In April 2016 SGS will be the first company to deliver functional safety training courses specifically focused on semiconductor development in accordance with ISO 26262 and ISO/PAS 18451.

Offering training and qualifications for semiconductor developers, this brand new two-stage training course is tailored specifically to the semiconductor industry’s development processes and technical interpretations. On successful completion of both modules and a final exam at the end of the course, trainees will qualify as Semiconductor Automotive Functional Safety Professionals (SC-AFSP).

Rising To The Intelligent Systems Challenge

The automotive industry faces many technological challenges, including the development and implementation of innovative technologies, such as automated driving and intelligent assistance systems. The ICs and IPs, that are increasingly being used, must meet the safety requirements of ASIL and/or ISO 26262, as the industry puts ever greater responsibility for functional safety on the development of semiconductors.

"This course equips semiconductor developers in the automotive industry with the skills to effectively implement the normative requirements and thus provide significant benefits to the sector," says Wolfgang Ruf, Head of Functional Safety Semiconductors at SGS.

SGS is offering its new Functional Safety Training for Semiconductor Development course at various locations, including California, USA and Munich, Germany. More information >
