Formal Fault Injection

Formal Fault Injection is a verification technique used in safety critical automotive devices as well as other high reliability applications. Safety mechanisms are one of the most critical areas of ISO-26262 compliant automotive designs and their architecture and quality is a key differentiator for various IC providers.

Mark Handover of Mentor Graphics, discussed on the impact of a fault injection safety mechanism for ISO 26262 at the DVClub Europe Conference, “Impact of Safety on Verification”,  on 29th November 2016.

The Presentation Slides and Recordings of Formal Fault Injection are available now

Formal Fault Analysis for ISO 26262 Fault Metrics on Real World Designs

Safety critical development processes, governed by standards such as ISO26262, include the use of fault correction components that protect the device against random faults that occur naturally during operation. The verification of these devices to ensure that a high proportion of these faults will be handled correctly is essential, driving a key diagnostic fault coverage metric. Formal verification has proven an important element in this analysis, used both standalone and with simulation.

Jörg Große, Product Manager for Functional Safety at OneSpin, presented why formal verification has proven a highly effective method to drive high diagnostic fault coverage metric on real world designs at the DVClub Europe Conference which took place on 29th November 2016.

ISO 26262 – This Changes Everything

ISO 26262 is an international standard for functional safety of electrical and/or electronic systems for production of automobiles, and is the first standard of its kind which will drive significant change in both EDA and silicon suppliers.

John Brennan, Product Management Director for Cadence Design Systems, discussed  why functional safety requires a new generation of fault injection technology and why functional safety is not only important in automotive, but for consumer products where the cost of failure is too high at the DVClub Europe Conference, “Safety Driven Verification”, 29th  November 2016.

Software Verification for Low Power, Safety Critical Systems

The goal of the SAFEPOWER project (an EU Horizon 2020 programme) is to enable the development of low power mixed-criticality systems through the provision of a reference architecture, platforms and tools to facilitate the development, testing, and validation of these kinds of systems according to the market needs.

Simon Davidmann of Imperas Software, presented an overview of SAFEPOWER – Xilinx Zynq 7000 device, hypervisor, OS, applications and then focused on the software architecture which help address safety critical aspects of the platform, and outlined about the software simulation tools (for example for power estimation and management) and software verification at the DVClub Europe Conference which took place on 29th November 2016.
