Solid Sands and SYSGO deepen Partnership to help Customers in Safety-critical Projects

Solid Sands, the European leading provider of compiler and library testing and validation from the Netherlands, and SYSGO, Europe’s No 1 provider of real-time operating systems (RTOS) with mixed criticality for embedded applications, have announced further developments in their four-year partnership.

Since 2018, the two companies have been working closely together in various certification projects for automotive and railway applications with the need for compiler validation, code qualification and high safety certification requirements, such as ISO 26262 ASIL B or EN 50657 SIL 2. SYSGO’s RTOS PikeOS is compliant with these safety standards and has also been deployed within various high critical communication infrastructures.

Solid Sands provides its SuperTest Compiler Test and Validation Suite as well as their SuperGuard C Library Safety Qualification Suite. SYSGO uses SuperTest for compiler and library validation in the PikeOS ecosystem. By starting early with the qualification process, the effort of certification is substantially reduced.

The customer benefits from SYSGO’s extended capabilities on its supported and qualified GCC compiler for safety critical projects in combination with C/C++ standard libraries. Solid Sands’ technologies play a key role in achieving standard-compliant certification and qualification with high efficiency. The partnership helps customers in safety critical systems to achieve the highest certification standards in Automotive ISO 26262 ASIL B, Railway EN 50128 or EN 50657 level SIL 2, and the generic Functional Safety IEC 61508 norm.

Marcel Beemster, Founder and CTO of Solid Sands, says: “We’re excited about the latest enhancements of SYSGO’s and Solid Sands’ products. The ongoing collaboration ensures Solid Sands can provide the best qualification and test experience during test and validation period of a development cycle.”

Sven Nordhoff from SYSGO adds: ”It’s great to see the long-standing partnership with Solid Sands growing, supported by the PikeOS C and C++ code capabilities and the compiler testing, validation and safety services.”
