Functional Safety / ISO 26262 Support

Neutron Controls can guide your AURIX™ product development through all parts of the ISO 26262 standard, including:

  • Integrating Safety Elements out of Context (SEooC) = AURIX™ into your design
  • Hazard analysis and risk assessment review
  • Automated verification, testing and fault-insertion
  • Functional safety management, as per ISO 26262 part 2
  • Functional safety concept definition and review
  • Technical safety concept derivation
  • Optimized workflows adapted to individual development processes
  • Software development – software architecture definition and partitioning, alarms and reactions of the AURIX™ Safety Management Unit (SMU), linking safety requirements to code, unit software testing

ISO 26262:2018

The second version of the ISO 26262 standard has recently been released, which now includes the following vehicle types:  commercial vehicles, trucks, buses and even motorcycles.  If you are new to the ISO 26262 standard, choose Neutron Controls to make your systems compliant.

At this level of service we provide partial to full service design solutions, manufacturing paths and project management.
