Functional Safety

Electric / Electronic control units are taking over more and more safety functions, which means that safety-relevant system development are becoming increasingly complex. This increased complexity leads to more demands on producers and suppliers. Consequently, the importance of functional safety is growing constantly.

In many industries, there are regulations and safety standards which contain guidelines for the individual processes and the technical realization of functional safety functions. The ISO 26262 for road vehicles, for example, is an adaptation of the industrial mother standard IEC 61508 to the specific conditions in the automotive sector.

NTC does not only understand the theoretical processes of functional safety, our approach is hands on as well, with extensive experience in the development of safety-driven electrics and electronics in accordance with the applicable standards and regulations such as:

  • Automotive (IEC 61508, ISO 26262)
  • Railway Technology (EN50126, EN50128, EN50129)
  • Industrial Technology (DIN 16590,
    IEC 61508, IEC/EN 62061, ISO 13849,
    ISO 25119)
  • Medical Technology (IEC 60601, IEC 61508,
    IEC 62304, ISO 13485, ISO 14971)

We perform the entire safety-relevant development chain for you! Together we implement your project in a step-by-step manner from planning, analysis, conceptualisation and specification of the system requirements.

Your benefits: One single source for all steps, calculable and comprehensible costs and clearly defined results
