SaFE hardware and software development Training

Our Safe Hardware and Software Development for Embedded Systems Training offers a comprehensive overview of all the detailed aspects related to the development of embedded systems for the use in safety related application. It is designed to provide participants with a thorough understanding of functional safety principles, techniques and measures. In addition to the practice oriented examples, we delve into the IEC 61508 functional safety standard, equipping attendees with the knowledge to develope safe embedded systems not only following the standard, but understanding the practical implication of it.

Who Benefits From This Training

This training is tailored to benefit a wide range of professionals, from project leaders to developers and testers, who are involved in functional safety development of embedded systems. It is particularly important for the R&D department who approach this topic for the first time or need a refresh about the latest updates based on the state of the art (i.e. update of IEC 61508 3rd edition).


The Safe Hardware and Software Development for Embedded Systems Training has a duration of 3 days and covers the following topics:

  • Day 1: Functional Safety Basic, see also Training – Functional Safety Basic
  • Day 2:
    • Safe Hardware Development
      • Safety Integrity Level
      • Safety Architectures
      • Failure Rates and Metric Calculation
      • Diagnostic Coverage and FMEDA
      • Techniques and Measures according to IEC 61508
      • HW Process Development
  • Day 3:
    • Safe Software Development
      • Software Process Development
      • Software Design
      • Software Test and Verification
      • Tools for usage in safety development
      • Safety Communication
attending a training

The training contains practical exercises for most of the topics. Upon the training the attendee will be requested to provide a list of questions/topics to be adressed in detail. The training can be integrated with an additional day where the functional safety topics are applied to a specific customer project. The training can also be tailored based on customer needs (adding or removing topics, where required)

Your Expertise After the Training

Upon completing this training, you will gain the ability to understand the concepts related to the development of software and hardware for embedded systems. You will be well-prepared to start functional safety development for hardware and software systems. You will understand the practical implication of the standard requirements (IEC 61508), applied to the context of software and hardware development. Additionally, you will be able to engage with notified bodies and other third-party organizations regarding functional safety matters.
