VF2017: Automotive Safety and Security

Conference: Verification Futures 2017 (click here to see full programme)
Speaker: Jean-Marc Forey (Senior Field Application Manager), Synopsys
Presentation Title: Automotive Safety and Security in a Verification Continuum Context
Abstract: Use of electronics is rapidly growing in automotive to cover a wide range of systems from powertrain to ADAS and infotainment. This trend is pushing semiconductor companies to deliver a broad set of SoCs, address increasing complexity and cost, expand system and software expertise, and ensure compliance with ISO 26262. When it comes to verification, a strong verification solution is required but it must also be expanded to meet the specific requirements of automotive system development including early software development, speed up of functional safety SoC verification for ISO 26262 and enablement of Tier1/OEM system design. In this presentation Synopsys will discuss how the automotive verification continuum addresses these requirements.
