The Hercules™ microcontroller (MCU) platform is the result of TI’s long history of developing and shipping MCUs for safety critical systems, providing a broad portfolio of devices specifically designed to meet the requirements of safety-critical medical, industrial and transportation applications. Robust application of core functional safety techniques and semiconductor industry best practices has resulted in an MCU platform that simplifies safety-critical system design, reduces software overhead and speeds certification, all of which result in lower system cost and faster time-to-market. The Hercules platform comprises three families of scalable functional safety MCUs offering a balance of performance memory, functional safety capability, peripherals, connectivity and cost. These products always operate in a “safe” manner and meet the stringent functional safety requirements of standards such as IEC 61508 or ISO 26262.
