Vector AUTOSAR Basic Software Successfully Re-Certified – Additional Modules Available in ASIL D

11 MAY 2020

The AUTOSAR basic software MICROSAR Safe from Vector continues to meet the requirements of ISO 26262 up to ASIL D. This is confirmed by the corresponding certificate dated April 23, 2020. The re-certification was carried out by exida – an internationally recognized specialist for Functional Safety.

Three years ago, MICROSAR Safe with 29 modules was successfully certified for the first time according to ISO 26262 up to ASIL D. Now the surveillance assessment took place. It confirms compliance with ASIL D for 19 additional modules. As a result, AUTOSAR developers in safety-related projects benefit from the fact that the most important modules of Vector’s AUTOSAR basic software are awarded the highest integrity level.

In the assessment, modules from various domains of the basic software were evaluated and their freedom from interference was assessed. These include, for example, the AUTOSAR 4.3 crypto stack, the time synchronization modules, the transformers for signal-based and service-oriented communication, the end-to-end protection of communication, and the lean hypervisor for the safe startup of multiple operating systems. In addition, the operating system itself and the basic software modules for CAN, LIN and FlexRay communication as well as the system control and memory management were evaluated.

The ASIL D certified AUTOSAR basic software from Vector, MICROSAR Safe, is available for all microcontrollers commonly used in the automotive environment.
