ISO 26262 ASIL B & D Ready Certified IP for Automotive ADAS

The growing demand for safety-critical Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for pedestrian detection/avoidance, lane departure warning/correction, traffic sign recognition, surround view, drowsiness monitoring and other applications, is requiring a new class of SoCs. Incorporating the latest interface standards, running multiple vision base algorithms and combining diverse sensor inputs add additional challenges for designers to support real-time multimedia, vision co-processing, and sensor fusion subsystems.

Synopsys’ portfolio of Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) B and D Ready ISO 26262 certified DesignWare IP with safety packages helps designers overcome the challenges of implementing the application-specific IP requirements, accelerate their ISO 26262 SoC-level functional safety assessments and reach target ASILs. In addition to complying to the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standards, Synopsys provides IP that meets the advanced features, small area, high performance and low power requirements of ADAS applications.
