Intel Functional Safety Data Package

Intel Functional Safety Data Package is a solution to reduce development time, system complexity, and certification risk. This IEC61508-certified Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3) package reduces certification risks in safety-critical industrial applications. These applications include industrial servo and inverter drives, safety devices, and automation controllers. The Safety Separation Design Flow retains the FPGA benefit of quick upgrades/bug fixes while reducing the need for full design re-certification.
