Medical Device Software – Software Life Cycle Processes
- IEC International Electrotechnical Commission
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 [2-4], can be used to create control system and signal processing software in a manner compliant with the Standard.
