Testing and validation processes typically account for 20% to 30% of development costs. The certification of TTControl’s off-the-shelf electronic control units can reduce these costs and enable faster time to market.
ISO 26262 is the international standard for road vehicle functional safety as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard aims to reduce possible hazards caused by electrical and electronic systems’ failure and malfunctioning. The ISO 26262:2018 certification allows the use of the electronic controllers designed for rough operating conditions in road vehicle electrical and electronic (E/E) systems, including buses and trucks.
The HY-TTC 500 series consists of high-end safety-control units, designed to build up a safe, centralized electronic architecture using a single controller for the whole vehicle.
So far, the HY-TTC 500 family has fulfilled the IEC 61508, ISO 13849 and ISO 25119 safety standards. Now, the entire ECU platform covering both hardware and software when programmed in C complies with the even stricter requirements for functional safety under ISO 26262:2018, as a safety element out of context (SEooC).
In conclusion, a single safety certified controller of HY-TTC 500 family can be used in a wide range of automotive and off-highway applications to handle electronic complexity, save costs and increase safety.
