FAT–compatible file system gains certifications for white-goods, connected-device uses

August 09, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Express Logic has gained additional certification for its industrial-grade FileX high-performance FAT-compatible file management system, achieving compliance with UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, UL 60335-1 Annex R, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and UL 1998 safety standards for software in programmable components.

The compliance with UL/IEC 60730, UL/IEC 60335, and UL 1998 builds on FileX’s current safety certification prominence. FileX has already achieved the highest level of pre-certification for industrial safety’s IEC 61508 SIL 4, medical’s IEC 62304 Class C, automotive’s ISO 26262 ASIL D, and rail transportation’s EN 50128 SW-SIL 4 standards—pre-certification essential for use in safety-critical devices.

 

Now, the company says, with UL/IEC 60730, UL/IEC 60335, and UL 1998 certifications, developers can use FileX to manage and store relevant data for connected appliances and white goods, such as washing machines, dishwashers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, and ovens.

 

UL is a global, independent safety-science company with more than a century of expertise in innovating safety solutions and about 22 billion products bearing its compliance mark.

Express Logic offers a portfolio of industrial-grade, pre-certified RTOS and middleware solutions for safety-critical IoT devices.

 

According to William E. Lamie, CEO of Express Logic, “One of the biggest challenges [of the IoT, for embedded developers] is the demand for ever-more stringent compliance with global safety standards. Now, with the pre-certification of FileX for such standards, embedded developers have a durable, industrial-grade FAT-compatible file management system that makes it easier for them to deliver world-class solutions into those markets.”

 

The FileX FAT-compatible file system expands the current suite of Express Logic’s pre-certified software solutions, which include ThreadX, Express Logic’s RTOS, and NetX Duo, the company’s IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack. All products are industrial grade and compliant with the highest level of TüV IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, and EN 50128 SW-SIL 4 and UL, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, UL 60335-1 Annex R, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and UL 1998 certification standards.

 

FileX is available at license prices starting at $12,500. UL and TÜV certifications are available each with licenses starting at $25,000.
