Keywords:IEC 60730? automatic control systems? RAM? flash memory? digital signal controller?

The objective of the IEC 60730 safety routines for household appliances is to ensure the safe and reliable operation of their products. Freescale has developed safety routines to help manufacturers of automatic control systems in the large appliance and industrial control market meet the IEC 60730 standard class B.

Typical applications for Freescale safety routines are: cooking products, boiler and heater control, dishwashers, household actuators, dryers, motor control, refrigerators and freezers, elevators, vacuum cleaners, and automatic gates and washing machines. The routines' task is to check the proper functioning of the registers, RAM, and flash memory. These routines have been developed for the 16bit digital signal controller (DSC).

Freescale also offers the Watchdog test (with windowing feature only for DSC MC56F82xxx devices) and clock test (only for DSC MC56F82xxx devices). These tests should be done before running the main application algorithm.
