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 was at DVClub Europe Conference on 28th November 2017 and explained how APIS IQ features are innovatively used to identify the potential random hardware faults which can disrupt the function of a design, leading to a failure to meet a safety goal and provided a suggestion on how to link this conceptual analysis to design and verification plans, thus closing the gap between architecture and verification.
