TI’s SafeTI software dev process meets functional safety standards to ASIL D and SIL 3 levels

Texas Instruments has announced that its SafeTI functional safety software development process is now certified as suitable for development of ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliant software components. TI’s process was assessed by TÜV NORD, an internationally recognized and accredited independent assessor of compliance to quality and safety standards. In addition, new SafeTI Compliance Support Packages (CSPs), developed according to TI’s certified software development process, are now available for Hercules microcontroller (MCU) software components. TI developed these CSPs to make it easier for customers using Hercules software to achieve end system functional safety certification.

The SafeTI CSPs include static analysis and dynamic analysis test results, code traceability to requirements, code coverage, code quality metrics and more. The CSPs can reduce customers’ software validation efforts and provide work products that can assist them in their end system functional safety certification. TI uses the Liverpool Data Research Associates (LDRA) suite of software analysis tools in the development of these CSPs. The CSPs also feature a Test Automation Unit that utilizes the LDRAunit and enables customers to re-execute included unit-level test cases in their environment. CSPs are available for the Hardware Abstraction Layer Code Generator (HALCoGen ) device drivers and the SafeTI Diagnostic Library for the Hercules MCUs.

Customers can speed time to market, reduce validation effort and simplify software certification activities with the CSPs for TI’s HALCoGen device drivers and SafeTI Hercules Diagnostic Library . Evaluation versions of the CSPs as well as full production single-target or multi-target licenses are available today.
