Validated Software Releases DO-178B Validation Suite for InterNiche's ChronOS Operating System

2/4/2003 - Validated Software Corporation, the leader in affordable safety-critical certification packages for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software, released the DO-178B Level A Validation SuiteTM for InterNiche's ChronOSTM real-time operating system. This strategic relationship provides a complete RTOS to customers in the safety, mission-critical and avionics community requiring robust platforms and FAA RTCA DO-178B or EUROCAE ED-12B certification. In addition, Validated and InterNiche are cooperating on a safety compliant TCP/IP stack based on InterNiche's popular NicheStackTM.

"This is a natural fit, where InterNiche brings a robust RTOS and Validated provides all the required artifacts to enable our software to be used in safety-critical systems", states Larry Larder, President and CEO of InterNiche. "Customers can now pick a commercial RTOS required and focus their development teams on value-added development. This is one of the few complete and yet scalable solutions in the industry".

The DO-178B Validation Suite for ChronOS is available now, and contains a complete set of design, requirements, tests suites, code coverage, and traceability documents. All levels of DO-178B and ED-12B are supported, including the most difficult, Level A. Complete information on this avionics specification can be found at and In addition, an introductory FAQ to safety certification can be found at IEC 61508 support will be available in Q2, 2003.
