An ISO 26262 Automotive Semiconductor Safety Primer
Understanding the implications of the ISO 26262 standard on electronic systems development
The ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Standard provides critical guidance on the development of electronic hardware with a tolerable level of risk for modern electric and autonomous vehicles. However, the standard, and derivative works tend to be filled with jargon, acronyms, and preconceived knowledge requirements that make understanding the subject difficult and time consuming. This paper attempts to provide a clear, concise description of the key elements of the standard for developers, such that a working knowledge of its methodology requirements may be achieved.
