Safe Boards & Components

Developed According to EN 5012x or DO-254 & DO-178B

Safe Computers Made by MEN

Integrate a reliable MEN system platform into your vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-land communication network.

Fail-Operational: Triple Redundancy in Hardware

The design of MEN’s safe single-board computers A602 and D602 offers a triple-redundant setup on the hardware level. To the application, they appear as regular single-CPU cards with just one main memory rank. 2-out-of-3 voting in hardware keeps the three CPUs in lockstep. The boards’ method of operation is strictly deterministic, without interrupts and DMA.

Fail-Safe and Fail-Silent: Dual Redundancy with Redundant Software

The F75P safe computer unites three CPUs on one single board. With redundant software running on it, and with the software instances on the two control processors comparing their output, the board can shut down in case of a fatal fault. The two redundant CPU kernels support a safe RTOS and diversity, while the third CPU can run, e.g., Linux for convenient user interaction.

Rugged Computing Solutions for Harsh Environments – Typically MEN

MEN develops and produces standard and custom computing solutions that employ the highest technology levels.

In the respective markets, products may environmentally comply with the EN 50155 railway standard, the DO-160G aerospace standard and the ISO 7637-2 (E-mark) automotive standard. Products for safety-critical applications are developed according to railway standards EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129 in order to reach safety integrity levels SIL 1 to SIL 4 - or according to avionics standards RTCA DO-254 and DO-178B in order to reach safety levels DAL-E up to DAL-A. MEN is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001 as well as EN/AS 9100 (aerospace) and IRIS (transportation). MEN products are available up to 10 years and more, thanks to MEN's superior obsolescence management.
