Information packages from Microchip ease ISO 26262 applications

Microchip functional safety

“As the level of sophistication and electronics increases in cars, functional safety requirements are becoming much more rigorous in automotive designs,” said Microchip v-p Joe Thomsen. “To help our clients develop safety applications, Microchip has greatly expanded the offering of certified safety documentation and diagnostic self-test libraries, development tools and technical support.”

They cover various dsPIC33C, PIC18 and AVR microcontrollers.

For dsPIC33C:

  • AEC Q100 Grade 0-qualified functional safety ready dsPIC33Cs with dedicated hardware safety features
  • SGS TÜV Saar-certified ASIL B-ready ‘failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis’ (FMEDA) report and functional safety manual (FSM)
  • TÜV Rheinland-certified functional safety diagnostic libraries for designs aiming up to ASIL C
  • A functional safety reference application, showing the steps required to develop compliant designs, and the collateral that must be generated for ASIL B or ASIL C compliance
  • Functional safety analysis reports and certification reports to ease compliance and certification

For PIC18 and AVR:

  • AEC Q100 Grade 1-qualified functional safety ready PIC18-Q84 MCUs with CAN FD interfaces, and AVR DA MCUs with LIN interfaces, both with hardware capacitive touch
  • SGS TÜV Saar-certified ASIL B-ready FMEDA report and FSM
  • Functional safety diagnostic libraries
  • ASIL B-ready certificates and certification reports to ease compliance and certification

Three levels of ISO 26262 functional safety packages are available for purchase:

  • Basic: ASIL B-ready certified FMEDA and safety manual
  • Starter: 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
  • Full: Starter package plus certified diagnostic libraries with source code and associated safety analysis reports for designs up to ASIL C

In addition to the functional safety packages, Microchip offers a TÜV SÜD-certified design tool package for its development ecosystem.

It includes a TÜV SÜD-certified MPLAB XC16 and XC8 functional safety compilers (SW006022-FS and SW006021-FS) with the TÜV SÜD certificate, a functional safety manual for the compiler, along with safety plans and tools classification, and qualification reports for the compiler, MPLAB X IDE (integrated development environment), MPLAB Code Coverage (SW006026-COV) and MPLAB development ecosystem programs.

To add to the processors, Microchip has functional safety-ready CAN FD transceivers, LIN transceivers and voltage supervisors.
