating system will shorten time-to-certification under DO-178B for our respective clients”, said Eric Bantegnie, President and CEO of Esterel Technologies.
Out of the box, both the Esterel Technologies SCADE family of products and the LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 operating system provide certified software and artifacts that fully satisfy DO-178B level A design assurance objectives. “Our mutual customers, especially those developing flight deck display systems, will immediately see the benefits of reduced certification costs typically associated with DO-178B, Level A design assurance. These customers will be able to reap the economic advantages of a high performance, DO-178B certified operating system and SCADE tools to help ease development and certification of application software”, said Joe Wlad, Director of Certification and Services and FAA DER at LynuxWorks.
From Esterel SCADE Suite, critical embedded control application developers will analyze, design, verify, and automatically generate certifiable applications. For embedded graphics display application developers, such as those developing cockpit displays and control panels, SCADE Display™ will enable the rapid development and generation of certifiable and embeddable critical display applications. Both of these model-based development environments target LynxOS-178 and include certified code generation via Esterel Technologies KCG™, thereby dramatically shortening the time-to-certification for the deployed application.
