Overview:
In this webinar, attendees will learn about the
new process requirements that are a result of IEC 62304, as compared to FDA
guidance requirements, and examples of common development process gaps that can
arise when moving an existing process to become IEC 62304 compliant. We will
focus on the software risk management requirements of IEC 62304, and the
different process steps required when developing software of each of the
different safety classifications. The business impact of the process
requirements will be briefly reviewed.

Having different levels of safety
classification in your software offers challenges and opportunities when
architecting the entire system. There are options and best practices available
for delivering a system solution that has different levels of safety
criticality. The options that will be discussed include no separation, hardware
separation, multicore, and software separation techniques. The difficulty of
implementation of the chosen strategy is affected by choices of operating system
and other third party tools which can impact your verification, validation,
certification and approval processes.

Join this webinar to learn these
best practices and listen to the experts that have architected the software
subsystems of many medical devices, all of which have gained IEC 62304
compliance and FDA approvals.

Estimated length: 1 hour, including
Q & A.
