Automate safety analyses
paitron acts as a spell checker for engineering models, providing a “one-click” approach for safety assessment. It can be used to conduct FMEA, FMECA, FMEDA & unlike other solutions, paitron reuses already existing digital models from standard modeling environments like OrCAD & Matlab Simulink.
Thus, the overhead for modeling decreases significantly as no additional test model is required, while enabling a continuous & seamlessly integrated workflow!
No magic, nor probabilistic methods are used to derive the results. Formal methods and theorem proofing enable white-box reasoning and the highest quality. Therefore, receiving a Concept Report by Tüv Süd (for ISO 26262 and IEC 61508).
Whether E/E, PL, or interdisciplinary systems covering mechanics, hydraulics, and pneumatics, paitron will support you.
At a glance
Originated in 2011 as a functional safety standard for the automotive industry. The latest revision is in 2018. Distinguishes critical systems along ASIL A-D. Mandatory FMEA/FMEDA.
The “mother of” functional safety standards was published in 1998. With its latest revision in 2010, it is mainly applied in the process industry. Categories are SIL 1-4. Mandatory FMEDA.
Published in 2015, ISO 13849 is specifically applicable to control systems of safety-related systems, e.g. in robotics. Provides five classes to determine the safety of a system, PL a-e. FMEA/FMEDA/FMECA is mandatory.

Whether medical devices, marine systems, trains, or aerospace, functional safety analyses are prescribed globally.
The modeling and simulation tool for nearly all use cases. With libraries ranging from the hydraulic to the electronic domain, Matlab Simulink is used across industries. Matlab Simulink 2019a onwards is supported.
The freeware tool by Analog Devices is the go-to software to simulate electronic circuits. Features are modeling, simulation & generation of Bill-of-materials. The latest version LTspice XVII is supported.
OrCAD PSpice & Capture
Developed by Cadence, Orcad offers functionality from modeling, simulation to layouting.

Altium Designer, Mentor Graphics DxDesigner, and many more tools are supported by paitron. In case of no existing interface to your tool, we are happy to provide you with the proper implementation.
FMEA is an inductive approach to assess a system’s behavior under fault. The bottom-up analysis allows inspecting possible failure modes methodologically.
Failure modes, effects, and criticality analysis put emphasis on the severity and occurrence rate of failure effects.
Failure modes, effects, and diagnostic analysis is an extension to the FMEA to reflect the diagnostic capabilities of a system.

OUR SUCCESS STORIES
The HIMax is an industrial safety-critical system of the HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH that contains multiple digital output modules, whose signals are intended for use in a programmable electronic system. In this article, a partial safety analysis of the HIMax is assessed with paitron.
This post aims to show how the tool concept of paitron was evaluated from TÜV SÜD and regarding its certification ability as a qualified software for the use in safety-critical applications.
In this article, we compare a manually generated expert failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) taken from SAE ARP4761 with an automatically generated one, produced with paitron and find where the ARP 4761 went wrong.
