Siemens Digital Industries Software Mentor Achieves ISO 26262 Qualification for Oasys-RTL, Nitro-SoC and FormalPro Tool Reports
Mentor, a Siemens business, has further expanded its Mentor Safe functional safety assurance program by qualifying the ISO 26262 compliance of documentation for its Oasys-RTL Physical RTL Synthesis, Nitro-SoC Place and Route, and FormalPro Logic Equivalency Checker products.
These three digital implementation and verification solutions are the latest additions to the fast-growing Mentor Safe program, which is one of the industry’s broadest and most comprehensive ISO 26262 qualification initiatives. Mentor Safe enables customers to integrate Mentor tools and software into their safety-critical design and verification flows at all criticality levels from ASIL A to ASIL D.
Mentor’s tool qualification documentation provides the information necessary to properly evaluate use cases and confidence levels, speeding qualification cycles for automotive OEMs and their semiconductor suppliers. The reports demonstrate that the software tools are suitable to be used for any tool confidence level (TCL) activity or task required by the ISO 26262 standard.
“Achieving ISO 26262 qualification for our RTL-to-GDS implementation solutions is imperative for our automotive customers to seamlessly design their products,” said Shankar Krishnamoorthy, general manager of Mentor’s IC Design Solutions Division. “The ISO 26262 qualification of documentation for these products enables our customers to streamline critical IC design tasks while meeting the automotive industry’s stringent functional safety requirements.”
Oasys-RTL provides high capacity, fast RTL physical synthesis and RTL level floorplanning capabilities, while FormalPro delivers unmatched capacity and runtimes with its distributed architecture for logic equivalency checks of advanced automotive designs. Mentor’s Nitro-SoC Place and Route system enables Netlist-to-GDS digital implementation of automotive designs and delivers optimal power, performance and area with a simple out-of-the-box reference flow.
Mentor is a long-established automotive systems supplier, engaged with nearly every leading OEM and Tier 1 supplier, and providing design tools and embedded software in the areas of connectivity, electrification, autonomous drive and vehicle architecture. The company also offers a broad portfolio of ISO 26262-compliant tools for the design and creation of automotive-grade ICs. Mentor’s distinguished track record in supplying automotive-grade electrical and electronic systems spans nearly 30 years.
Mentor Safe products will ship with comprehensive enablement collateral providing descriptions and best practices information in the use of program-qualified products.
