Esterel Technologies and SYSGO integrate Products to solve critical Industrial Software Challenges

Esterel Technologies, the leading worldwide provider of model-based development solutions for critical systems and software and SYSGO, a leading supplier of software solutions for the world's most demanding safety and security applications, join efforts to build a seamless environment for model-based design, verification and code generation tools.

“The INTERESTED project has given Esterel Technologies and SYSGO an opportunity to cooperatively create a highly optimized development solution for critical embedded application developers. SYSGO has developed a strong position in the European software space, providing high quality operating systems, firmware, and device drivers”, said Eric Bantegnie, President and CEO of Esterel Technologies.  “With this integrated solution, our mutual industrial software clients can benefit from a comprehensive and ITAR-free, streamlined critical application development environment.”

Esterel Technologies SCADE Suite® and SCADE Display® products will provide out-of-the-box support for SYSGO’s PikeOS operating system.  This will allow critical embedded software developers to efficiently produce control applications using the SCADE Suite development environment. At any point, developers can generate safe, high performance code from SCADE Suite KCG™, SCADE Suite’s certified code generator, and directly deploy on target hardware running PikeOS, taking full advantage of its virtualization and safety concepts. Similarly, software developers creating display applications can use SCADE Display KCG™ to automatically produce safe, deployable, display applications running under PikeOS.  This formal model-based development workflow ensures efficient, high-quality application generation.  Furthermore, with the formal model-based approach, maintenance and communication are greatly enhanced. The integrated solution will be commercially available during the first quarter of 2011.

“This cooperation with Esterel is a natural move for us”, said Michael Tiedemann, CEO of SYSGO.”We are both providing solutions that help our customers to build safety-critical applications in the sectors of aerospace, defense, transportation and industrial automation. Our products are innovative, technologically advanced, and very complementary. They both contribute to cost and risk reduction in critical projects as many market players can testify.”
  
PikeOS is an innovative RTOS product, providing an embedded systems platform where multiple virtual machines can run simultaneously in a secure environment. The Safe and Secure Virtualization (SSV) technology allows multiple operating system APIs, called “Guest OS”, to run concurrently on one machine, e.g. an ARINC-653 application together with Linux. The code generated by SCADE Suite KCG™ can run in one or several PikeOS partitions with the appropriate Guest OS depending to the level of certification required. PikeOS supports many different single- and multi-core processor architectures such as x86, PowerPC, MIPS, ARM, SPARC V8/LEON or SH. PikeOS is certifiable to safety standards like DO-178B, IEC 61508 or EN 50128, and is also MILS compliant.
