Fault Injection Engine Forms the Basis of Unique Hard and Soft Error Automated Fault Analysis Solutions Accelerating ISO 26262 Verification and Increasing Device Quality
NAZARETH, ISRAEL – October 29, 2019 – Optima Design Automation today rolled out its next-generation Optima Safety Platform, (OSP), based on its Fault Injection Engine (FIE™) technology. OSP includes Optima’s first two automated solutions: Optima-HE™ and Optima-SE™ for hard-error and soft-error analysis, respectively. By increasing fault analysis performance by orders of magnitude over the next fastest solution, Optima offers its customers a reduction in analysis time from months to days, as well as automated coverage improvement and design safety.
OSP has been shown in private benchmarks to increase fault analysis performance more than two orders of magnitude over its nearest rival. To date, fault analysis of large automotive safety critical devices, as stipulated by the ISO 26262 standard, can require months of compute time to perform. By reducing this time to a matter of days or hours, new forms of analysis can be performed that dramatically improve device safety and quality while ensuring an accurate measure of fault resistance. The addition of Optima’s automated CoverageMaximizer™ technology allows for design areas not analyzed during verification to be easily eliminated, further improving the analysis process.
