Safety library eases certification

November 30, 2010 | Christoph Hammerschmidt | 222901244
Safety library eases certification For safety-critical applications in compliance with SIL (IEC 61508) or ASIL (ISO 26262) Software tool vendor Hitex offers the safety library SafeTcore for Infineon's TriCore microcontrollers frequently used in automotive and industrial motor controls.

The SafeTcore library is based on Infineon's PRO-SIL security concept. The concept incorporates hardware and software aspects including the required safety documentation. The library was generated by a development process according to the standard.

By using a safety monitor independent from the microcontroller (CIC61508) required CPU's and peripherals' self test functions can be monitored.

Based on the long-experience in safety-critical microcontroller applications, Hitex not only offers support for the SafeTcore library's utilization but also for integration into customer devices, execution of required tests including test documentation as well as achieving certification. Thus, SafeTcore along with the Hitex support provides a fast and efficient way to achieve SIL or ASIL certification.
