re: Freescale claims first MCU to achieve ISO 26262 certification

I have been able only to find limited un-cited reference to this event ("certification" of the two Renesas microcontrollers to ASIL D).  I would appreciate identification of the two microcontrollers icdsn mentioned.  FSL and TI have both identified the specific microcontrollers they have certified (MPC5643Lx and TMS570LSxxx respectively ) and publicly presented the exida and TUV certificates, which state the exact scope of the 3rd party ISO 26262 certification, as MHOD mentions.

Also the standard defining ASIL D was released in November 2011

Customers need to be able to confirm the exact scope of, and validate, any 3rd party ISO 26262 certification claims made by semiconductor suppliers. To be able to 100% confirm the validity of such claims, customers should request the supplier’s certification number, if it was issued by a 3rd party assessor. Freescale’s certification number from Exida, is “FREESCALE 1108067 P0026 C001".

This claim is false. Renesas Electronics has had two microcontrollers certified by TUV SUD to be ASIL D compliant since July of 2011.
