MPLAB® Development Ecosystem for Functional Safety

When you are designing functional safety applications, using development tools that meet the requirements of safety standards can make it easier for you to create compliant systems. The ISO 26262 functional safety standard for automotive systems includes specific requirements for development tools. To help you with implementing system-level functional safety in your applications, we have received certification by TÜV SÜD for our MPLAB® XC C compilers for several functional safety standards and provide the complete certification packages for the MPLAB development tools ecosystem to help you qualify your projects.

Certified by TÜV SÜD for Functional Safety

We offer a TÜV SÜD-certified design tool package that supports all our PIC®, dsPIC®, AVR® and SAM devices to make your tool qualification effort easier. The MPLAB XC Compiler Licenses for functional safety include all the documentation and reports needed to have a fully qualified ISO 26262, IEC 61508, IEC 62304 and IEC 60730 development environment. The documentation package includes TÜV SUD certificates for all four standards, a functional safety manual for the functional safety compiler version of your choice, safety plan and complete tools classification and qualification reports for our MPLAB XC compilers, MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment, (IDE), MPLAB Code Coverage and all MPLAB debugger/programmers.

The combination of the new TÜV SÜD-certified MPLAB XC Compiler licenses and MPLAB Code Coverage tool simplifies your functional safety certification when using our microcontrollers (MCUs) and Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) that are designed with functional safety in mind.

Key Features

  • TÜV SUD-certified MPLAB XC functional safety licenses

  • Support for PIC, AVR and SAM MCUs and dsPIC DSCs

  • Maximize code optimizations for code size reduction and efficiency

  • Satisfy requirements specified in ISO 26262, IEC 61508, IEC 62304 and IEC 60730

  • All documentation and reports are included for a fully qualified development environment

Tool Safety Classification

MPLAB XC compilers are tightly tied to the creation of source code in your project. Therefore, they are classified Tool Confidence Level 2 and are subject to the most stringent qualification requirements. Every version of the MPLAB XC compiler is developed according to industry-recognized processes and stringently validated using a combination of industry-standard and extensive in-house test suites. This means that the MPLAB XC compilers are suitable for use in the development of a wide range of functional safety applications.
