Functional Safety Design Package Enables Smarter Factories and Medical Equipment

December 3, 2013

TUV SUD certified design methodology and tools increase design productivity and reduce certification risks

NUREMBURG, Germany - Xilinx, Inc. announced its comprehensive functional safety design package for industrial, automotive, medical, aerospace and defense applications according to IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 safety standards. Xilinx's functional safety package includes a TUV SUDcertified design methodology and tools that increase design productivity and reduce certification risks.

"Xilinx has worked with TUV SUD to ease the burden for system design teams that are faced with the selection of system components and design methodologies that meet established industry standards and functional safety design concerns," said Christoph Fritsch, director of industrial, scientific and medical market segments for Xilinx. "By leveraging Xilinx's functional safety design flow solution, system designers can accelerate their certification process, reduce design costs, and ensure their products comply with worldwide standards."

Xilinx's certified functional safety design methodologies allow system designers to deliver highly differentiated, highly integrated safety compliant solutions with the fastest time to market. The Isolation Design Flow (IDF) and Isolation Verification Tools (IVT) provide a unique and automated methodology to separate system- critical and non-system-critical functions within the same FPGA through physical area isolation. The independent designs, in isolated locations, can be changed at any time without impacting other isolated locations, which reduces design complexity and development time.


Design teams can start using Xilinx's comprehensive functional safety design package today. Please contact your local Xilinx sales representative for more information or visit
