SoC Enables Faster IEC 61508 Compliance

Xilinx launches a single-chip Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC functional safety solution to shorten time to IEC 61508 compliance and certification across industrial applications like IIoT Edge Controllers, Motor Drives, Intelligent IOs, Smart Sensors, Gateways, Industrial Transport, and Electrical Grids. The package includes a hardware design based on a single-chip SIL 3 and HFT=1 architecture with a complete set of supporting documentation, assessment reports, IP and software tools. According to Xilinx, users can significantly reduce their own risk and reduce certification and development times by as much as 24 months. Also, the single-chip solution will help cut systems cost by more than 40%; customers previously needed to leverage two or more devices to achieve the reliability and redundancy requirements outlined in IEC 61508.

 

The Zynq-7000 SoC is the first single-chip application processor to integrate safety and non-safety functionality onto a single device and pass assessment by functional safety authority TÜV Rheinland for addressing the on-chip redundancy requirements outlined in Part 2 Annex E of the IEC 61508 international standard.
