Reliability and safety really matters considering the increasing complexity of automotive electronics and automated functions. Functional Safety becomes essential to secure that both device hardware and software operate safely, or bring the system into a safe mode in case of failure.
ST’s SPC5 Safety Pack, a comprehensive software package designed for our SPC5 family of 32-bit automotive microcontrollers, has been rigorously developed according to an ISO 26262-compliant development process, and helps developers achieve the required safety target, up to the most rigorous ASIL-D level.
SPC5 Safety Pack includes a Safety kit for the Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL) as well as Core self-test programs that implement safety counter-measures to ensure compliance with MCU ASIL level requirements.
ST’s Core self-test is a fault-graded software library delivered with a certified test coverage for each core unit (arithmetic-logic, data path, address calculation, interrupt handling and control logic).
The embedded safety manual for SPC5 MCUs will guide you through the mode of use to ensure that your solution complies with ISO 26262 requirements.
Developers can use ST’s Software Service to validate the MCAL according to the safety concepts defined by the final users. ST Safety Pack software components are licensed products.
