The growth of safety features in today’s automotive SoCs requires IP providers to put strict processes in place to help ensure that the IP meets stringent functional safety and reliability standards. Synopsys’ broad portfolio of silicon-proven IP meets the required automotive standards to help designers accelerate the qualification processes for their safety-critical Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), connected vehicle and infotainment, gateway SoCs, as well as mainstream MCUs. Synopsys’ quality and reliability standards give automotive SoC designers confidence when developing their complex SoCs using the latest interface IP, processor IP, embedded memories and logic libraries in mainstream and advanced process nodes. The ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System for DesignWare IP implements applicable clauses of the IATF 16949 standard supporting additional stringent automotive quality requirements.
DesignWare Interface PHY IP, embedded memories and logic libraries have been designed in accordance to Synopsys’ automotive mission profile following automotive-specific design rules. Synopsys verifies the IP with very high reliability automotive Parts Per Million (PPM) targets and critical specifications according to automotive Process Capability Index (Cpk) distributions.
