STMicroelectronics Teams with Yogitech to Develop Safety Package for STM32 Microcontrollers

imagesNew Delhi, 18 November, 2013 – STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Yogitech, a leader in providing functional safety solutions, have signed an agreement to create a comprehensive package that will simplify the development and certification of safety-critical applications based on STM32 microcontrollers.

ST and Yogitech have agreed to develop a safety manual and software test libraries as a simple, quick, and effective means of detecting and flagging potentially dangerous failures in STM32 designs using tailored development tools from IAR Systems. Directed at a market estimated at over €400 million in Europe alone, the initiative aims at allowing engineers to choose from over 500 ST microcontrollers to create innovative and safe industrial products for factory-automation applications.

“The complexity of modern integrated circuits is such that the adoption of a black-box approach for safety analysis is no longer an option,” said Silvano Motto, CEO of Yogitech. “The development of the STM32 safety package takes advantage of fRMethodology, our patented white-box approach to address functional safety analyses of integrated circuits approved by TÜV SÜD and by many lead companies in multiple application domains like industrial and automotive.”

“Achieving stringent functional-safety certification on systems where STM32 is the main microcontroller is a very popular request within our industrial customer base,” said Jacky Perdrigeat, EMEA Marketing Vice President for Microcontrollers, STMicroelectronics. “The cooperation with Yogitech sets to speed up time-to-market for critical safety applications, strengthening our offering for the industrial- and factory-automation markets, which are key segments for the STM32 product family.”

The market-proven 32-bit STM32 ARM® Cortex™- M microcontrollers combine high performance, real-time capabilities, digital signal processing, and low‑power, low‑voltage operation, while maintaining ease of development and extensive compatibility between devices, families and software
