Notable RTOS Adds Arm Architecture For FACE 3.0 Certifications

Green Hills Software has completed the certification of conformance for its INTEGRITY-178 Time-Variant Unified Multi Processing (tuMP) RTOS for Arm architectures to the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard edition 3.0. The INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS was previously certified for both Intel® and Power Architecture®, therefore all three major processor architectures used for security- and safety-critical applications are now certified. All certifications cover both the Safety Base and Security profiles and include verification for C, C++ and Ada support for both profiles. Even though version 3.0 of the FACE Technical Standard was published almost 1.5 years ago (November 2017), the INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS remains the only software certified conformant to the latest revision.

Delivering FACE 3.0 conformance certification for Arm architecture, the INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS provides architects of airborne systems the option to use a processor family with performance that rivals Intel architecture performance but with the increased determinism and reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) that results from Arm’s reduced instruction set computing (RISC) design.
