Synopsis: Off-the-Shelf (OTS) software can be used to decrease time-to-market and increase the reliability and safety of medical devices if the right technology is selected. The wrong choice of key technologies can cripple your ability to create strong arguments about the safety of your device, ultimately endangering your ability to get through approval and make it to market at all. We’ll examine several different OTS technologies and identify fundamental properties of each that can be leveraged in the creation of an assurance case including:
  • Operating Systems
  • Development Tools
  • Virtualization Technology

Green Hills Software will be demonstrating the latest innovations in software technologies for building safe, reliable medical devices, based on its Platform for Medical Devices.

  • Platform for Medical Devices – incorporates the safety-certified INTEGRITY® real-time operating system, a broad range of middleware including secure guest OS virtualization, communications protocols and graphics, as well as an integrated tool suite that addresses software developers' needs throughout the software development process. INTEGRITY is available with complete software lifecycle data and supporting evidence for use during the FDA approval process, and has been used in Class II and Class III devices. This platform will be demonstrated on the latest Texas Instruments Zoom™ OMAP35x development kit.
