As industry standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require more sophisticated functional safety concepts, real-time control of safety critical applications increases in complexity.
The Freescale SafeAssure functional safety program is designed to help you simplify the process of achieving system compliance with functional safety standards in the automotive and industrial markets.
Freescale's SafeAssure solutions reduce the time required to develop safety systems that comply with the International Standards Organization (ISO) 26262 and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61508 standard.
The Freescale SafeAssure program supports the most stringent Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) to help developers more easily attain system compliance. Whether your need is to attain ASIL-A to D or SIL- 1 to 4 system compliance, the SafeAssure program identifies products that are targeted for use in the effective implementation of functional safety technologies.
