Certified software leverages functional safety
Especially in automotive electronics applications, compliance with functional safety standards is of utmost importance. For its microcontrollers and microprocessors of the STM8 and STM32 families, chip manufacturer STMicroelectronics has therefore now introduced three software packages that facilitate the development of safety-relevant applications. By the way, this benefits not only developers in the automotive electronics sector, but also in industrial and medical technology.

Developers of safety-critical household appliances are addressed by the X-CUBE-CLASSB package, which is certified by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) according to IEC 60335-1 and 60730-1 and is offered for the STM32F0, G0, F1, F3, G4, F2, F4, F7, H7, L0, L1, L4 and WB series.

Also available is the STM8-SafeCLASSB package, which enables device designers to benefit from the high efficiency, low cost and low power consumption of the STM8 devices.

The X-CUBE-STL, X-CUBE-CLASSB and STM8-SafeCLASSB packages contain application-independent self-test libraries for central CPU and memory components as well as the necessary safety documentation.

The application of these packages can help developers to overcome technical challenges, accelerate the market introduction and minimize the certification costs.

ST Authorized Partners offer appropriate service and support for each phase of the development cycle - from defining safety requirements, implementing safety diagnostics, testing and validation to product certification. These partners include Embedded Office, Microsoft, Arm, Segger and Wittenstein, all of which offer Safety RTOS for STM32 microcontrollers and microprocessors. In addition, IAR Systems and Arm also offer Functional Safety certified compilers for the STM8 and STM32 families, while Embedded Office, Hitex, innotec, MESCO and NewTec provide software, design and engineering services, reference platforms and training facilities to support customers' projects.
