Partnering opportunity

A French SME offers a software technology which strongly isolates safety and non-safety critical applications to be executed in a same hardware platform

Summary

French SME specialized in virtualization technology for embedded devices offers ISO-26262 certified solutions to enable consolidation of mixed-critical systems in Automotive, Industrial, edge IoT. This solution reduces the number of hardware components necessary to build increasingly complex systems while preserving the best-in-market execution isolation needed to guarantee security and safety constraints. The company is interested in technical, business and research cooperation agreement.

Partner sought

Industrial partners wishing to integrate, extend and deploy the company technology, in particular in automotive, industrial, IoT edge. Commercial partners wishing to spread the company technology. Academic and industry partners wishing to collaborate in European RIA & IA projects on mixed-critical virtualization, embedded systems, connected cars, 5G, cybersecurity, virtualized hardware-accelerated artificial intelligence, IoT. The company is interested in technical and business cooperation agreement with electronics system integrators in the Automotive, Industrial, edge IoT domains, to deploy its virtualization technology and customize it to specific use cases. As SME experienced with H2020 European research projects, it's also interested in research cooperation in the framework of European programs, such as although not limited to the following H2020 calls for proposals: ICT-13-2019-2020 ICT-15-2019-2020 ICT-20-2019-2020 ICT-24-2019-2020 SU-ICT-02-2020 SC1-DTH-02-2020 EIC-FTI-2018-2020 LC-SC3-SCC-1-2018-2019-2020 H2020-FETHPC-2018-2020

Description

The company is a French fully independent and private software SME created and operating since January 2011, with a workforce of 20 employees. It has an important set of skills in low level programming (boot loaders, firmware, assembly and C software development) and virtualization (hypervisors and operating systems). The company provides state-of-the-art, high performance and power-efficient mixed-criticality virtualization solutions and services for multi-core heterogeneous systems built around open source technologies, which target the consolidation of electronic components in Automotive, Industrial, edge IoT market segments. For instance, to cope with the revolution of the automotive industry, accelerated by Autonomous Driving and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, where its electronic components, based on heterogeneous hardware platforms and an exponentially growing software become a key strategic challenge, car-makers push for electronic components consolidation with mixed-criticality requirements. In this disruptive context, the company offers an highly innovative, with the strongest isolation, scalable and open software stack virtualization solution, where the innovation resides into open source software components easy integration upon a slim proprietary, higher performance, certified virtualization layer, supporting the co-execution of secure mixed-criticality operations, strongly isolated. Similarly, the company solution is of interest in industrial and IoT constrained devices where different level of critical operations running on a real time operating system (OS) and a general purpose OS can be co-executed on a same hardware platform, with clear benefits in terms of reduction of hardware components, space, power consumption, costs. The company searches for partners and system integrators to extend its market footprint. The company is interested in technical and business cooperation agreement with electronics system integrators in the Automotive, Industrial, edge IoT domains, to deploy its virtualization technology and customize it to specific use cases. As SME experienced with H2020 European research projects, it's also interested in research cooperation in the framework of European programs, such as although not limited to the following H2020 calls for proposals: ICT-13-2019-2020 ICT-15-2019-2020 ICT-20-2019-2020 ICT-24-2019-2020 SU-ICT-02-2020 SC1-DTH-02-2020 EIC-FTI-2018-2020 LC-SC3-SCC-1-2018-2019-2020 H2020-FETHPC-2018-2020

Advantages and innovations

A unique and essential differential aspect of the company virtualization solution for mixed-critical systems, when compared to other solutions, consists in the capability to ensure the strongest possible isolation of the safety critical part of the system, thus preventing intrusive attacks through non-critical applications; it implements safe test and safe state features and the support of power management standards. Moreover, its architecture allows for seamless adaptation and scalability to increasingly complex use cases. To sum up, the innovative architecture of the company mixed-critical virtualization solution gives the following essential advantages and benefits: 1) Best in the market isolation of critical applications, which: - prevents security attacks - guarantees safety operations 2) An highly scalable and open architecture, which translates into: - Easy software re-use - Preventing vendor lock-in - Reduced costs - Easier path to innovation

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
