System basis chip and Qorivva MCU families provide scalable approach to simplify development of systems that must comply with ISO 26262
At the Freescale Technology Forum 2012, Freescale Semiconductor announced SafeAssure solutions it said can help automotive designers reduce the complexity and development time required to build functionally safe systems that comply with ISO 26262 and IEC 61508.
The Qorivva MPC574xP 32-bit microcontroller (MCU) and system basis chip (SBC) MC33906/7/8 families help automotive systems meet all Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) up to and including ASIL D. Applications that can benefit include electric power steering, electronic stability control, vehicle dynamic and chassis control, safety domain control, adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection.
Freescale said the Qorivva MPC574xP MCU and MC33906/7/8 SBC families are designed from the ground up in a way that system manufacturers can more easily achieve system compliance with functional safety standards by providing:
• Integrated safety architectures in hardware
• Accompanying safety software
• A comprehensive support infrastructure that helps reduce development time.
