Mercury’s BuiltSAFE™ Graphics Suite (GS) enables application developers to create content-rich embedded graphics applications and user interfaces for mission and safety-critical systems deployed in aerospace, defense, automotive and industrial environments. Our graphics drivers are certifiable to the highest levels of software criticality recognized by the FAA, EASA, Transport Canada and JAA. Despite being deployed mainly in commercial and military aircraft, these libraries are designed for use in any embedded computing system where the strictest levels of reliability are mandated by a regulatory agency, including FDA 501(k) devices.

The BuiltSAFE Graphics Suite includes solutions with and without GPU acceleration. The BuiltSAFE GS OpenGL Library provides safety certifiable hardware-accelerated graphics libraries for standalone GPUs and GPU cores embedded in CPU devices.  The BuiltSAFE GS Multi-Core Renderer delivers scalable, high-performance graphics without the need for a GPU by using the multiple CPU cores and vector processing capabilities found on modern CPU devices. Together, these graphics solutions support the full spectrum of graphics performance requirements, from simple 2D instrument clusters to sophisticated real-time 3D synthetic vision scene generation.

The modular architecture of the BuiltSAFE Graphics Suite enables ease of portability between systems with minimal software changes, significantly reducing the time and cost of customization and certification. Mercury offers a variety of products including driver binary, binary plus source code, diagnostic tools and the full set of artifacts required for certification of the driver in its target environment. This portfolio of embedded graphics libraries supports a variety of industry standard API’s including Open GL ES 1.x, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenGL SC.

Our close ties with hardware partners such as AMD, Intel, NXP, and Texas Instruments, as well as all the major RTOS vendors, allow us to accommodate the next generation of product lines long before they are introduced to market.
