How Formal Reduces Fault Analysis for ISO 26262 Safety Verification

The ISO 26262 standard defines straightforward metrics for evaluating the “safeness” of a design by defining safety goals, safety mechanisms, and fault metrics. However, determining those metrics is difficult because evaluating every possible fault is impractical on the size of today’s designs. Formal verification tools have an advantage over other approaches because formal tools have [...]

Customising APIS IQ software for ISO26262 safety analysis – Closing the gap from concept to Verification

Complex designs achieve ISO26262 via the introduction of Safety Mechanisms to protect against random hardware faults that can cause a violation of a Safety Goal. The challenge is in performing a comprehensive safety analysis of the design, and proving the completeness of the analysis in an efficient manner. Krishna Priya Chakiat Ramamoorthy from Infineon Technologies [...]
