Reliable basis for safe AUTOSAR ECUs

TÜV Zertifikat

As software increasingly takes over many functions in the car, the aspect of functional safety has become all the more important.

Although implementing, reviewing, and auditing safety-relevant software is an extremely expensive and time-consuming task, it is an absolutely essential one. This is why pre-certified components are often the best solution in terms of cost and quality. And this is where ETAS enters the game.

For over 20 years, ETAS has been developing basic software (BSW) for automotive applications that meet the highest functional safety standards. This was reaffirmed when TÜV SÜD inspected ETAS’ AUTOSAR software development and concluded that RTA-BSW can be safely used in ISO 26262 ASIL-D applications.

The project drew on a number of different safety standards in order to cover passenger vehicles, motorbikes, trucks, and off-highway machinery. The following safety standards were applied in the compliance assessment:

  • ISO 26262:2018
  • IEC 61508:2010
  • ISO/DIS 19014:2018
  • ISO 25119:2018

Overall, the assessment confirmed that RTA-BSW meets the relevant requirements prescribed by the TÜV SÜD Smart Software Program, including those contained in the functional safety module. ETAS customers around the world now have access to a sound basis for achieving high safety standards and can also count on ETAS for local support in many countries.
