Conference Chairman
Riccardo Mariani,
VP Industry Safety

"I am excited to have all the experts on semiconductor FuSa joining this conference with me as it will be a unique opportunity to spread out knowledge and having exclusive insights on that very hot and important topic. The continuous progress on ADAS and autonomous cars brings great opportunities. However, at the same time the complexity of H/W and S/W elements involved in those architectures is exponentially growing, causing new technical challenges and liability concerns. This is the reason why Functional Safety (FuSa) is so important because it addresses those concerns by a combination of requirements, guidelines, techniques and methodologies. Starting from the work done in ISO/PAS 19451-1, the 2nd edition of ISO 26262 is adding an important focus to semiconductors with a dedicated part (ISO 26262-11) on 'Guideline on application of ISO 26262 to semiconductors'"

Beyond the marketing hype: How to create a truly valuable product that meets the car makers expectations.

ISO 26262 3rd edition: How can ISO 26262 reflect the real progression of automotive innovation in its 3rd and most anticipated edition; from AI considerations to machine learning and predictive failure analysis as some core discussion points

Compliance and assurance in your toolset: Mitigating risks caused by multiple tools in development and V&V by creating a seamless toolchain for internal and externally developed tools

Filling the hole in Safety Case Arguments: Not with assumptions but with what the customers really want: Experiences shared in dealing with NDA and minimum communication between car maker and semiconductor manufacturers

Supporting FMEA and FMDA by progressing to predictive failure analysis: How to utilize big data from multiple data logs and sets of different product lines to identify failure trends and rates in semiconductor devices by introducing ML strategies to create a collaborative network of information

Safety mechanisms and redundancy in AI driven systems: How to bring down functional safety costs associated with high amount of safety mechanisms needed in processor units for autonomous drive and automated applications

Legacy designs in SEooC: How to capitalize in software elements developed for a non-automotive environment and how can you ensure ISO 26262 compliance retrospectively

Featured Speakers

Featured case studies:

Failure Mode Distribution – A frequently discussed topic without a standard solution

The ISO 26262 does not provide a best practice for distributing failure modes, especially when talking about semiconductors. Therefore, a detailed analysis of all safety-related blocks upon their failure modes shall be performed as a preparative step for an FMEDA.

Implementation challenges for coexistence of safety and security related applications within an Automotive MCU/SoC

While safety measures such as End-to-End protection are well-established for in-vehicle communication, security measures are rapidly becoming an additional and a mandatory design requirement. The challenge of addressing combined automotive safety and security use-cases will be discussed and Best Practice examples provided. - Renesas

Challenges related to autonomous driving and how ISO 26262 (and its new part 11) can help

 Autonomous driving is a reality with several automation levels being addressed today. However, ISO26262, even in its 2nd edition, has constraints to respect and cannot always help.
