The Distributed Electro-hydraulic Braking system (DEHB) is a wet type brake-by-wire system. As a safety critical automotive electrical and/or electronic (E/E) system, DEHB shall be designed under the guideline of ISO 26262 in order to avoid unreasonable risk due to the malfunctions in the item. This paper explores how the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) decomposition in the concept phase is influenced by the system architectures of DEHB. Based on a typical hazardous event, analysis on DEHB with the same system architecture as the Electro-mechanical Braking system (EMB) is carried out, which is taken as the basis for comparison. Two types of DEHB with different system architectures are then analyzed. Results show that the adoption of hydraulic backup enables ASIL decomposition in the pedal unit. The adoption of both hydraulic backup and normally open balance valves offers the opportunity to perform ASIL decomposition in the brake actuator system of DEHB.
