“We selected Micrium because we wanted a reliable and certified real time operating system to serve as one of the foundational components for our next generation of products. We evaluated several products and Micrium provided all of the features we needed and was best suited to our development environment.
Micrium has been outstanding to work with; we have a number of products using software from different vendors and Micrium is certainly a gold standard to measure the others against.”
Biolase Inc. is a medical device company that develops, manufactures, markets, and sells laser systems in dentistry and medicine. Their dental laser systems are minimally invasive, and feature ergonomic dersign and a touch-screen interface.
"We are currently using Micrium µC/OS-II with USB Host, USB Device, and File System software stacks, as well as uC/Probe for testing and development support," says Richard Jackson, Software Engineering Manager at Biolase. "We chose µC/OS-II because a safety critical certified OS was highly desirable for our needs as it would both guarantee stability of the platform and reduce our internal validation efforts."
"We achieved faster development time, reduced effort in developing software stacks and were able to concentrate on the application logic and algorithms for our system. We also substantially reduced our overall validation efforts by choosing a certified operating system."
