Enabling Safety & Reliability for Automotive
and Enterprise Computing

The FlexNoC® FuSa option enhances the FlexNoC fabric IP with essential hardware reliability and functional safety features, tailored for ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliance in automotive applications enterprise SSD endurance for data center applications. As SoCs evolve, mere CPU duplication and memory protection fall short of stringent safety standards; comprehensive chip data protection becomes vital. Opting for a hardware-centric approach offers more straightforward development, superior quality, and enhanced control than software-only methods. The FuSa option offers extensive features and documentation tailored to meet these rigorous safety requirements. Features include ECC, support for ARM Cortex, unit redundancy, and built-in self-tests.

It is specifically engineered to support customers in reaching up to ASIL-D, the highest level of functional safety.
