ISO 26262 Support

More and more safety-critical systems are part of today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles, e.g. integrated chassis management, active front steering, and driver assistance systems such as ACC. The development for those systems must consider additional requirements imposed on process, methods and tools in order to be compliant to functional safety standards. In order to achieve and establish a uniform, generally recognized approach for the development of such safety-related systems OEMs, suppliers and engineering service providers worldwide have created the automotive specific functional safety standard ISO 26262. 

dSPACE supports its customers in developing and testing new functionalities according to ISO 26262. To do this, dSPACE not only provides a continuous tool chain, but also consulting services regarding the management of development and test environments to adhere to ISO 26262.

  • dSPACE AutomationDesk and TargetLink are certified for testing safety-related systems or for development of safety-critical functions in accordance with ISO 26262 by the technical inspection association TÜV SÜD.
  • Consultancy services to comply with the standard and implement its requirements efficiently.
  • Supporting the introduction and improvement of model-based development and code generation, also for safety-critical systems.
  • Supporting the development of an ISO-26262-compliant validation strategy.
  • Evaluating the suitability of customers’ HIL verification environments for all Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL).

dSPACE Process Consulting

dSPACE Process Consulting offers consultancy projects to support you in defining processes and optimizing them throughout all phases of ECU development, independent of whether dSPACE tools are used.

ISO 26262 for HIL Simulation

dSPACE offers comprehensive advice and support for setting up a HIL test system according to ISO 26262 requirements. Additionally, the use of ISO-26262-certified tools such as AutomationDesk reduces the efforts for making test processes ISO-26262-compliant.

ISO 26262 for Production Code Generation

TargetLink, dSPACE's production code generator, generates highly efficient C code directly from Simulink/Stateflow models. It supports efficient, modular development and is ISO 26262- and IEC 61508-certified. TargetLink’s qualities include its success in safety-critical applications across industries, high reliability, development process integration, and support of standards such as AUTOSAR, ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2), MISRA and OSEK.
