Applying Functional Safety with Semiconductors, ISO 26262 - PART 11

by Gregory Gruska,Jai Durgam published on June 11, 2020

On December 20, 2018 the second edition of ISO 26262 was published. One of the biggest challenges, and opportunities in the document, was the guidance offered in Part 11 to Semiconductor organizations. Many semiconductor organizations have not had a chance to read or to understand this document. This webinar will highlight the significance of this guidance document. 

There were many key changes, the standard has added a Part 12 on Motorcycles, a Part 11 on Guidance on Semiconductor Development, and has integrated specific requirements for Trucks, Buses, and Trailers / Semi-Trailers throughout. Additionally, there are several key changes organizations need to recognize, such as a scope change in ISO 26262, where it now include “all road vehicles.” The standard also references Cybersecurity in Part 2: Management of Functional Safety, and includes an Annex E, an (informative) Guidance on potential interaction of functional safety with cybersecurity. As in the first edition, the standard does not address the nominal performance of E/E-Systems and, specifically, the safety of autonomous vehicles that are not caused by malfunctions. However, this will be addressed by ISO/PAS 21448 or SOTIF (Safety of the Intended Functionality). SOTIF and ISO 26262 will impact all parts of the Automotive Supply Chain. The integration of SOTIF with ISO 26262 will be the key challenge of hardware suppliers engaged in “perception systems” for automobiles. 

This webinar will highlight the changes to the ISO 26262, but the main focus will be on how Semiconductor organizations can tackle ISO 26262. The new standard provides guidance on SEEOC and also provides suggestions on how hardware can be structured between the System on a Chip or SOC.
