Using Automotive IP For Easier Integration Of Safety Into SoCs


By Shivakumar Chonnad and Vladimir Litovtchenko Today’s SoCs for automotive safety-related systems integrate numerous IP blocks. At the system level, the Hardware Software Interface (HSI) between these IP blocks needs to be verified in simulation and validated in prototype. However, the scaling of the scope and effort to verify or validate is not linear based on the growing complexity of S... » read more

Traceability Of Functional Safety Requirements In Automotive IP And SoCs


By Shivakumar Chonnad, Vladimir Litovtchenko, and Rohit Bhardwaj Developing functional safety systems, including all the components such as the system-on-chip (SoC) and IP, hinges on the ability to meet the stringent automotive functional safety requirements such as definition, implementation, verification, and validation. Depending on the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL), the functi... » read more
