Practice safety commitments on the strength of internationally authoritative professionalism

With the help of TÜV SÜD's Functional Safety Expert Team, XPT has not only established a project management and development team with functional safety engineer qualification, but also set up a product development process system that meets the ASIL D level under ISO 26262: 2018 and can be applied by the relevant functional safety project development team.

Function Safety

What is Function Safety? The so-called "Function Safety" is the general term of technologies used to avoid inadmissible functional risks through safety functions and measures. The "Function" in Function Safety means the function of safety devices used to monitor controlled objects and controllers. We usually take computer as a safety device. If the controller fails, the computer will shut down the controlled object and send a danger warning to the user. The function safety realized by safety devices is called "Function Safety". Function Safety can be regarded as a safety measure designed through the use of computer and other safety devices.

In Europe and the United States, a full range of Function Safety related product directives and design standards has been enacted and widely used in various fields, such as nuclear power industry, petroleum, chemical industry, power plant and other process industries, industrial machinery, elevator and escalator, intelligent grid, home appliance software evaluation, automobile industry, and medical software evaluation.

ISO 26262

ISO 26262 is a Function Safety Standard for automobile electronics, also known as a global standard formulated by the International Organization for Standardization in 2011 and revised in December 2018. This standard covers activities related to Function Safety management, concept stage design, and system, hardware, software design and production in the safety life cycle of automobile products. Through the guiding effect of standard technical specifications, this standard aims to effectively avoid and control system failure and random hardware failure, so as to help automobile product manufacturers reduce the product liability risk to an acceptable level. At present, ISO 26262 has become one of the industry-recognized compliance access barriers.

Automobile Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)

In ISO 26262, ASIL is an indicator of hazardous risk level.

ASIL consists of four levels: A, B, C and D where A represents the lowest level and D the highest level. The ASIL levels represent the requirements for system security. The higher the ASIL level, the higher the requirements for system security, the higher the cost to achieve security, the higher the diagnostic coverage of hardware, the stricter the development process, the higher the corresponding development cost, the longer the development cycle, and the stricter the technical requirements.
