IEC61508/ ISO26262: Designing Safety Critical Applications

A design toolbox for hardware, software and system Engineers.


21-22 May 2020

This course is intended for design engineers. It provides the fundamental ground of knowledge needed to enable R&D to operate in a safety critical design process and to interface with the Safety Managers.

When a product is recommended to meet any Safety related norm, professionals involved in the development of electronics hardware and software parts need to understand the foundation of Functional Safety and to adopt related processes and tools.

This training is structured as a general approach, to provide an extensive practical toolbox on how to effectively implement a safety-first design process. For this reason, It is focused on the fundamental elements of the IEC 61508 norm, which is the most extensive and general. ISO 26262 is also analyzed along with other important derived norms.

Training details
  • At the end of the training course, a certificate will be released by the Safety Professional.
  • The number of participants is limited.
  • Price per attendee: 1.200,- Eur + IVA

Day 1: Functional Safety fundamentals

A general overview is given on IEC 61508 basics: random vs systematic failures, SIL definitions, and safety analysis methods. Some derived norms such as Automotive (ISO 26262), Industrial (IEC 61511), Railways (EN 50126) and Machinery (EN ISO 13849) are surveyed.

Day 2: Hands On implementation example: electronic board with two safety functions

By using an example implementation, the system design aspects are analyzed: Safety Plan and system features, HAZOP and Safety Functions, Hardware Safety /FMEA, FTA and Sil Verification, Software Design (requirements, Integrity, development tools, Life cycle planning, validation), and Final System validation.
