New ISO 26262 Functional Safety Packages from Microchip Technology

Microchip Technology has announced the release of ISO 26262 functional safety packages for dsPIC33C digital signal controllers (DSCs), PIC18 and AVR microcontrollers (MCUs) that accelerate the development of safety-critical designs targeting ASIL B and ASIL C safety level and certification efforts. The solutions can help designers meet functional safety requirements and certify designs while minimizing cost, risk and development time.

The functional safety packages together with the development tools from Microchip Technology come with the safety documents enabling engineers to develop compliant systems. The company is offering three ISO 26262 functional safety packages for purchase to help customers with different levels of expertise and in different stages of their evaluation and design cycles.

  • The functional safety basic package offers basic resources like the ASIL B Ready certified FMEDA and Safety Manual for customers to get started with the evaluation of target functional safety levels and the design of safety-critical automotive applications.
  • The functional safety starter package offers ASIL B Ready certified FMEDA and Safety Manual, a reference application and ASIL C compliant diagnostic libraries that help designers understand the ISO 26262-compliant development process and the reports that must be generated for compliance.
  • The functional safety full package offers a complete solution for beginners and seasoned experts to simplify the design and certification of safety-critical automotive applications. In addition to the offerings of the starter package, the full package includes certified diagnostic libraries with source code and the associated safety analysis reports for designs targeting up to ASIL C.

The ISO 26262 functional safety ready dsPIC33C DSCs, and PIC18 and AVR MCUs are supported by the TUV SUD-certified MPLAB XC16 and MPLAB XC8 functional safety compilers (SW006022-FS and SW006021-FS), the MPLAB Code Coverage tool (SW006026-COV), MPLAB X IDE, MPLAB development ecosystem debugger/programmers and the safety documentation package to make the tool qualification task easier.
