Functional Safety - More than just λ

Recording Date: March 2019

Let’s talk about functional safety and how it is more than just failure rates or certificates. This webinar will zoom out to the bigger picture of why functional safety is actually important in real life, not just on paper, calculations or in notes.

At the end of the day, the main goal of all the safety and IEC standards, of all the product certification and failure rates, of function safety in general is to prevent serious and potentially deadly catastrophes. This webinar will take the broad view of what functional safety really is, why it is important and what your responsibilities are as an OEM.
