Danlaw Embarks on 3rd Party Recognition for ISO 26262 Qualification

Tool Qualification Kit for Mx-Suite™ will significantly reduce qualification time and effort

NOVI, Mich., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Danlaw, Inc., a global provider of automotive embedded engineering solutions, announces the selection of industry leader CertTech, LLC to develop and offer a Tool Qualification Kit (TQK) for Mx-Suite.  Additionally, Danlaw is working with a 3rd party company to review Mx-Suite for formal ISO 26262 qualification. 

ISO 26262 is the adaptation of IEC 61508 to comply with needs specific to the application sector of electrical and/or electronic (E/E) systems within road vehicles. Figure 1 shows the overall structure of this edition of ISO 26262. ISO 26262 is based upon a V-model as a reference process model for the different phases of product development.

"Danlaw has selected two very respected and trusted names in the industry to work with," said Dan McClung, VP Operations, Engineering Services of Danlaw. "CertTech's Tool Qualification Kit will benefit our existing customer base, as well as new additions, as tool capability requirements for ISO 26262 become mainstream and perhaps mandatory in the future."

CertTech's TQK will define the functional requirements Mx-Suite must meet including a set of tests to demonstrate compliance with ISO 26262 requirements. TQK will also provide extensive documentation to show compliance in accordance with the functional safety standards. "The Tool Qualification Kit for Mx-Suite provides tremendous value to companies across a wide variety of safety and mission-critical industries where rigorous product development processes demand the highest levels of assurance," said Jeff Gray, CEO of CertTech. The TQK will become publicly available in Q4 2014.

The Mx-Suite Embedded Software Test Environment is designed to help automotive ECU module suppliers produce their products more efficiently and with higher quality through continuous integration. Using intuitive graphical diagrams, software requirements are easily documented with performance criteria and tolerances, therefore simplifying software validation. The tool provides traceability from requirements, through design and test cases. Mx-Suite™ allows engineers to test development concepts using virtual prototypes, before electronics are available. Mx-Suite™ is used to validate models (MIL), execute tests on developer-written or auto-coded software including strong AUTOSAR support (SIL), as well as run tests with bench and hardware in the loop (HIL) equipment. Automotive OEMs and tier 1 suppliers across body, powertrain, chassis, safety and infotainment alike continue to rely on Mx-Suite for its intuitive user interface and complete test coverage.
