Renesas, with its broad and deep penetration across industrial applications, has taken a leadership position in functional safety solutions.

Renesas Electronics Corporation has rolled out new functional safety solutions that meet the IEC61508 standard for both its RA and RX Families of microcontrollers.

Renesas Functional Safety SolutionsRenesas now offers IEC 61508 SIL3i certified self-test software for both ARM Cortex-M23 and -M33-based MCUs.

“Companies of all sizes and in all geographies are seeking help in navigating functional safety requirements,” said Roger Wendelken, Senior Vice President in Renesas’ IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit. “We are proud to lead the industry in providing certified software solutions that complement our MCUs and assist our customers in getting to market faster.”

“The diagnostic software added to the Renesas solution, issued by TÜV Rheinland for functional safety certification, is based on the ARM core, which is increasingly being adopted in industrial automation,” said Masataka Nakao, General Manager, responsible for Functional Safety in Business Stream Industrial Services and Cybersecurity at TÜV Rheinland Japan. “Verifying diagnostic software takes time, and we are confident that certified Renesas diagnostic software can increase the  efficiency of customers’ functional safety product development, which will contribute to the expansion of the functional safety market.”

Renesas also announced the IEC 61508 SIL3 certified PROFIsafe Application Software for RX MCUs. Renesas is the industry’s first semiconductor supplier to offer these hardware-software solutions.

Renesas, with its broad and deep penetration across industrial applications, has taken a leadership position in functional safety solutions.

Renesas experts help customers get to market faster by providing end-to-end support across the broad range of 32-bit MCU families, from concept to commercialization.

Renesas offers comprehensive training and facilitates easy, complimentary evaluation of software solutions.

During development, Renesas’ certified solutions help accelerate customers’ time to market and reduce the total cost of ownership. Commercial licensing is available for certified software solutions and technical support is provided throughout the entire product development process.

Safe network communication is a critical functional safety consideration for applications that use industrial Ethernet. Renesas addresses this need with the new PROFIsafe Application Software, strengthening its safety network offerings.

The new SIL3-certified PROFIsafe Application Software Kit realizes PROFIsafe functionalities on PROFINET slave devices and eliminates the certification step for network communications.

The solution works together with Renesas’ industry-proven certified SIL3 System Software kit for RX MCUs. The PROFIsafe Application Software supports RX200, RX600 and RX700 series MCUs. Self-test Software is already available for RX MCUs.
