About the Contents in the Package

An FMEDA provides the base FIT rate of the device. It also provides the means to determine the residual FIT rate when the relevant diagnostic mechanisms are selected in the FMEDA by the system integrator.

A safety manual describes, in detail, how to use the device from both a hardware and software perspective in a safety-critical application that must conform to the IEC 61508 safety standard.
