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 [...]
