With intelligence being added to vehicles at an unprecedented rate, the opportunities for automotive silicon have never been greater. These autonomous systems require both functional verification and functional safety verification. While many semiconductor teams have established methodologies for functional verification, functional safety verification methodology is new or in development. As such, these teams need to learn about the importance of fault injection for semiconductors based on the ISO 26262 functional safety standard for road vehicles. But this knowledge is more than just a brute-force approach to measuring fault propagation. The teams need to understand when fault injection and expert judgement are important and how fault injection is significant for achieving the targeted Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) for SoCs.

This tutorial is targeted to verification methodology experts, safety experts, verification engineers, and project leads that need to implement functional safety verification or make their existing process more efficient. During the tutorial we will examine the requirements identified in the standard, the connection of those requirements to the functional verification flow for a unified methodology, and the implementation of those requirements in tools including fault simulation, automated fault characterization, safety verification campaign management, formal analysis of fault lists and results, plus more. Attendees will leave with new knowledge they can apply to fault optimization, fault analysis, traceability and congruence with the functional verification flow to provide efficiency for functional safety verification.
