Meeting ISO 26262 Standards
Optimizing Diagnostic Design Tradeoffs
Does your FMEDA failure database have all components needed? With all known failure modes?
FMEDAx Auto provides an integrated the engineering tool needed for effective, integrated design analysis.
Failure Modes Effects and Diagnostics Analysis (FMEDA) is a failure rate prediction technique invented by engineers at exida that uses component failure rates chosen per a given design strength profile in combination with an operational profile which specifies an application and environment.
The FMEDA technique is performed on a specific device (e.g., LIDAR sensors, motor controllers etc.) specified down to the manufacturer and series/model. Variables that must be considered in the analysis include:
The FMEDAx Auto tool user enters information for the specific design based on product schematics along with expert knowledge on the potential impact of expected failure modes and how they would be handled in the specific system under evaluation. This analysis is a part of the typical high-quality product design certification process for a product certified to ISO 26262 for a particular ASIL.
The FMEDAx Auto tool was created by the inventors of the FMEDA technique and incorporates the knowledge developed over decades of use. The FMEDAx tool comes with an electronic database specified for automotive operational profiles.
