Presentation Title:Verifying Safety-Specification Compliance of RTL Designs
Abstract:Incorporating hardware safety measures in designs inevitably causes overhead in terms of area, propagation delays, and power consumption. The identification of safety-critical elements of hardware architectures therefore follows general principles, and needs to take into account results of various analyses at concept and design level in order to keep the undesired side-effects of the extra safeguarding logic under control. Configurable hardware safety mechanisms allow the trade-offs between increased safety and hardware optimization to be explored and adjusted.

This presentation discusses an automated formal safety verification flow for not only ensuring the effectiveness of the actually installed safety measures in instantiated designs, but also providing evidence that hardware elements are actually covered and safeguarded as specified, as needed for safety certification according to ISO26262.

  • Safety-Register Specification
  • Formal Safety-Verification
  • ISO26262
