Overview

Although variation of the application scenes ranges from an industry robot to a service robot, the market of robots that can safely coexist with human beings is expected to widely grow in the future.
Taking actions for the functional safety is inevitable to enable robots to coexist with human beings safely.
Renesas provides the safety package as the solution for the microcontroller level and the safety reference kit as the solution for the system level to reduce burden on the functional safety system development.
The subcontracting company sells the “Safety controller” that has the functional safety certification IEC61508 SIL2 not only for microcontrollers but also for boards and the higher safety level IEC61508 SIL3 to support introduction into the market for the certified devices.
