Altreonic's StarFish scalable high reliability controller available for preview

Altreonic is now pre-announcing its new high reliability StarFish product range. Designed as a scalable and customisable range of embedded controllers, it can handle a wide range of real-time embedded applications. The basic building block is the StarFish-42. It has two dual-core 400 MHz 32Bit processors, each running up to 8 threads in the hardware. Supported by the formally developed OpenComRTOS, large networks of processing nodes can be transparently programmed. For this purpose StarFish hosts a wide range of communication and I/O capabilities like 100 Mbit/sec ethernet, CAN and direct links for inter block communication.

Altreonic bundles its realtime tools in OpenComRTOS Designer

Altreonic NV, the Belgium based embedded software solutions provider is pleased to announce the bundling of its formally developed and network centric OpenComRTOS with supporting tools in an integrated tool suite. The suite comprises OpenComRTOS 1.3, OpenVE and OpenTracer.

Functional Safety Engineering Processes: not a burden but a benefit.

Altreonic is speaking at Flanders Drive' seminar on Functional Safety Engineering Processes: not a burden but a benefit.

Eric Verhulst, CEO/CTO of Altreonic will open the seminar by putting the concept of safety engineering in a wider perspective under the title "Zen and the art of safety engineering".


The perfectly safe car could be the one that doesn’t move. Clearly, more will be needed to make such a Panamarenko car acceptable as a real car. What is needed is a total concept of Trustworthiness. The trust that it works as advertised means not only good systems engineering but also that it works as advertised under all circumstances. Albeit an important one, safety is just one of the required system properties.

Altreonic Company Profile

“Solutions for Trustworthy Systems Engineering”

Altreonic NV is an innovative SME focusing on the embedded market with a unified methodology for developing trustworthy solutions. Based on a long experience since the late 1980's, custom engineering services are enabled by in-house developed tools to facilitate an integrated approach in particular for scalable and safety critical embedded software and hardware. The in-house development technology is also made available through a unique Open Technology Licensing model.
The industrial experience is enhanced by a continuous R&D effort, in-house as well as partner in regional as well as European research projects. Recent ones are:

  • OpenComRTOS: development of a novel real-time operating system using formal methods. This is still the core RTOS kernel now developed into VirtuosoNext Designer.
  • ASIL: a Flanders Drive project to develop a common automotive safety engineering workflow.
  • EVOLVE: an EU ITEA project on Evolutionary Verification and Validation of software.
  • CRAFTERS: an EU Artemis on developing novel solutions for many/multicore systems.
  • OPENCOSS: an FP7 IP project focusing on reducing the cost of certification.
  • COMPACT: a regional project on reliability of electronics.
  • NoFIST: a EUROCPS project with Thales on porting VirtuosoNext to a mixed criticality platform.

Altreonic is a regular speaker at international conferences and workshops.

VirtuosoNext Designer

One of the the core product of Altreonic is VirtuosoNext Designer, a unique formally developed network-centric real-time programming environment.
VirtuosoNext Designer supports from small microcontrollers to multicore CPUs and networked distributed heterogeneous systems with a very small code size in a topology independent way. The latest release supports fine-grain space and time partitioning, reducing security and safety risk to a minimum.
Current targets supported are ARM Cortex M3/M4/M5/R4/5R, A9, ARC, Freescale PowerPC, TI C66xx DSP, Leon3, MicroBlaze, XMOS, CoolFlux, Win32 and Linux.
VirtuosoNext runtime code is mostly generated from the  Visual Designer (Visual modeling and simulation environment).
It supporting VirtuosoNext application development from single processor, over multicore to multi-processor heterogeneous target systems. By design it allows to cross develop on a PC, develop a simulator and generate then runtime code without modifying the source code.
Complementary tools are:
GoedelWorks: based on an internet portal, it support safety critical projects from early requirements capturing till final code generation.
EventTracer: a graphical tool to visually display execution schedules on a multiprocessor target.

Open VE


Safe Virtual Machines for C.

Unique is the support for a Safe Virtual Machine that only needs about 3 KBytes. It allows to run binary compiled C code on any processor.


GoedelWorks is the web based project support environment for supporting projects from early requirements and specification capturing till product release with an integrated safety standards knowledge base.


Altreonic is using its own methodology and tools to develop a scalable and modular e-mobility concept code named "KURT". While used as  a research vehicle, the aim is to spin it off as a commercial vehicle. 


Altreonic's team supports customers with design and development services with a focus on low power and smart distributed, fault tolerant control. Other services are: formal development and verification of embedded software;


Altreonic's technology and products are available in a low cost Source code as well as an Open Technology License.
