Clientron Obtained ISO 26262 Automotive Functional Safety Certificate
Clientron, a leading automotive electronics manufacturer, officially announced that it has received ISO 26262:2018 ASIL-D Automotive Functional Safety Certificate, aiming to enlarge the presence in the smart automotive supply chain worldwide.
ISO 26262 is a globally recognized automotive functional safety standard, regarded as one of the basic requirements for suppliers to enter the automotive supply chain. The standard applies to the complete lifecycle of electrical and electronic components in the automotive industry, including initial safety concept, system development, software and hardware development, production, operation, maintenance, and scrapping. ASIL (Automotive Safety Integration Level) is a risk classification system defined by the ISO 26262 standard. ASIL has four categories - ASIL A to ASIL D, and ASIL D indicates the most critical level of development process.
Clientron has focused their efforts on the establishment of the functional safety system for their smart e-cockpit system. It involves multiple development phases, namely functional safety management, development at the concept stage and system stage, software/hardware development, process safety, and product launch. Thanks to the professional consulting service and support, Clientron managed to receive ISO 26262 functional safety certificate at the highest level of ASIL-D from DEKRA. This demonstrates that they can effectively control the risks and functional safety identified in the development process and deliver the product’s safety and reliability. Therefore, the smart e-cockpit system is well served with a safe, intelligent driving environment, which strongly positions them in the international electric vehicle market.
Ms. Kelly Wu, President & CEO of Clientron, stated that the successful ISO 26262 certification at the highest level ASIL-D represents our remarkable capability in working out safe, reliable, connected V2X solutions for smart e-cockpits system by working to the development process and management system of international automakers. Clientron has set electronics, battery, electric motor, and electrical control at its core and integrated the main EV automotive electronics system. With this solution, everything is interconnected, from autonomous driving information system and dashboard of the smart cockpit to BCM (body control module), VCU (vehicle control unit), AVAS (acoustic vehicle alerting system), and vision assistance system. The certification also expands collaboration opportunities with European and American automakers and tier-1 suppliers. Clientron thus showcases their determination to gain a foothold in the smart automotive supply chain and break into the global EV market.
