Texas Instruments

Texas Instruments Incorporated (Nasdaq: TXN) is a globalit semiconductor company. We design, manufacture, test and sell analog and integrated semiconductors for industrial, automotive, consumer electronics, communications and enterprise systems applications. We are passionate about making electronics affordable using semiconductor technology, thereby making the world a better place. We live this attitude every day: With each innovation cycle, our technology becomes even more space-saving, efficient, reliable and affordable, so that semiconductors can be used everywhere in electronics. This is what we mean by technical progress, and this is how we have been working for decades. Learn more at  TI.com.

PHYTEC’s collaboration with Texas Instruments extends back to 1995 and the miniMODUL-DSPC5x. This SOM was populated with a TMS320C5x Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip. This device evolved into the DaVinci family, which crossed the DSP with an ARM9 core, and subsequently branched into the Sitara™ family of processors based on Arm® Cortex-A cores. Current phyCORE SOMs support Sitara AM335x, AM57xx, AM64xx and AM62xx devices.

emlix GmbH

emlix offers industrial grade Linux for the digitization and secure networking of devices, machines and plants over the entire product lifecycle.

For more than 20 years, emlix has been transferring system knowledge, innovations from the open source world, and market expertise into the products of over 350 customers. Product-specific software platforms from emlix are successfully used millions of times worldwide.

emlix core competence is the conception, qualification, and development of hardware-related product features such as boot time optimization, real-time and virtualization solutions, security and container concepts, as well as use-case specific recovery and over-the-air (OTA) update concepts.

Customers can rely on development tools and processes especially designed for industrial requirements. In addition, emlix offers reliable lifecycle support. The range of services includes process-compliant maintenance and guarantee of IT security as well as functional safety over the entire product lifecycle.

Since 2016, emlix has been working as a permanent partner with PHYTEC Messtechnik GmbH on a wide range of projects. For example, the two friendly companies developed a new generation of measuring devices for use in clinical dosimetry as part of a customer order. The challenge in development projects in the medical field lies increasingly in the constantly growing requirements for medical device software, regulated by IEC 62304, MDR (Medical Device Regulation) and FDA (Food and Drug Amninistration).

Accordingly, the objective was to develop the underlying embedded Linux system in compliance with those standards and to achieve a correspondingly high level of security throughout the entire product life cycle. For the operation and maintenance phase, this means the need for continuous maintenance monitoring as well as CVE-based security monitoring as part of proactive and systematic monitoring including evaluation of the findings. Thanks to the close cooperation between Phytec and emlix, the high requirements could be met and the project successfully carried out.
