STMicroelectronics’ introduces new software for its STM32 microcontrollers (MCUs) in the SIL Functional-Safety Design Package, which comprises documentation and the X-CUBE-STL, a software Self-Test Library certified to IEC 61508 SIL3. The package is initially available for the STM32F0 series. The company will continue to introduce equivalent packages for all other series in the STM32 family throughout 2018 and 2019.
TÜV Rheinland, a leading international certification institute for functional safety certification to relevant international standards, has positively assessed X-CUBE-STL-F0 according to the functional safety standard IEC 61508:2010. Detailed information of the certificate will be available soon at Functions-Safety Products.
Swiss-based sensor manufacturer Contrinex is the first to use ST’s Functional-Safety Design Package to certify safety products based on STM32F0 microcontrollers. The Functional-Safety Design Package for STM32F0 microcontrollers is available free of charge. For more details, visit STMicroelectronics.
