Automated and Scalable Functional Safety Verification is Essential for ISO 26262 Compliance of Automotive SoCs - Sponsored By Synopsys, Inc.

  • David Hsu, Synopsys, Inc.

ISO 26262 compliance at the highest levels of functional safety is becoming a requirement for a wide range of complex automotive SoCs. For example, AI processors, many of which are Arm® processor-based, that enable the most advanced levels of automotive autonomy, increasingly need to be ISO 26262 ASIL D-certified. Meeting ISO 26262 compliance needs for very large devices with many proprietary and 3rd party IPs presents unprecedented challenges for SoC verification teams. The failure mode analysis of potentially hundreds of units must be distributed to engineers and teams with specific domain expertise, and these analyses must then be combined to create coherent device-level FMEAs and FMEDAs. Fault injection testing to evaluate the effectiveness of safety-related IPs and SoCs in addressing random hardware failures is one of the key aspects of ISO 26262 Second Edition Chapter 11 requirements. This session will describe a state-of-the-art functional safety verification solution built around VC Functional Safety Manager, Synopsys’ product for FMEA/FMEDA automation scalable for complex automotive SoCs and large verification teams, as well as Z01X, our industry-leading functional safety fault simulation solution, that automates the generation of key ISO 26262 deliverables.
