Several leading semiconductor companies have already adopted the new PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution, including Dialog Semiconductor, TDK-Micronas, STMicroelectronics, and AMD for a variety of different applications.
Dialog Semi is using PrimeSim CCK for analog IPs; AMD is using PrimeSim HSPICE with AVA for high-sigma analysis; STMicroelectronics is using EMIR analysis for analog IPs, as well as MOSRA and AVA; and finally, TDK-Micronas is utilizing Custom Fault for IP-level FMEDA analysis and ISO 26262 compliance.
“Automotive ICs govern the operation of a plethora of mission-critical functions such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), braking and steering and, therefore, require systematic FMEDA [failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis] analysis to ensure high levels of functional safety,” said Dr. Mario Anton, vice president of R&D at TDK-Micronas GmbH in a recent news release. “The analog fault simulation technology of PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution offers high-performance, customizable fault models and an open fault database, enabling our designers to easily calculate IP-level FMEDA metrics and verify ISO 26262 compliance on our automotive ICs.”
By providing cohesive reliability verification across early, normal, and end-of-life scenarios, the PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution addresses a variety of industries’ needs to produce safe and trusted hyper-converged designs. Learn more about PrimSim Reliability Analysis →
