The issues of Functional Safety for electronic products
Functional safety is the ability of a system to perform the required functions under specified conditions. It mainly consists of four components: reliability, maintainability, availability and safety. The functional safety approach allows products to be placed on the market with controlled risks.
Functional safety, which is becoming increasingly important in system design, must be included in system engineering processes. The properties of functional safety are the result of interdependencies that exist in the system and in the system’s interaction with its environment. For this reason, ACTIA handles functional safety analysis using a global approach.
ACTIA proposes a comprehensive functional safety approach throughout all phases of the product’s life, from design to the end of the product’s life-cycle.
A solid expertise in the safety of electronic architectures
Automotive safety standards
This ACTIA Safety approach guarantees the compliance of the system architecture with automotive safety standards: ISO 61508 / EN13849 for off-roads vehicles and more ISO 26262 for on-road vehicles. Safety intervenes from the design of the electronic architecture of the vehicle, this contributes to the definition of the safety architecture, to achieve a high level of functional safety.
Functional Safety standards, including ISO 26262, are complex. To comply with multiple functional safety standards, ACTIA uses suitable procedures and tools. ACTIA has, in particular, developed its own risk analysis tool. It can calculate the metrics required by ISO 26262, among other things.
ACTIA is able to support customers for Functionnal safety analysis in order to minimise functional risk on the machine while reducing time-to-market and engineering effort to reach Safety compliant application.
