Safety-certified tools

Simplified validation with pre-certified tools

Available for Arm, for Renesas RX, RL78 and RH850, and for STM8.

Certified for functional safety

Functional safety is one of the most important features in many embedded systems today. 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, we provide certified editions of IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm, for Renesas RX, RL78 and RH850, and for STM8.

Certified by TÜV SÜD

The functional safety editions of the tools are certified by TÜV SÜD according to the requirements of IEC 61508, ISO 26262 (ISO 26262-6:2018), EN 50128 and EN 50657. For Arm, RX, RL78 and STM8, the certification also covers IEC 62304. The certification validates the quality of IAR Systems’ entire development processes, as well as the delivered software.

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.

ISO 26262

ISO 26262 is used for automotive safety-related systems.

EN 50128 and EN 50657

EN 50128 and EN 50657 are European standards for safety related software in railway applications. The standards are derived from IEC 61508. 

IEC 62304

The international standard IEC 62304 is a standard which specifies life cycle requirements for the development of medical software and software within medical devices.
