Mixel Achieves ISO 26262 for Automotive Functional Safety and ISO 9001 Certification for IP Quality Management System

Mixel, Inc. announced that it has achieved ISO 9001 Quality Management System Certification by DEKRA Certification, Inc. and ISO 26262 certification for automotive functional safety by SGS-TUV Saar GmbH.

In order to achieve each respective certification, Mixel had to meet the requirements for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) standard for its IP development process. Once ISO 9001 certified, Mixel then followed its ISO 9001 QMS to demonstrate that both its processes and products met the requirements for ISO 26262:2018. Both ISO certifications covers Mixel's headquarters in San Jose, California, and its satellite operations in Cairo, Egypt.

The ISO 9001:2015 standard is based on key quality management principles including customer focus, the role of top management, the process approach, and continual improvement. The standard provides guidance and tools for companies and organizations that want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customers' requirements, and that quality is continually enhanced.

To achieve full ISO 26262 certification, Mixel went through generic process audit and MIPI products functional safety assessment with SGS-TUV. Mixel showed that its MIPI IP products follow systematic functional safety development flow requirements. In addition, Mixel's MIPI IP follow its ISO 9001 certified QMS and delivered with comprehensive functional safety documentation including Safety Manual, Safety Case Repor, Failure Modes, Effects, and Diagnostics Analysis (FMEDA), Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA), and other safety related documentation.

In addition to functional safety deliverables included with the ISO 26262 certified IP, Mixel has developed additional test capabilities of its IP, the TX+ and RX+ configurations. The patented RX+ and proprietary TX+ configurations give automotive SoC designers the full-speed loopback testability of a universal configuration without the area penalty.

Mixel's MIPI IPs are fully certified for ISO 26262:2018 and available now.
