Clear SOUP and COTS Software for Medical Device Development Download White Paper 366Ko

In many industries, manufacturers have reduced development times by using COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) software and hardware. Pressures to bring new, feature-rich products to market quickly affect medical device manufacturers as much as anyone, but the industry may be reluctant to follow suit. This is due to concerns that COTS implies SOUP (software of uncertain provenance) may compromise device safety and pre-market approval by the FDA and other regulatory agencies. While we should exercise diligence and caution when considering COTS software, COTS software may be perfectly acceptable, given stringent selection criteria and validation of the completed systems and devices

This month, Altium Ltd is offering EETimes Europe's readers the chance to win one TASKING VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M Premium Edition, normally licensed for 2.395 Euros, for ultra-rapid prototyping and code development around ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers.

The VX-toolset for ARM is the first TASKING compiler suite to receive the Software Platform technology, which is seamlessly integrated into the toolset's Eclipse based IDE. The complete offering also includes a C/C++ compiler, simulator and hardware debugger, and a wide collection of frequently used middleware components, such as TCP/IP, USB, CAN, web server, graphical user-interface, and an RTOS. At the cost of a traditional development toolset the developer gets everything needed to build an application much faster than is possible with other compiler suites and additional third party middleware components.
