The FMEDA (failure mode effects and diagnostics analysis) tool has been optimized for the ISO 26262 standard, which addresses safety of electrical and/or electronic systems within road vehicles.
The CAR Tool has been designed to offer a multi-layered view of the safety-related component with customizable analysis parameters and the results required by ISO 26262, such as single point fault metric (SPFM) and latent fault metric (LFM). This tool can also estimate the probabilistic metric for random hardware failures (PMHF) and evaluate the safety goal violation causes. Results can be displayed from the entire component down to each single element through different hierarchical levels.
The provided library can be customized for different applications, and precisely configured to match the usage of the component in the target system.FIT characteristics, fault characterization, failure modes, fault impact, and fault coverages are just some of the parameters under user control.
