Launched in 2011, Krono-Safe automates critical real-time application development, guaranteeing a high level of safety without sacrificing performance. Its customer portfolio includes Alstom, Delphi, Safran, and Schneider Electric.
With its automated programming software Asterios, Krono-Safe is the only company on the market offering automated development of critical real-time embedded applications. The software delivers a shorter design cycle, a high level of performance, and predictable and reproducible application behavior. The automated mechanisms used are safe by construction. In addition, Asterios enables existing applications to be ported to manycore architectures. It offers a number of additional features, including the hardware platform’s rate of power consumption in various configurations.
With six patents, this technology is the result of fifteen years of CEA R&D work on operating safety in the nuclear and automotive industries. The technology is also garnering interest from the avionics, industrial command-control, and space and defense industries.
