Verification Flow for ASIL Compliant Automotive SoCs

Functional safety features are an essential part of automotive system-on-chip development. ISO26262 standard dictates ASIC development process in safety applications like airbag control, electronic stability control.

Deva Phanindra Kumar from Analog Devices, has recently spoke on how verification flows should be setup to meet stringent requirements of ISO26262 and covered the verification challenges in verifying safety measures for an Automotive ASIL compliant chip at the DVClub Bangalore Conference -“Unique Challenges in Verifying Automotive SoCs”, on 24 November 2017.

Reuse – Key for mitigating IP Verification Challenges

For any chipmaker, one of the biggest bottlenecks in getting their chips to market faster is IP Verification. Companies may choose to use pre-verified hard or soft IP developed by the IP providers which are readily available. Or they may choose to develop their own IP verification infrastructure using advanced verification methodologies such as UVM.

At DVClub Bangalore on 11th May, Malathi Chikkanna of Broadcom Limited discussed why reuse is the key for mitigating IP verification challenges irrespective of the approach that is adopted.

Encapsulating Concurrent Assertions in UVM

IP/SoC checks are very important in any verification activity. But class-based system verilog used in UVM does not allow concurrent assertions. Thus, in order to implement concurrent assertions, we require non-class based objects like interfaces. But this creates problems of encapsulation and isolation.

Surinder Sood of SanDisk presented some pragmatic approaches for encapsulation and operation of assertions including mechanisms to make assertions aware of UVM Phases of the class-based environment at the DVClub India Conference-“IP Verification Challenges” on 11 May 2016.

IP Verification Challenges

IP verification is a very challenging process and it involves expending a great deal of effort in technical understanding, planning, and execution. As designs become larger and more complex, the challenge of verification has become even more difficult.

Dinesh Kumar Malviya from Rambus Inc discussed the challenges in IP Verification at the DVClub Bangalore Conference- “IP Verification Challenges” which took place on 11 May 2016.

Slides and recordings from the session are available here.
