Transforming Embedded Systems with SYSGO and Microchip

The global RISC-V ecosystem is expanding rapidly, especially in the US and China, with nearly four thousand members. This growth offers a diverse range of technology partners and ensures robust support and ongoing innovation. Free from proprietary lock-ins, companies can license from multiple vendors, granting greater design flexibility while maintaining software and ecosystem compatibility.

In our webcast with SYSGO and Microchip you learn how to set up and build SYSGO’s hard RTOS and Hypervisor, PikeOS, on the PolarFire SoC Icicle Kit, based on a RISC-V 64-bit SoC. PikeOS enables the creation of mixed-criticality systems, adhering to the highest safety and security standards. We’ll walk you through the board support package and demonstrate how the development environment facilitates installation and the creation of a simple demo project.

Why choose PikeOS?

SYSGO’s PikeOS offers numerous benefits, helping you achieve your company’s goals:

  • Re-use of Legacy Code: Safely integrate legacy code within a safety-critical environment, separated by the PikeOS hypervisor
  • Cost Efficiency: Utilize low-cost open-source code (drivers, connectivity, libraries) and Linux or Android in a safety-critical context
  • Guest OS Integration: Mix various guest OS like ARINC 653, POSIX, AUTOSAR, Linux and Windows in a certification context, supporting mixed criticality
  • Hardware Cost Savings: Consolidate multiple functions into one hardware platform, efficiently using modern multi-core processors
  • Certification Efficiency: Save time, effort, and costs with commercial off-the-shelf PikeOS certification kits and a MILS architecture
  • Long-term Support: Benefit from SYSGO’s long-term support and certification services, ensuring software longevity and reliability
