I just heard from the folks at Microsemi that they will be hosting live webinar on Tuesday 26 June 2012 from 8:00am to 9:00am Pacific Time (and it's free – hurray!)
Safety critical applications can be found in numerous market segments including avionics, medical, industrial automation, power plants, railmotive, gas/oil industry and more. In each of these the inherent system characteristics include but not limited to high reliability, long product life availability and secure operation to name few. International standards such as IEC 61508 are the benchmark standards for process safety and as such manufacturers are investing heavily into safety systems to become compliant.
Microsemi has a long history of providing highly reliable products for the aerospace and military community. This attention to detail, coupled with long life cycles and highly reliable products, is applicable to safety critical focused manufacturers looking for the highest reliable products and platforms on which to base their next generation safety critical applications.
In this webinar the attendee will be introduced to numerous concepts including functional safety, IEC 61508, implementation techniques and Microsemi deployment examples.
