PikeOS: Multiple Certifications, ONE Product

Today every industry is facing the same challenges in building their new equipment: how to guarantee safety, security and software diversity on a multi-core platform and still be cost effective and minimize risks? Cost reduction may be handled in different ways. But the only proven way to reduce costs is to share them. The same approach works for minimizing technical and economical risks.

That’s why PikeOS is getting such a growing appeal among various industry sectors: PikeOS is the only SSV (Safe & Secure Virtualization) RTOS product on the market being certified or certifiable according to major safety and security standards.

In addition, PikeOS has today the largest range of Guest OS (GuestOS and APIs) of the market. It can address a wide scope of sectors ranging from aerospace&defense to medical, from industrial to consumer electronics, and from automotive to railway.
