Hitex Development Tools has successfully processed a service project for NXP Semiconductors to meet the IEC 60335 standard for automatic electronic controls.
Subject was the development of a software library including testing, documentation and the steps to get the pre-certification. This ensures the availability of NXP’s IEC 60335 Class B test library for the entire LPC1000 family of ARM Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers. The library has been approved by the VDE (German Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies) testing and certification institute, which is globally recognized as a leader in this field. When using this library, the application will not need to be completely re-evaluated by VDE as part of the final product certification. All the development, testing and certification procedures have been completely performed by Hitex.

“We are very pleased to partner with Hitex as an expert in the range of embedded development,” said Geoff Lees, vice president and general manager, microcontroller product line, NXP Semiconductors. “This cooperation enables us to provide our customers an IEC 60335 Class B test library, reducing time-to-market for white goods and other safety critical applications using our Cortex-M3 LPC1000 family of microcontrollers.”

By running this NXP project Hitex could demonstrate their competence to speed testing and to assure compliance with industry standards and norms. This service can be also offered for developers of Class B products to reach the final certification of the product.
