Overcoming the Challenges with M2M Device Lifecycle Management

Duration: 1 hour


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.

1 hour, including Q & A.
