ARM: Easing the development of functionally safe controllers

February 09, 2017 // By James Scobie
This paper identifies the need for increased adoption of functional safety and describes how processors can help address the high level of criticality more simply. It details how the provision of fault detection and control features for random errors can be offered together with protection against systematic software errors, while meeting the demanding high- performance and deterministic execution. It makes specific reference to the Cortex-R52 processor core from ARM.
