8:00 am - 8:20 am Registration and welcome coffee

The ISO 26262 standard for functional safety in automotive E/E systems so far did not provide clear instructions for semiconductor companies. The freshly added part 11 is dedicated only to the semiconductor industry and aims d closing big gaps. Due to its novelty, part 11 offers quiet a lot of discussion potential on how to interpret and apply it. This panel will address the most important issues.
• The great achievement – Learn to read ISO 26262 part 11
• Application challenges and how to best overcome them
• FMEDA and FTA – Should they stay or should they go now?

Networking session

10:10 am - 10:40 am Coffee break

10:40 am - 11:20 am Scene Setting | From Semiconductor Components to ISO 26262 Compliant Functionally Safe Systems

This presentation will begin by describing how to apply the ISO 26262-11:2018 standard for both semiconductor components developed as part of a compliant item as well as an SEooC. The presenters will then discuss
• How (during Functional Safety Analysis), the semiconductor component is divided into parts, subparts and elementary subparts
• What (and why), is the necessary and sufficient analysis technique?
• HW failure modes and how they relate to both HW faults and errors
• Failure modes, fault models and techniques to distribute base fail rates will be outlined
A case study that tackles mixed-signal fault injection and failure mode distributions will be presented. Finally, a method to leverage component safety analysis to the design and production of functionally safe systems is described.

11:20 am - 12:00 pm Flow for Measuring Diagnostic Coverage in IP Blocks to Reach Target ASILs

Diagnostic coverage is a key metric to achieve target ASILs for safety-critical systems. This
session describes a case study and best practices to determine the required diagnostic coverage
during a fault injection campaign in an IP core. We will detail the methodology and fault injection
flow, including:
• Steps in a fault campaign flow- Input data required for fault injection
• Analysis of the output data for convergence- Issues, challenges, and recommendations

12:00 pm - 12:40 pm Application Specific Safeness Analysis for Semiconductors

Reliability estimation is critical for the safety analysis of cyber-physical systems (e.g. Automotive). With increasing system complexity, meeting functional safety requirements using existing methods is a challenge. This presentation will describe
• An analytical methodology for reliability estimation
• Show results of a practical example on the microarchitecture for Arm CPUs
• This application-specific, fine-grained methodology will enable a reliability aware design process that helps meet functional safety requirements by promoting collaboration between OEMs, Tier1s and Silicon Partners.

12:40 pm - 1:40 pm Network luncheon

1:40 pm - 2:20 pm ISO-26262 for ASIC engineers, introduction

In this presentation we give an introduction for ISO-26262 requirements from semiconductor and IP vendors. The presentation is in the language of the average ASIC design and verification engineers. Then we discuss how Optima’s tools address these requirements.

2:20 pm - 3:00 pm A systematic extraction of failure modes for analogue cricuits

A method is proposed allowing to automatically identify the failure modes of an analogue circuit based on fault-injection simulations. Based on the similarity of the induced faulty behaviors, a clustering is realized and one fault per group is elected as representative of the failure mode.
Modal fault models are then extracted using the wrapper approach.
• Analogue circuits
• Fault-grouping
• Abstract fault models

3:00 pm - 3:40 pm Challenges and opportunities for automotive semiconductor design and verification methodologies

As automotive applications grow in complexity and size, the challenges to support the development of safety critical components are increasing and so are the opportunities. There is a significant need for new design and verification methodologies to fulfill automotive requirements as an integral part of the EDA (Electronic Design Automation) flow for digital, analog, and mixed-signal semiconductors.
• FMEDA meets EDA
• Opportunities for safety optimization
• Challenges of consistency and standardization

4:50 pm - 5:30 pm Functional safety from a system power supply point of view

Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMIC) manage the power requirements of the host system. The PMIC market faces strong trends towards a growing demand for energy-efficient battery-powered devices, as well as increased sales in the automotive sector. This presentation
will cover the main functional safety aspects of PMIC.
• Interaction between Safety PMIC and Safety MCU
• Safety vs. availability
• Fail Silent vs. Fail Operational
