Kurt Shuler, vice president at Arteris IP talks with Bernard Murphy about the complexities of interpreting the ISO 26262 standard new SemiWiki blog:
The Reality of ISO 26262 Interpretation. Experience Matters
November 30, 2020 - Bernard Murphy
Interpreting ISO 26262 without ambiguity is not always easy. Suppliers and integrators can read some aspects differently, creating confusion. Which is a problem since ISO 26262 has become so much a part of any discussion on automotive electronics that it has gained almost biblical significance. Yet most of us, even suppliers to the market, understand at best only what they have read in the document. I had a fascinating discussion with Kurt Shuler (VP Marketing at Arteris IP) on the background to and challenges in interpretation in the standard. Kurt is a member on the technical advisory group to ISO 26262 and is extensively involved in safety management. It turns out that everything you need to know is not always covered in the official document.
