Synopsys Inc. has revealed that the main devices in its line-up of functional safety verification solutions are now certified for the ISO 26262 automotive functional safety standard. Following an industry-standard Functional Safety Tool Qualification, SGS-TUV Saar GmbH formally certified VCS Functional Verification solution, Certitude functional qualification solution and Verdi Debug solution with verification planning and coverage.

The ISO 26262 certification provides SoC and IP teams with the highest Tool Confidence Level (TCL1) to use the Synopsys verification solution for safety-critical automotive applications and accelerate functional safety qualification for automotive ICs, up to the stringent requirements for ASIL D.

"The ISO 26262 certification was issued based on a successful Functional Safety Tool Qualification of Synopsys' verification solution including VCS, Certitude, Verdi Planner and coverage technology," said Gudrun Neumann, functional safety team leader, software at SGS-TUV Saar. "With this certification, SoC and IP teams can use Synopsys' verification solution with full confidence (TCL1) for safety-critical automotive applications, to meet their overall functional safety requirements."

Automotive electronic systems continue to grow rapidly in complexity and size. As a result, safety verification is emerging as a critical requirement for automotive SoC and IP designs. The ISO 26262 standard outlines a set of stringent requirements, with ASIL D being the most stringent level that must be adhered to while developing functionally safe automotive ICs and SoCs. This includes the qualification of EDA software products being used.
