Redefining Analog Fault Simulation for Functional Safety and Test Coverage Analysis
The growth in safety critical applications combined with high analog defect rates is driving the need for rigorous verification of safety and test coverage on automotive ICs. As a result, analog fault simulation is emerging as a critical requirement for automotive SoC design verification flows. IC designers are looking for the highest simulator performance and the most efficient fault reduction to verify safety and test coverage at the sub-system and full chip level. PrimeSim™ Custom Fault is the industry’s leading analog fault simulation solution that delivers best-in-class performance and a differentiated feature set to make sub-system and chip-level functional safety and test coverage analysis practical. PrimeSim Custom Fault is built on industry leading PrimeSim™ simulation technology and VCS® to deliver orders of magnitude higher analog and mixed-signal fault simulation performance. PrimeSim Custom Fault supports GUI and batch mode use models to enable ease of use and productivity for chip-level fault campaigns. PrimeSim Custom Fault can be reliably used to verify safety for ASIL-D applications since it is part of the ISO 26262 TCL1 certified Synopsys Custom Design tool chain.
