Reducing Risk And Increasing Efficiency For IEC61508 And ISO26262 Certified Safety Applications

Integrated safe/non-safe functionality is possible in a single device with today’s tools and techniques. Here is a route to achieve IEC/ISO safety certification.


This white paper introduces key dependability aspects for industrial and automotive customers who are designing and developing programmable electronic equipment for safety applications using Xilinx FPGA and SoC devices. The main focus of this white paper is to explain how to create solutions with highly integrated, high-performance certifiable systems that target IEC 61508 / ISO 26262 norms. The goal is to achieve reduced risk, improved compliance, decreased certification time, and lower system cost.

The designer is guided through:
• The key dependable attributes of a safety design
• How to use Xilinx technologies and methodologies to solve fundamental challenges relating to the design of safety systems
