Automotive OEMs are requiring semiconductor suppliers to develop ADAS system-on-chips (SoCs) and modules in compliance to the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard. Safety critical systems rely on SoCs to meet Automotive Safety and Integrity Levels (ASIL) specific to each application. Synopsys’ DesignWare IP portfolio with safety packages is ASIL B and D Ready ISO 26262 certified, and designed for use in safety critical applications.
The safety packages consist of failure modes effects and diagnostics analysis (FMEDA) reports, safety manuals, and certification report to accelerate safety assessments and help designers reach their target ASILs. Using certified IP also helps SoC designers reduce supply chain risk and accelerate the requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation and configuration of their SoC-level functional safety.
