Arm is proud to announce the launch of its Functional Safety Partnership Program which brings together partners in Arm’s broad ecosystem who specialize in the area of functional safety and can reliably support our customers with industry-leading functional safety services, tools and training.
As Arm remains committed to functional safety through a number of key initiatives and products, we’re also aware that driving functional safety at an industry level requires collaboration and expertise. This is especially true when industries are facing big challenges like the enablement of autonomous driving in automotive, smart factories in industrial, predictive technologies in medical and reducing cost in aerospace. Furthermore, the current entropy in the market is such that there exists an increasing number of customers who are only coming to know about functional safety in recent times, as they move from market segments that did not have safety requirements, such as mobile and other consumer products.
With our ecosystem of thousands of partners, we understand it can sometimes be difficult for customers to find the right partners with the right experience and expertise in the field of functional safety. By launching this new program, we aim to make the process easier and quicker, providing our customers with the right support and ultimately shortening the time to market for their functional safety product.
Arm is an advocate for an holistic approach to functional safety and we understand the importance of having somebody that can look at the ‘big picture’ and ensure that there are no loose ends or cracks in a functional safety concept consisting of, often, hundreds of different hardware and software elements that need to comprehensively deliver the safety functions needed to minimize the risk of hazards to people and/or the environment. The Arm functional safety partners can help our customers achieve that.
Arm’s Functional Safety Partnership Program showcases a range of functional safety partners who specialize in areas of software and tools, design services and training services.
An Arm partner in this category is expected to deliver functional safety products on Arm such as RTOS and libraries but also offline tools such as compilers, modelling tools and verification tools.
