SAFERTOSR from WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems Extends Support to the AWR2944 & Jacinto TDA4VM from Texas Instruments to Increase Safety Across Automotive Applications

SAFERTOSR, the safety critical real time operating system from WITTENSTEIN
high integrity systems (WHIS), is now available for the new AWR2944 and
Jacinto TDA4VM platforms from Texas Instruments (TI). SAFERTOSR has been
integrated with the C66 and ARM Cortex-R5 cores on both platforms. With
these platforms TI has advanced driver assistance technology to efficiently
navigate turns and more accurately monitor blind spots to safely avoid
collisions.(1) Together with SAFERTOSR, these platforms make a compelling
solution for improved steering systems, advanced driver assistance and
automated driving functions.

SAFERTOSR is a pre-certified safety Real Time Operating System (RTOS) for
embedded processors, delivering superior performance and pre-certified
dependability whilst utilizing minimal resources. SAFERTOSR supports ISO
26262 ASIL D and is delivered with full source code and Design Assurance
Pack (DAP) tailored specifically for the customer processor/compiler
combination. SAFERTOSR is widely used across the automotive sector, popular
due to its impressive safety credentials as well as the upgrade path from
FreeRTOS. Developers can prototype designs for free using FreeRTOS and
upgrade to SAFERTOSR at the start of formal development.

SAFERTOSR support for TI platforms has extended to the AWR2944 and the
Jacinto TDA4VM, focusing on the C66 and ARM Cortex-R5 cores on each
platform. The 77-GHz AWR2944 radar sensor can help automakers meet safety
regulations and is the ideal solution for low power, self-monitored,
ultra-accurate radar systems in the automotive space. The Jacinto TDA4VM
provides high performance compute for both traditional and deep learning
algorithms at industry leading power/performance ratios. It also has a high
level of system integration to enable scalability and lower costs for
advanced automotive platforms. WHIS engineers have been working closely with
TI, integrating SAFERTOSR with these new platforms to optimise performance.
30 Day evaluations of SAFERTOSR are available for the C66 and ARM Cortex-R5
cores on both platforms, contact us today to book yours at

“We have a long and positive relationship with TI and are pleased to be able
support their technology with SAFERTOSR,” said Andrew Longhurst, Managing
Director for WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems. “Safety is key in the
automotive sector and with this new solution our customers can continue to
increase vehicle safety to safely avoid collisions.”

WHIS engineers have been working with TI designs for over a decade. WHIS are
hugely experienced in porting their RTOS products to and optimising for TI
processors, meaning that SAFERTOSR can provide the high-performance
customers expect from top specification TI boards. For your 30-day
