Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments present functional safety webinar

Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments present functional safety webinar

Mouser Electronics has teamed up with Texas Instruments to bring the engineering community a webinar, titled “Develop your functional safety signal chain application with Texas Instruments”. The free live webinar will occur at 3 pm CEST on Monday, 18 October 2021.

Functional safety is required across most industrial applications, in particular factory automation and control systems. It plays a vital role in the overall safety of a system and depends on responding to certain inputs and failure states in a predictable manner. Functional safety standards accept that there is always a hazard and specify how to develop systems that reduce the risk to a tolerable level. Therefore, system designs that include functional safety must lower the risk from improper use and detect faults to minimise their impact.

Presented by Lars Lotzenburger, system engineer for factory automation and control at Texas Instruments, the webinar aims to kick start the functional safety development process and how it applies to attendees’ applications. Identifying the hazards and defining the functional safety goals are crucial elements of this process. Therefore, creating a qualitative failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) is essential.

During the webinar, attendees will learn how to develop schematics and in-depth diagnostic methods that address the challenges of avoiding dangerous malfunctions of the application. Functional safety-relevant parameters results, such as the failure in time (FIT) rate, diagnostic coverage and probability of dangerous failure per hour, will then be reviewed based on the components that the quantitative FMEDA has generated.

Attendees will gain valuable insights into how to develop a signal chain application within functional safety standards. To learn more and to register for the free webinar, visit
