Customer Added Values


Mixed-Criticality Certification

The companies address multi-level criticality use cases by combining SYSGO's PikeOS mixed-criticality OS with Frontgrade Gaisler's NOEL-V (RISC-V) or LEON (SPARC) SoCs, along with tool solutions. This allows for example data storage on certified file systems or health monitoring for fault detection, isolation and recovery.


Certification Expertise

With expertise in Safety and Security standards, both companies offer certified components and artifacts for Safety and Security compliance, making their solution suitable for space applications.

  • Safety certification up to DO-178C DAL A and ECSS-E-ST-40C / ECSS-Q-ST-80C
  • Common Criteria EAL5+ for Cybersecurity
  • Aligns with ESA needs and ITAR-free (no export restrictions)

Secure Communication

The partnership provides secure certified communication to ground stations, including software updates, essential for aerospace applications.


Advanced Hardware

The joint solution includes low-power, fault-tolerant designs, FPGA and ASIC support, and hardware monitor tools optimized for SPARC/LEON and RISC-V/NOEL-V systems.
