Assumed system design
The illustration shows the typical system design when COQOS is used on the left-hand side. The general approach is to integrate different functions over a µOS – with a separation microkernel as its core – which ensures safe separation between the different functions.
This is the same approach as for IMA based systems; a system architecture overview compatible with IMA is depicted in the right-hand side of the illustration.
