[Vlog – ISO 26262 Standard for Functional Safety] How to Evaluate Hardware Architecture Metrics Using FMEDA Method

Functional safety of automotive component directly impacts the safety of the “lives on the road”.

Hence, all the stakeholders of the Automotive Industry (OEMs’, Suppliers, Product Engineering Services Companies) always implement the ISO 26262 Standard for Functional Safety, in letter and spirit..

As per the ISO 26262 Standard, the functional safety of all the E/E components (both hardware and software) need to comply with the appropriate ASIL (Automotive Safety and Integrity Level).

In this video, we have thrown some light on the functional safety recommendations, of the ISO 26262 standard, w.r.t the hardware components of the automobile.

One of the critical action-items while designing a hardware, which is fail-safe, is to derive certain hardware architecture metrics. Some of these metrics are SPFM, LFM, and PMHF.

The focus of our video is FMEDA, an industry-wide accepted and highly efficient method to derive these metrics.

What Topics Does The FMEDA Video Cover:

  • Introduction to the hardware architecture metrics (SPFM, LFM, and PMHF)
  • The need for derivation of these metrics w.r.t functional safety
  • What is FMEDA and how does this method help in derivation of the hardware metrics?
  • Input and Output of the FMEDA method

Finding the “failure modes” in automotive ECU hardware and achieving required “safe state” is critical to the functional safety. The FMEDA video has been designed to help you understand this journey from FMEDA’s perspective.

We recommend this video to embedded automotive engineers, automotive project managers as well as the business managers. We are hopeful that everyone will learn something from it.
