SEGGERs Quality management certified according to ISO 9001:2015
At SEGGER, we are proud to live "quality first". This translates into all of our processes and is documented with the ISO 9001:2015 certification, that we have received and that we renew continuously.
SEGGER's management and development processes have been certified according to ISO 9001:2015. The certified processes all have been established and maintained within SEGGER for years. All processes have been defined with the goal to maximize the quality of the output. In case of the development processes, this directly translates into product quality.
A cornerstone to our development work is the closed loop development, that we have installed within SEGGER. This means, that any product produced by us, is used by our own engineers. These engineers have the dedication to work with the best tools available and they do not accept less for their tasks. With their feedback we make sure, that our tools continue to provide the best results in user experience and product performance for our customers.
- Embedded Software like Embedded Studio and Ozone are used to develop, debug and support J-Link, Flasher, embOS, and all other software components running on embedded systems
- The J-Link and Flasher firmware makes use of embOS, emSecure, emFile, emUSB-Device, emNet, emSSL, among others
Extensive Testing Routines
SEGGER's engineering has invested significant time in making sure, that products are thoroughly tested. An example for the efforts has been published by the USB department. The team has created a setup that enable automated tests with different USB setups.
Quality of Support
SEGGER probably has the biggest collection of evaluation boards in the world available to the engineering team. The collection has more than 3,000 evaluation boards for a wide variety of different microcontrollers. Embedded Systems are all about supporting hardware. With the huge number of test systems available, SEGGER's engineering can make sure, that the delivered packages simply work.
To find the right evaluation board for the task at hand, SEGGER engineers can tap into SEGGER's own evaluation board management system.
High Development Standards
As part of the certification process of embOS-Safe SEGGER's development processes have undergone additional in-depth reviews. The certification for functional safety according to ISO 61508 SIL 3 and IEC 62304 Class C confirms the quality of the SEGGER development processes and demonstrates that embOS-Safe is perfectly suited for being the fundamental component of safety products.
TÜV Süd Germany has certified the real-time operating system (RTOS) embOS-Safe according to IEC 61508 SIL 3 and IEC 62304 Class C. IEC 61508 is the standard for functional safety and referenced in multiple derived standards in different areas. embOS-Safe certifications according to other standards, including ISO 26262, can easily be done.
All SEGGER software products follow the same high development standards, that have been certified for embOS.
