ERIKA Enterprise is an open-source and royalty-free OSEK/VDX Kernel. This RTOS includes also RT-Druid, which is a development environment distributed as a set of Eclipse plugins.
ERIKA Enterprise implements various conformance classes, including the standard OSEK/VDXconformance classes BCC1, BCC2, ECC1, ECC2, CCCA, CCCB. Moreover, ERIKA provides other custom conformance classes named FP (Fixed priority), EDF (Earliest deadline first scheduling), and FRSH (an implementation of resource reservation protocols).
Thanks to the collaboration with the Tool & Methodologies team of Magneti Marelli Powertrain & Electronics, the automotive kernel (BCC1, BCC2, ECC1, ECC2, multicore, memory protection and kernel fixed priority with Diab 5.5.1 compiler) is MISRA C 2004 compliant using FlexeLint 9.00h under the configuration suggested by Magneti Marelli.
In August 2012 ERIKA Enterprise received officially the OSEK/VDX Certification (see below).
ERIKA Enterprise started in year 2000 with the aim to support multicore devices for the Automotive markets. The main milestones are:
