I just received notification about a free online training session coming up on Tuesday 19 June 2012. Here's the "Official Spiel":
Designers of safety-critical applications requiring IEC 61508 or ISO 26262 certification need product solutions that protect against random and systematic failures, offer headroom for application differentiation and enable simplified development and system certification.
The Texas Instruments Hercules RM4 and TMS570 ARM Cortex-R4F microcontrollers have been designed from the ground up to meet these requirements. Join design experts from Texas Instruments and Avnet Electronics Marketing for an educational webinar that will explore the concept of functional safety and how it can be achieved by implementing Hercules ARM Safety MCUs in a wide array of designs.
Webinar attendees will receive a discount code to purchase the TMDXRM48USB Hercules Development Kit or TMS570LS31x Hercules USB Stick Development Kit at a 50% discount at www.AvnetExpress.comWho should attend?
Designers of end products that require IEC 61508 or ISO 26262 certification for target markets such as aerospace, automotive, transportation, medical and industrial Key takeaways:
- A basic understanding of functional safety standards and directives
- An understanding of Hercules MCUs can easily be used to implement a safety-critical system
- Knowledge of available development tools and design resources
