Library Qkit - ISO26262 Qualification
ASIL-D Qualification of C/C++ Libraries
The ISO 26262 standard requires for ASIL-D the qualification of tools (see chapter 8.11) and a qualification of software components like C/C++ libraries of a compiler (see chapter 8.12).

The ISO 26262 standards defines a software tool (see definition I-1.124) e.g. compiler as computer program used in the development. HighTec performs the tool qualification (see ISO26262 ASIL-D Qkit) with a TUV certified methodology (provided by Validas AG) which is compliant to chapter 8-11. 

The requirements of the qualification of libraries e.g. C/C++ (software components) differ compared to the qualification of tools. The following graphic illustrates the main differences of requirements.
Library Qualification Kit
The following graphic illustrates the basic work-flow of the certification process.
Library Certification Kit
The Library Qkit enables users to perform standard compliant qualification in a simple and easy way, supporting qualification up to ISO26262 ASIL D.

Library Qkit is available for multiple architectures, such as TriCore/Aurix, ARM and Power Architecture. To request more detailed information about Library Qkit, please contact us.

PXROS - Real-time OS for TriCore and AURIX
PXROS-HR is SIL3 and ASIL D Safety Approved

  • PXROS-HR is an object oriented real-time operating-system (RTOS) with a very modern micro-kernel and outstanding features, especially suited for deployment on advanced multi-core MCUs. The latest version of PXROS-HR improves the concepts of encapsulation and robustness by using fine granular hardware protection mechanisms (MPU), available in modern micro-controllers like the AURIX.
  • The PXROS-HR operating-system for TriCore has been officially safety approved. HighTec received the certificate confirming the fitness of PXROS-HR for safety-related applications up to SIL 3 (IEC61508) and ASIL D (ISO 26262).
  • PXROS-HR is developed with the HighTec C/C++ compiler for TriCore/AURIX and best suited for industrial applications, as well as automotive applications where safety is key. The RTOS integrates with Infineon's MCAL and SafeTlib software frameworks, while being non-AUTOSAR based and highly optimized for the TriCore architecture, providing multi-core support for the AURIX family.

Rust Development Platform for Infineon AURIX
First ISO 26262 ASIL D Qualified AURIX Rust Compiler
Being fully committed to safety and innovation, HighTec now offers the first ISO 26262 ASIL D qualified Rust Compiler Development Platform for Infineon AURIX. This marks a significant industry milestone towards increased security, safety and efficiency in automotive software development.

In the rapidly evolving Software-Defined Vehicles (SDVs), security, complexity, and cost-effectiveness present significant challenges, moving the industry towards secure, safer and more efficient programming solutions. Rust is a memory safe programming language that provides major advantages over traditional languages by minimizing security risks, shortening development cycles and reducing costs.

The HighTec Rust Compiler, tailored for AURIX TC3x and TC4x microcontrollers, leverages the advanced open-source LLVM technology to deliver the full range of Rust language features, including memory safety, concurrency, and interoperability, for applications with strict requirements regarding safety, security, high-performance, and rapid deployment.
HighTec's pioneering step towards the Rust compiler qualification, that goes beyond language conformity, complements its successful C/C++ compiler for Infineon AURIX microcontrollers, which is also ASIL D qualified according to ISO 26262.

Both compilers are built on the cutting-edge LLVM open-source technology. This unified toolchain solution allows seamless integration of newly developed Rust code with legacy C/C++ code or a so-called hybrid development approach. Therefore, software developers e.g. can identify critical functions in terms of security, rewrite that part in Rust and integrate it in their overall system.
