Certified tools

Certified tools for functional safety

IAR Systems provides certified versions of the complete compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM and for Renesas RX and RL78.

Functional safety in embedded systems

Functional safety is one of the most important features in many embedded systems today, especially within sectors such as automotive, industrial automation and medical. High-integrity standards frequently require you to provide extensive justification for selecting a particular development tool, unless the tool is already certified. The proof of compliance for the tools increases cost and time of development. To solve this problem, IAR Systems provides certified versions of the complete compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM and for Renesas RX and RL78.

With the certified versions, a special functional safety support and update agreement is offered.

Certified by TÜV SÜD

The functional safety versions of the tools are certified by TÜV SÜD according to the requirements of IEC 61508, the international umbrella standard for functional safety, as well as ISO 26262, which is used for automotive safety-related systems. For ARM, the tools are also certified according to the European railway standard EN 50128.

Functional safety standards

IEC 61508

IEC 61508 is the international umbrella standard for functional safety. The standard, and standards derived from it, is used within all kinds of industries with requirements on reliability and safety, for example process industries, the oil and gas industry, nuclear power plants, machinery, and railway control systems. The certification validates the quality of IAR Systems’ entire development processes, as well as the delivered software, and qualifies the tool suit for software development according to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3.

ISO 26262

ISO 26262 is used for automotive safety-related systems. The certification validates the quality of IAR Systems’ entire development processes, as well as the delivered software, and qualifies the tool suit for software development according to Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D.

EN 50128

EN 50128 is a European standard for safety related software in railway applications. The standard is derived from IEC 61508.
