Specific ISO / DIS 26262 SIL Support
ISO / DIS 26262 is the adaptation of IEC 61508 to comply with needs specific to the application sector of E/E systems within road vehicles. The Draft International Standard (DIS) is the latest version that is publicly available since June 2009. The International Standard (IS) is planned for June 2011.
ISO / DIS 26262 covers functional safety aspects of the entire development process (including such activities as requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, and configuration). Methods defined by the ISO / DIS 26262 standard should be selected depending on the ASIL (i.e. the higher the ASIL, the more demanding the methods that need to be applied).
For a detailed look at how Parasoft addresses the requirements for achieving each ASIL safety integrity level as defined by the ISO / DIS 26262 standard and addresses the development process functional safety aspects that are outlined in ISO / DIS 26262, see our ISO 26262 paper and ASIL paper.
