Green Hills has received certificates from both TÜV NORD and exida, making the MULTI IDE the only commercially available toolchain certified to satisfy both SIL 4 (Safety Integrity Level) and ASIL D (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) tool qualification requirements.
Developers can use the safety and certification experience and leverage certified tools to build safety systems up to SIL 4 and ASIL D. Green Hills has invested significant time and effort to meet the new tool qualification requirements included in the latest releases of these functional safety standards.
“Green Hills Software continues to lead the embedded software community in delivery of safety-certified products coupled with unparalleled safety expertise,” said Dan O’Dowd, founder and chief executive officer of Green Hills Software. “Our deep working knowledge of these standards, our proven design and development practices, and our collaborative engagement with the certification bodies were key to the successful certification that confirms our support tools qualification and complements our existing INTEGRITY real-time operating system certified offerings.”
“Adherence to the latest functional safety standards and end customer product certifications are a growing requirement globally across a broad set of markets, including automotive, industrial and railway,” said Gerhard Rieger, branch manager, TÜV NORD Systems GmbH & Co. KG. “Our certification efforts and end results with Green Hills Software for their MULTI tools provide these markets with the industry’s first commercial off-the-shelf offering addressing the challenging requirements for a broad set of target microprocessors – thereby extending Green Hills Software’s leadership in delivering products and expertise in the functional safety marketplace.”
“The rising complexity of embedded software is requiring many markets and government agencies to demand product certification to proven standards for functional safety,” said Dr. William M. Goble, president of exida. “To address this demand, Green Hills Software has worked together with exida to complete the first ever commercially available tools certification for its MULTI tools offering, thereby significantly reducing the time and cost for end customers to certify their product offerings.”
The availability of qualified MULTI tools delivers customers significant product development cost savings by lowering cost and time-to-certification and so reducing product time-to-market, and reducing certification maintenance after product release. This enables customers to assign their critical internal resources to unique product value-added and development instead of ancillary tools efforts.
