What does Rapita do?
Rapita Systems develops on-target verification solutions for customers in the avionics and automotive electronics industries. Our tools help to reduce the cost of measuring, optimizing and verifying the timing performance and test effectiveness of their critical real-time embedded systems.
Dr Ian Broster is a founder and Director of Rapita Systems Ltd. He earned his PhD in 2003 at the Real-time Systems group of University of York for work on the timing analysis of real-time...
Here is a selection of Rapita customers from the avionics, automotive electronics and space industries. Their requirements vary, from embedded engineers working on DO-178B/C and ISO 26262 projects where WCET (worst-case execution time) must be determined, to engineers working on DO-178B/C and ISO 26262 projects seeking to establish coverage levels up to MC/DC with the least amount of effort and in the shortest amount of time. All are currently using or have used our tools to reduce the cost of measuring, optimizing and verifying the timing performance and test effectiveness of critical real-time embedded systems.Read More
Rapita Systems takes a keen interest in conferences, presentations, workshops, seminars and exhibitions related to real-time embedded aerospace and automotive electronics systems. Recent activities include presentations on timing analysis, tutorials on testing real-time software, and a workshop bringing partners together to discuss the findings from a ground-breaking EU research project into probabilistic timing analysis of multicore systems.Read More
Rapita Systems has a leading role in research projects which are developing the embedded real-time systems of the future. The projects involve collaborating with European industrial and academic partners who rely on our on-target verification tools to inform the development of aerospace and automotive electronics systems, particularly in the areas of multicore, DO-178B/C and ISO 26262. Funding is provided by the European Union through the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking Programme and the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).Read More
