The ROHM flow, which achieved ASIL D certification from TÜV Rheinland utilises Cadence fault injection simulation technology, which can reduce the effort required to complete the safety verification process by up to half.
The ROHM flow used Cadence Incisive functional safety technology to achieve ASIL D certification. Software validation of the Safety Verification component was critical in meeting TÜV Rheinland’s certification requirements. Cadence fault simulation technology addresses many complexities associated with automotive design verification. The simulator allows for successful fault effect analysis for various fault modes, including single event transient (SET), single event upset (SEU), stuck-at 0/stuck-at 1, and dual-point faults, while outperforming existing design-for-test (DFT)-based flows for safety-related fault effect analysis.
