First to Functional Safety

Micron automotive solutions are defined and designed with safety in mind. We continue to drive and lead the automotive market with the industry’s first and only JEDEC compliant ASIL-D ISO 26262 certified memory products. Learn about the evolution of functional safety and ISO 26262.


The Micron SAFER automotive memory blog series

Vehicles on the road today are packed with more features than ever before, and it has become increasingly important for automotive electronic and electrical systems to meet rigorous safety standards. In our blog series, we'll discuss how Micron's SAFER framework enables our customers to make more informed decisions about automotive memory solutions.

Micron makes automotive SAFER

Developed by Micron based on our 30+ years of automotive leadership, SAFER is our framework for providing guidance to customers when considering automotive memory solutions and support. Read our blog series to learn how Micron SAFER memory helps customers put functional safety in the driver's seat.

Functional safety’s role in improved automotive safety

At the core of functional safety is fault coverage — the ability to detect and correct a potential fault and return the system to a safe state. In this blog, we'll discuss different types of fault coverage, ASIL classifications, and why ISO 26262-compliant memory is essential for functional safety.

2. Instrument cluster (ASIL-B)
3. Engine management (ASIL-C to D)
4. Headlights (ASIL-B)


5. Radar cruise control (ASIL-C)
6. Electric power steering (ASIL-D)
7. Vision ADAS (ASIL-B)

Functional safety is the absence of unreasonable risk due to hazards caused by failures or unintended behaviors of electrical and electronic systems. The Automotive Safety Integrity level (ASIL) is measured by exposure, controllability and severity, where the corresponding ASIL level reflects the severity of harm vs. the probability of occurrence. ASIL-A is the least stringent and ASIL-D is the most stringent.
