Reducing Steps to Achieve Safety Certification

January 11, 2012 // By Altera
This white paper describes the successful steps in achieving certification for an FPGA implementation of an application certified for functional safety. Safety is a critical system requirement in developing machinery that must comply with worldwide established standards such as the IEC 61508 basic functional safety standard. Altera’s pre-qualified Functional Safety Data Package shortens development and certification time and reduces certification risks in safety-critical industrial applications.
