Functional safety standards are designed to help minimise the risk of physical injury to people or damage to property resulting from dangerous failures.
These failures can arise from:
The challenge that system engineers face is to design systems in a way that addresses both systematic and random hardware faults in order to prevent dangerous failures from occurring. Failing to do so could hinder the system from achieving a safe state in the event of a system failure. C2000 SafeTI products are developed using a certified hardware development process and have several built-in safety mechanisms to ensure that they meet the stringent demands of functional safety standards.
