The automotive industry uses safety standards for obvious reasons. With the new surge of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and other electronic-rich capabilities, electronic chips are taking over partial (or even complete) control of the car. As a result, the producers of silicon and SW components are now faced with meeting these standards, too, which can often be a daunting and overwhelming task for the uninitiated. Optima provides the full solution to meet these stringent needs.
The quality requirements for HW components that wish to be used in an automotive product are documented in the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standard 26262: “Road vehicles – Functional safety”. It is an adaptation of the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standard 61508: “Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety-related Systems”. With Optima, you can accelerate your path to compliance.
Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) is a risk classification scheme defined by the ISO 26262 – Functional Safety for Road Vehicles standard. These levels, ranging from A to D, are established by performing a risk analysis of a potential hazard by looking at the Severity, Exposure and Controllability of the vehicle operating scenario. Optima not helps in determining the ASIL level but goes beyond to generate the audit reports required.
AUTOMATED COVERAGE MANAGEMENT
Our platform facilitates full coverage management. We go well beyond the reporting to allow you to set your coverage and safety goals. Finally, we provide mechanisms to automatically raise your overall coverage with minimal silicon cost and effort.
EXHAUSTIVE FAULT SIMULATION
We are the only solution that offers fault simulation in 1/10,000th the time of current simulation technology. Most solutions in the market provide very low sampling rates in the range of 1 in 10,000 as compared to Optima’s exhaustive fault simulation.
