Key Time Parameters in Functional Safety

Recording Date: February 2019

There are several time parameters that are used in functional safety. Some of these parameters seem counterintuitive, e.g. a device with an average failure rate of 100 years but it fails after 10 years. How do these numbers align? Terms like useful life and Mean Time To Failure seem to contradict each other. In SIL verification calculations Mission Time is used, how does this fit in? This webinar will talk about the different time parameters and how they are used in functional safety. It will provide a basic understanding of the time parameters.
