Using Model-Based Design in an IEC 62304-Compliant Software Development Process

By David Hoadley, MathWorks


IEC 62304 is an international standard (hereafter referred to as the Standard) that specifies software development life cycle processes to improve the safety of medical devices. It defines a series of activities and tasks that are required for medical device software engineering. We will discuss how MathWorks tools for Model-Based Design, which have been used to create high-integrity software, can be used to create control system and signal processing software in a manner compliant with the Standard.
