Building a safe and secure embedded world

Achieving functional safety

With Hercules safetyMCUs

TI Hercules Safety MCUs

Services for TI Hercules Safety microcontrollers

The MCUs of Texas Instruments' Hercules family are based on the high performance ARM® Cortex®-R CPU and offer integrated diagnostic features in hardware to directly support the development of IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 functional safety applications. In close cooperation with TI Hitex has created a starter kit that allows direct access and testing of the comprehesive safety features. More details can be found here.

Consulting & Training

Hitex provides Hercules start-up assistance as well as training and
consultancy for tools, middleware, functional safety and security. We can also
assist with achieving certification and prototype and system production.

- Consulting and Engineering
- Cortex Tools (compiler, evaluation boards, adapters etc.)
- Middleware (RTOS, file systems, comunication stacks)
- Software quality and testing
- Security
- Certification requirements


With a vast array of real-world experience gained from numerous customer projects, the engineering team at Hitex can either take on the whole project, including both software and hardware, or just parts of the project to speed up delivery of your project or application.
