The demand for innovation continues to grow in safety critical markets such as automotive,
industrial and mil-aero. Companies must ensure their products operate correctly
and fail safely throughout the operational life.
Innovation continues to drive higher levels of complexity across all safety-critical industries, exacerbating the challenge to plan, execute, and close each safety activity.
Requirements management is the backbone of a safety-critical lifecycle and standards demand requirements workflow, traceability, and verification be established.
Project teams must demonstrate functional behavior of large autonomous systems, a growing challenge when systems are exceeding millions of gates with hardware, software, digital and analog components.
Tessent automotive-grade test products use the latest most advanced fault modeling to ensure that safety-critical products that target zero defects, are delivered with the highest quality possible.
Safety-critical products must be bug free, a growing challenge as designs regularly exceed a million gates and include hardware, software and a mix of digital and analog signals.
Large full chip SoCs suffer performance degradation using fault simulation. Full software stack safety mechanisms consume billions of cycles leading to Time to Safety risks. Emulation can help to achieve faster Time to Safety.
In-System test technologies should be leveraged to provide a high level of failure detection for minimal additional silicon area in safety-critical designs.
Project teams are challenged to understand, plan, execute and deliver on the required activities in a safety-critical lifecycle, resulting in significant schedule and cost impact. Services help bridge knowledge and resource gaps.
Safety-critical projects must perform tool assessment and qualification, ensuring development tools aren’t introducing bugs/defects into the product.
Every automotive semiconductor has a unique set of challenges and a successful safety lifecycle relies on deploying the correct mix of technologies and flows for the target application.
