Presentation Title:Fault Injection in Virtual Prototype – A Method to Increase SW Coverage
Abstract:The complexity and safety aspects of Automotive applications are increasing day by day due to evolving ADAS market requirements. In addition it is mandatory for any automotive microcontroller to be compliant with ISO26262 standard and hence functional safety features form an integral part of each automotive product development phase, ranging from the specification, to design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, and production release. Any failure may lead to a serious impact both in terms of cost and life of a human being. A conventional testing technique often is not sufficient to cover all the corner case scenarios. This leads to challenges in achieving code coverage for safety critical SW. Fault injection technique is commonly used to overcome the above challenge.

In this presentation, different types of fault injection, VP based fault injection techniques and some use cases are described.

  • Functional Safety
  • Fault injection
  • Virtual Prototype
Speaker Bio:Dinesh is currently leading the Virtual prototype development of AURIX family of Microcontrollers in Infineon Technologies. He has got 13+ years of experience in ESL domain with focus into development of VP for classical pre silicon SW validation, RTL co-simulation and also early performance analysis and optimization using models. Prior to Infineon, he worked with Intel and Tata Elxsi. He pursued electrical engineering from NIT, Trichy.
