Review: Functional Safety Seminar No. 1, Olten

Monday, 27. February 2017

During the course of this year (2017) MESCO offers a series of lectures on Functional Safety jointly with its partners Renesas and Avnet Silica. The first seminar was held on the 22nd of February in Olten. More than 30 participants were informed about Functional Safety, Industry 4.0, microcontrollers and specific software solutions.

From the agenda:

– Basic principles of Functional Safety
– Specific solutions and explanations related to design and development in accordance with IEC 61508

– Introduction to the topics Industry 4.0 and Xilinx

– Relevant MCU product families for industrial applications, in combination with safety requirements

The feedback received shows that these contents met exactly the expectations of the participants.
Information on the evaluation of products with respect to their classification or the introduction of a Functional Safety Management in companies was received with great interest. With our specific MESCO expertise, we were able to support these subjects and queries efficiently and in a competent manner.

The topics Industry 4.0 and IIoT occupied the participants very intensively. Special interest was devoted to Functional Safety in conjunction with Security in IIoT applications. At this point deep discussions ensued.

The participants experienced Renesas as a competent provider of microcontrollers and software solutions – and MESCO, once again, as a competent adviser and partner for specific safety consulting and various developments in the fields of hardware and software. The combinations of these special areas result in outstanding synergy effects to users.

We will continue with our series of seminars and workshops in 2017 and would like to invite you to join us!
The exact dates will be published as soon as they are confirmed.
