Functional Safety and Safety Standards
With the high number of control units in today's applications, the functional safety of electronic systems is very important. There are guidelines and safety standards for many industries, providing specifications for individual processes and the technical implementation of functional safety.
Functional safety means the prevention of unjustifiable risks that can arise from hazards caused by malfunctions in electrical or electronic systems.
An example of such a standard is ISO 26262 for road vehicles, which was published in November 2011 expanding the generic safety standard IEC 61508 as an industry-specific standard for functional safety.
