Title: Game-changing solutions for developing functionally-safe automotive designs


Safety-critical and autonomous systems are becoming prevalent as well as increasingly complex, and meeting test and safety requirements for these systems is a growing challenge. The ISO 26262 standard, which mandates risk reduction of bodily harm, requires a process of analysis, measurement, and design for functional safety. Achieving functional safety metric goals starts with design teams performing early analysis, which then drives design changes to ensure long-term safety and reliability. Design changes to improve functional safety often includes incorporating functional safety mechanisms to ensure faults causing safety critical failures can be detected or controlled. This presentation will focus on advances being made in Functional Safety Analysis and Built-in Self-test and how these solutions address these testing requirements.
