ASCET-MD and ASCET-SE certified for the development of safety-related systems

ASCET-MD V6.1 and ASCET-SE V6.1 have been certified by TÜV-SÜD as “fit for purpose” for use in the development of safety related systems according to IEC 61508:2010 and ISO/DIS 26262:2009. The certification covers code generation for all currently supported microcontroller targets for systems with a safety integrity level up to and including SIL 3 for IEC 61508 and ASIL D for ISO/DIS 26262.

The certification establishes that the ASCET code generator:

  • Fulfils the normative requirements for its use of in a safety-related development process
  • Is developed according to a good software development process
  • Is supported by a comprehensive maintenance system for handling in-service problems

Certification is a voluntary process undertaken by ETAS to provide independent third-party confirmation that ASCET and ETAS’ processes for its development and maintenance permit its use in the development of software for safety-related systems.
