Embedded Safety for Your Product

Industry is changing. Businesses are digitizing and networking systems across all sectors – and making these systems as autonomous as possible. While the opportunities and potential of this transformation are great, it also leads to ever-increasing functional safety requirements.

In order to meet these requirements, HIMA offers tailored developments and custom designs based on the HICore platform, enabling you to integrate functional safety in your systems. With HIMA Embedded Solutions, you can develop complete solutions that can adapt flexibly to your systems and be integrated seamlessly into applications.

Embedded Solutions based on HICore meet all market expectations. The world’s smallest TÜV-certified safety system on chip fulfils all functional safety requirements up to SIL 3 in accordance IEC 61508. Pre-certification makes certifying your entire system easier – whether it is an embedded system or a controller for mechanical or plant engineering. The advantage of this is that your developers can then focus fully on your products’ functionality. 

HIMA supports you throughout the entire development process from the conceptual phase through hardware and software design, right up to certification.

Maximum Safety, Minimum Size

With HICore 1, the chip-based safety system, you simplify development. This makes the solution incredibly cost-effective, particularly for tight market launch deadlines or when there is high pressure on costs. Thanks to its TÜV-certified operating system, the platform offers maximum intrinsic safety. All you have to do is ensure that your application is also safe.

Moreover, with HICore 1, you benefit from extremely high availability. Certified communications libraries for PROFIsafe and FSoE make HICore 1 a communications platform.
