ST: free safety-design package for certification of STM32-based IEC 61508 applications
STMicroelectronics is helping technology brands design safer applications, more quickly and cost-effectively, with new software for its successful STM32 microcontrollers. Created for designers of STM32-based devices in the field of industrial controls, robots, sensors, medical, or transportation, which must be certified up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 or 3 of the recognized safety standard IEC 61508, ST’s STM32 SIL Functional-Safety Design Package simplifies system development and certification.
The SIL Functional-Safety Design Package, which comprises documentation and the X-CUBE-STL, a software Self-Test Library certified to IEC 61508 SIL3, is initially available for the STM32F0 series. ST will continue to introduce equivalent packages for all other series in the STM32 family throughout 2018 and 2019. There are currently more than 800 STM32 microcontroller variants that give product developers unique flexibility to optimize price, performance, and feature integration.
TÜV Rheinland has positively assessed X-CUBE-STL-F0 according to the functional safety standard IEC 61508:2010.
