Functional Safety related services

Functional safety is one of the most important features in many embedded systems and companies must consider development tools as an integral part of the system certification. The proof of compliance for the tools increases cost and time of development. To solve this problem, IAR Systems provides a certified version of the complete compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm.

The build chains of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm has been tested and approved according to the requirements on support tools put forth in the international umbrella standard for functional safety IEC 61508, the standard for automotive safety-related systems ISO 26262, and the the European railway standard EN 50128 and EN 50657. The certification also covers IEC 62304, defining the life cycle requirements for medical device software. The quality assurance measures applied by IAR Systems and the included Safety Manual allow application developers to use the tools in safety-related software development for each Safety Integrity Level (SIL) according to IEC 61508 and each Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) of ISO 26262. IAR Embedded Workbench is certified by TÜV SÜD.

The functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench provides a complete IDE including the IAR C/C++ Compiler and the C-SPY Debugger. The code analysis tools C-RUN and C-STAT add static and runtime analysis, enabling complete code control through the entire development cycle.

In addition to this solid technology, the certified edition comes with a special Functional Safety Support and Update Agreement which includes guaranteed support through the product life cycle, prioritized support, validated service packs and regular reports of known problems.
