Teaming with Hitex Development tools, Texas Instruments has introduced the new SafeTI Hitex Safety Kit. The kit enables developers to evaluate SafeTI components for use in their designs requiring compliance to functional safety standards such as ISO26262 and IEC 61508. The state-of-the-art kit provides an example system with capabilities for hardware fault injection, application and run-time profiling of fault diagnostics and system response monitoring in real-time.

The kit integrates key capabilities for fault injection, application of diagnostics, reaction monitoring and run-time profiling of fault diagnostic routines for the example system. It also provides a demo software application which can be used as a starting point for evaluating TI Hercules MCU and PMIC combination chipset. TI's latest kit also uses a second MCU on the evaluation board, which acts as test control and monitor unit, and manages communication with the GUI.

The SafeTI Hitex Safety Kit enables customers to easily evaluate performance of SafeTI components for use in their safety-critical designs. The cost-effective hardware platform allows customers to evaluate the individual TI hardware components, either Hercules TMS570LS31x microcontrollers (MCUs) or RM48x MCUs and TPS65381-Q1 power management integrated circuit (PMIC) C with TI's Hercules SafeTI Diagnostic Library.
