First Tool Qualification Symposium: April 9th–10th, 2013 in Munich

Functional safety of embedded systems depends on the tools being used for development. Therefore the functional safety standards (ISO 26262, DO-178, IEC 61508) require tool qualification.

The qualification effort can be reduced by analyzing and eventually enhancing the development processes. Tool providers can sell qualification kits to create confidence in their tools, thereby improving the development process of embedded systems by eliminating the checks introduced to mitigate potential tool errors.

This symposium brings together both tool users and providers from different industrial sectors to share their knowledge and experience in tool qualification.
