Functional Safety of Programmable Systems Thanks to Quality Assurance Tools

Achieving functional safety requires reliable analysis and thorough testing of software - especially if you need to prove that your code meets industry standards.

IEC 61508 can be seen as a cross-industry safety standard, from which industry-specific safety standards such as ISO 26262 for automotive or EN 50128 for railway technology developed. Part 3 of IEC 61508 is the international industrial standard for the functional safety of programmable systems and describes the requirements for the software.
