Texas Instruments received ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 process certification from TUV SUD for its SafeTI functional safety hardware development process. SafeTI functional safety design packages designed to manage both systematic and random failures, so they can design their functional safety systems. SafeTI is made for safety focused applications in transportation, industrial, medical, railway and any such similar applications.
SafeTI design packages include five key components for functional safety:
Functional safety-enabled semiconductor components developed as safety-standard- compliant items to help enable designers build safe systems with confidence.
Safety documents, tools and software to decrease development and certification time. SafeTI documents include a Safety Manual detailing product safety architecture and recommended usage, Safety Analysis Report including details of safety analysis and Safety Report summarizing compliance to targeted standards.
Complementary embedded processing and analog components work together to help designers meet safety standards.
Quality manufacturing processes to help address systematic failures. The corporate quality process used is ISO 9001 and/or ISO/TS 16949 (including AEC-Q100 for automotive) to enable the customer to deliver robust solutions.
Safety development process certified suitable for development of IEC 61508- and/or ISO 26262-compliant semiconductors by TUV SUD. An assessment report and certificate of compliance is available in English, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.
