Functional Safety

Functional safety refers to the ability of a system or product to operate correctly and safely, even when faced with potentially hazardous conditions or situations. It involves the application of engineering and management principles to systematically identify and mitigate risks associated with software malfunctions or failures.

Functional Safety

Safety-critical software

Hitex understands the importance of functional safety in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and industrial automation. Our engineers have extensive experience in developing safety-critical software solutions that comply with safety standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508.

Hitex develops software solutions that are not only innovative and efficient, but also safe and reliable. In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, where software is deeply integrated into various critical systems, functional safety has become a paramount concern.

The importance of functional safety cannot be overstated, especially in industries such as automotive, medical devices, industrial automation, and others. In these industries, a failure in software functionality can have serious consequences, including personal injury, loss of life, environmental damage, and financial loss.

Welcome to the world of functional safety

To address these risks, regulatory bodies and industry standards organizations have established stringent requirements and guidelines for functional safety. One such widely recognized standard is the ISO 26262 for automotive functional safety. Other standards, like IEC 61508 for general industrial applications or DO-178 for aerospace software, also provide comprehensive frameworks for achieving functional safety.

Achieving functional safety involves a multi-layered approach, starting from the early stages of software development and continuing throughout the product lifecycle. With Hitex on your side, you don't have to worry about it anymore. Our approach includes activities such as risk assessment, safety requirements specification, design and implementation of safety mechanisms, verification and validation, and ongoing maintenance and support. We also want to share our knowledge and empower development teams with security concepts, techniques and best practices through our trainings.

Functional safety is a critical aspect of embedded software development. By embracing functional safety principles, adhering to relevant standards, Hitex can deliver high-quality, dependable software solutions and contribute to a safe embedded world.
