ThreadX Gets Safety Certification

San Diego-based Express Logic just received IEC 61508 and IEC 62304 certification for its ThreadX operating system. These two standards cover the “functional safety of electrical, electronic, and programmable electronic safety-related systems.” The nice part is, the certification is for bone-standard ThreadX; there is no special “safety-certified” version of the RTOS. Express Logic says it won’t even charge more, now that it’s certified.
