SCARLETT - The Next Generation of IMA

The concept of Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) was invented in the early '90s to overcome the vast number of single electronic devices in the avionics. PikeOS Safe and Secure Virtualization was introduced in 2005 with a concept of integration of multiple software APIs on a single hardware platform. Today, both concepts build the foundation for a revolutionary new approach in the avionics.

Five years of PikeOS

Monolithic operating systems are out of date. The days of changeless decisions are gone, never to return. Opening new options for flexible embedded systems design, we launched PikeOS in 2005. After five years of presence on the market, PikeOS has prevailed for use in diverse embedded systems, even in the avionics, an occasion to celebrate five years of success.

IMA and PikeOS for Safety

The avionics industry is probably the most challenging domain for safe systems, with aircrafts full of electronic devices, redundant hardware, and kilometers of cables form diverse suppliers. With Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) aircraft manufacturers have produced a new concept for recent generations of commercial aircrafts which puts high demands on the underlaying operating system to build safe and cost efficient electronic systems. Demands that can be fulfilled by PikeOS.

Born for virtualization

Certifying software is a complex process that includes to review software design, coding, validation and verification. Certification costs are very much related to the number of lines of code and the modularity of the software. Certification of monolithic software is complex and expensive. More promising is the use of a modular platform. That's where we started our considerations when we designed PikeOS Safe & Secure Virtualization as an operating system to be used in safety- and security-critical environments. As the most flexible and smallest platform we chose a micro kernel approach for PikeOS. Including additional system software it comprises less than 10K lines of code in total. The micro kernel is equipped with a modular Architecture and Platform Support Packages (ASP and PSP). The system software allows to build multiple partitions for divers OSs, APIs, and RTE. As a result PikeOS has become a small and modular platform - perfect for certification.

How can we reduce our development costs?

Consolidation of hardware and software has made good progress in the IT world and led to substantial cost reductions. Embedded systems are far away from consolidation. How can we achieve similar productivity gains for embedded systems? Which technology gives us flexibility for the long run? How can we guarantee security and safety in one go? And how must we build our devices to be resource and energy efficient? There is one answer to all these questions.
