Arbe Robotics selects Synopsys IP help making its imaging radar ISO26262-compliant

Arbe Robotics selected Synopsys IP for its ASIL D Ready safety features that are well-suited for strict ADAS and autonomous vehicle application requirements. In addition, Synopsys automotive-ready DesignWare IP is supported by comprehensive safety documentation, including failure modes, effects, and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) reports that facilitate chip- and system-level ISO 26262 ASIL D and B compliance.

The ARC EM6SI Safety Island provides capabilities such as integrated self-checking safety monitor, error correcting code (ECC), and programmable watchdog timer. The EV62 Embedded Vision Processor with SEP provides a 512-bit wide SIMD vector DSP, and required functional safety capabilities without sacrificing power, area, and performance.

Both processors feature lockstep capabilities that enable rapid detection of system failures and runtime faults. The ARC MetaWare EV Development Toolkit for Safety enables software developers to generate highly-efficient, ISO 26262-compliant code for their automotive applications. For its real-time networking needs, Arbe Robotics selected Synopsys’ configurable Ethernet QoS Controller IP with safety package, which supports Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) to reliably manage the data stream between connected devices.

In addition, Arbe Robotics selected the DesignWare STAR Memory System and STAR Hierarchical System for comprehensive fault coverage and capability to control in-system test using APB interface. The DesignWare STAR ECC Compilers’ advanced ECC circuitry detects and corrects single-bit and multi-bit upsets to improve reliability during in-field operation.
