The functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RX is certified as a qualified tool for development of safety-related applications. The certification is made by TÜV SÜD according to the requirements of IEC 61508 and ISO 26262. It also covers the EN 50128 and EN 50657, as well as IEC 62304. To ensure code quality, the static code analysis tool C-STAT and the runtime analysis tool C-RUN are integrated with the functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas RX.

As for all functional safety toolchain editions from IAR Systems, this latest product version is validated and delivered as a frozen version. Along with the strong technology, IAR Systems offers a Functional Safety Support and Update Agreement that includes support for the longevity of the contract.
