Semiconductor Engineering: Safety Islands In Safety-Critical Hardware

 Arteris IP's Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing, authored this latest article in Semiconductor Engineering, from a joint Arm, Arteris IP and Dream Chip presentation at Arm TechCon 2019:

Safety Islands In Safety Critical Hardware

November 7th, 2019 - By Kurt Shuler

Creating a reliable place to manage critical functions when a design contains a mix of ASILs.

 

Safety and security have certain aspects in common so it shouldn’t be surprising that some ideas evolving in one domain find echoes in the other. In hardware design, a significant trend has been to push security-critical functions into a hardware root-of-trust (HRoT) core, following a philosophy of putting all (or most) of those functions in one basket and watching that basket very carefully. A somewhat similar principle applies for safety islands in safety-critical designs, in this case a core which will continue to function safely under all possible circumstances. The objective is the same – a reliable center for managing critical behavior, though from there the implementation details diverge.

SemiWiki: Supporting ASIL-D Through Your Network on Chip

Kurt Shuler, VP Marketing at Arteris IP has written a White-Paper 'How to efficiently achieve ASIL-D compliance using NoC technology', and discusses the details with Bernard Murphy in this SemiWiki blog:

Supporting ASIL-D Through Your Network on Chip 

September 20th,  2018 - By Bernard Murphy

ASIL-D compliance for safety (the top-level of safety)  in automotive applications has become much more prominent as a requirement than we might have expected. Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki) provides his take after reading Kurt Shuler’s white-paper on how the NoC interconnect connecting IPs can help meet this goal and why this approach to safety in integration is more efficient than some frequently discussed alternatives.
