Presentation Title:Functional Safety in Hardware Verification (working title)
Abstract:Despite being several years old, with a revision actively being worked on, the ISO26262 standard is still an unknown or very new and frightening mystery to many IC/IP designers and verifiers. It is definitively a broad standard, which can be read in multiple ways and at multiple levels, but it inherits from exiting best practices and standards like IEC61508. In any case, the ISO26262 is built on a few fundamental and structuring ideas which should guide all the designers and verifiers of safety related elements. They will be highlighted together with a perspective on tool qualification, on functional and safety verification.

  • ISO26262 Essence
  • Systematic & random faults
  • Tool qualification
