LDRA (Wirral, UK) has launched a tool suite that offers support for the IEC 61508 and IEC 61508:2010 standards, functional safety standards for electrical/electronic/programmable electronic (E/E/PE) systems, from requirements through design, code, analysis, and certification. IEC 61508 translates Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) into software-specific objectives where the rigor of testing hinges on whether the system involves low or high/continuous demand situations. The tool suite automatically checks compliance to the IEC 61508 standard through all stages of the software development lifecycle. It extends compliance down to the processor level with automated documentation that offers proof of compliance throughout all stages of development.
