Texas Instruments Inc. has rolled out its SafeTI design packages that according to the company will allow customers to quickly market their safety-critical applications. The design packages make it easier for customers to achieve compliance to safety standards and are geared for products in markets that include industrial, automotive, transportation, energy, medical and many others, to speed up safety-critical product development.

SafeTI design packages provide help to manage both systematic and random failures, enabling customers to design their functional safety systems. Automotive designers can use SafeTI-26262 design packages for component-level compliance to ISO 26262 safety requirements to support ASIL-A to ASIL-D for applications such as steering, braking, transmission, electric vehicle battery management and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

Transportation, industrial and medical designers can use SafeTI-61508 packages for component-level compliance to IEC 61508, which supports standards from SIL-1 to SIL-3 and system-level compliance to SIL-4 for industrial controllers, remote input/output (I/O), human machine interface (HMI), safety/shutdown and process machinery and others. These packages also can also help designers in safety products, such as railway train control, signalling and braking, medical infusion pumps, respirators and ventilators.

Household appliance designers can look to SafeTI-60730 for software that is certified to IEC 60730 /UL1998 for household appliance designs such as washing machines, refrigerators and household electrical controls, because these packages comply with IEC 60730 standards and support Class A to Class C requirements.

SafeTI-Quality Managed (QM) products are developed under a rigorous development process and come with a Safety Manual and Safety Analysis Report for evaluating system components. SafeTI-QM components include embedded processors, power management devices, motor drivers and many other analogue components.
