For an increasing number of industrial control systems, functional safety requirements must be met. There are commercial requirements for the product, which often severely limit the development budget for human resources and development tools. 

In this webinar we will give an overview of the goals of IEC 61508 and the requirements on Functional Safety systems.  We will show how that relates to software development and -testing and how a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software solution uses Time and Space separation to build safe systems.  With a view to the future we explore how software can exploit modern multicore architectures and what that means from a software safety perspective. In a live demo we will show how to white box- and unit-test for IEC 61508 with a COTS solution.
