Market Challenge and Opportunity
Autonomous-driving is changing the car into supercomputer on wheels, with tens of electronic chips working together in harmony to drive the car. This has triggered a vast expansion in the automotive-semiconductor market, with many chip and IP vendors fighting to capture a sizable share of this hot market.
Functional Safety is a main challenge chip-designers need to overcome to enter automotive semiconductor market, as these chips need to meet the requirements of ISO-26262, to be used in a cars. However, existing market tools are too slow and not adequate, preventing chip-designers from achieving ASIL-C and ASIL-D.
Optima is changing that, with a set of tools, methodologies and services to help chip-designer achieve ASIL-D on their biggest, most complex and hairiest chips and IPs.
