Verification Of Functional Safety

  • Brian Bailey, 25th Jan 2018

Functional safety is becoming a key part of chip design, and an increasingly problematic one for many engineering teams.

In this Semiconductor Engineering article, NetSpeed's Product Marketing Manager, Rajesh Ramanujam shares his observations on the subject:

Rajesh: “A lot of semiconductor and IP companies tend to focus on functionality and as a result, safety becomes an add-on. It is a step-child. Apart from performance and area degradation that is associated with this approach, it can have a negative impact on the functional safety integrity levels that you can achieve. Safety has to be considered a first-class issue, both from project planning perspective and throughout the development process.”
