Microchip Technology ISO 26262 functional safety packages

Wednesday, 01 December, 2021 | Supplied by: Microchip Technology Australia


Safety is a primary concern in automotive applications for ongoing operation and end users’ wellbeing. Microchip Technology’s certified functional safety packages enable engineers to develop their products as per the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. The release of ISO 26262 functional safety packages for the dsPIC33C digital signal controllers (DSCs) and PIC18 and AVR microcontrollers (MCUs) should accelerate the development of safety-critical designs targeting ASIL B and ASIL C safety level and certification efforts.

The complete functional safety ecosystem for dsPIC33C DSCs includes: AEC Q100 Grade 0-qualified functional safety ready dsPIC33C DSCs with dedicated hardware safety features; SGS TÜV Saar-certified ASIL B Ready Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA) report and Functional Safety Manual (FSM); TÜV Rheinland-certified functional safety diagnostic libraries for designs targeting up to ASIL C; a functional safety reference application, showing the steps required to develop compliant designs and the collateral that must be generated for (ASIL B or ASIL C) compliance; and various functional safety analysis reports and certification reports that help to ease compliance and certification.

The complete functional safety ecosystem for PIC18 and AVR MCUs includes: AEC Q100 Grade 1-qualified functional safety ready PIC18-Q84 MCUs with CAN FD and AVR DA MCUs with LIN interfaces, both with hardware support for capacitive touch sensors; SGS TÜV Saar-certified ASIL B Ready FMEDA report and FSM; functional safety diagnostic libraries; and ASIL B Ready certificates and certification reports to help ease compliance and certification.
