IEC61508 Certification Webinar Overview
With recent advances in automation, software is no longer a small part of electro-mechanical systems but the underlying technology providing functional safety for products in many market segments. The requirement for software functional safety has become a critical topic in industrial automation, transportation, nuclear energy generation and other markets. IEC 61508 is widely accepted as the basic standard, on which sector-specific standards are built.
The webcast will draw on the experience gained during the certification of QSS’ Neutrino kernel and development processes to IEC 61508 at Safety Integrity Level 3. The online seminar will be presented by Yi Zheng (QNX product manager) and Chris Hobbs (QNX software developer).
