SYSGO and Kontron: SAFe-VX

Turnkey-Ready Development Platform

Partitioning critical and non-critical application code in independent time and memory spaces.

SYSGO and Kontron present SAFe-VX, a turnkey-ready developing suite, providing fully representative hardware and a complete toolchain for software development, which is integrated into the Eclipse-based IDE CODEO. The integrated development environment provides all the components that software engineers need to develop embedded applications and includes comprehensive tools to realize embedded projects in a time-saving and cost-efficient way.

SAFe-VX Platform Architecture

Kontron Safe-Vx Hardware Architecture

Hardware Architecture

The base configuration is redundant, including three VPX processor modules, interconnected by a Gigabit Ethernet switch module through a backplane. SAFe-VX does not present any single point of failure.

SAFe-VX Software Architecture

Software Architecture

PikeOS hypervisor, certified hard RTOS, partitioning critical and non-critical application code in independent time and memory spaces.


Jointly with our hardware partner Kontron we offer:

Flexible & Modular VPX-based architecture, state-of-the-art with modern processors

A development platform for Safety-critical applications using PikeOS as RTOS & Hypervisor

Ideal to accomodate Safety and Non-Safety tasks, without compromising segregation and partitioning

Fast transition from development to deployment, reducing time-to-market and total cost of ownership

Wayside or rolling stock applications: Large operating T Range, shock & vibrations, EMC/ EMI environments

Long term support for program operations up to 30 years

About Kontron

The company was established in 1991 and looks back on a history of impressive growth. In 1993 they developed their first fully integrated embedded computer product, and they have been Germany's leading supplier of embedded computer technology since 1995. The move into the foreign markets was funded by a financial investor. In 1997, Kontron also became the No 1 in Europe. Today, they are world market leader and their technologies have repeatedly set new standards; the PISA concept, the ETX and the DIMM PC format are globally recognized ECT (Embedded Computer Technology) standards today.
