Real-time operating systems (RTOS) development

Real-time operating systems – the heart of device software

When developing a medical device, the RTOS must be selected at the outset. This is critical for the rest of the process. From functionalities to required pre-certifications, it is important to clarify a range of questions and gain a concrete overall picture of the project.

The systems available on the market must be analyzed in order to make the right decision. From open source RTOS to professional and developed commercial systems, there is a wide range of options.

Thanks to our extensive project expertise built up over many years, we can develop real-time applications on a targeted basis. As an ISO 13485- and ISO 9001-certified manufacturer, we operate in a wide range of hardware environments, from microprocessors to custom hardware using common communication systems. We have implemented projects with various RTOS in this respect.

This, combined with our experience in handling safety-critical medical applications up to Safety Class C (IEC 62304), makes us a strong, reliable partner for developing and advising on customized solutions. To top it all, we also create specifications at all levels of the development process.
