Functional Safety

Neutron Controls can support your ISO 26262 development in the following ways:

Technical Consulting

Automated Testing / HIL Simulation Platforms

  • Integrating Safety Elements out of Context
    (SEooC = AURIX™) into new designs
  • Safety plan definition for AURIX systems
  • Functional safety management guidance, as per ISO 26262 part 2
  • Optimized workflows adapted to individual development processes
  • Software development – software architecture definition and partitioning, linking safety requirements to code, unit software testing
  • AURIX™ Safety Management Unit (SMU) configuration and alarm g
  • AURIX™ Integration with Power-Management ICs (e.g. TLF35584)

Accelerate your software development and testing with a bespoke hardware-in-the-loop simulator using REDLINE carrier board as both the control target and also the plant model, as shown in the motor control example below.  In addition, bespoke hardware interfaces can be easily added for actuator test rigs, CAN simulation tools or other hardware devices.
