“Maintaining ISO 26262 Activities into the SoC Verification Flow” by Kurt Shuler & Diego Botero (Arteris IP)
ISO 26262 compliance requires a new set of activities that are falling into the laps of hardware verification teams. The presenters will describe best practices to automate some aspects of fault injection validation using output from Arteris IP configuration “cockpits” to drive Mentor Kaleidoscope and Questa fault and functional simulation. They will then discuss the EDA industry’s efforts to more fully automate this process so it can be run by the verification team as part of the generalized product development process, with fault injection results flowing into the FMEDA. In addition, the presenters will share lessons learned regarding the process requirements for ISO 26262 (confirmation measures, etc.) that affect many verification work products (verification plans, results, logging, etc.). Verification teams are often shocked about how much more documentation they need at higher quality/completeness levels to be ISO 26262 compliant!
- Kurt Shuler is the Functional Safety Manager and a vice president at Arteris IP with 20+ years’ experience in design IP, semiconductor, and software in the automotive, mobile, consumer, and enterprise segments, having served in senior executive and product management roles at Intel, Texas Instruments, ARC International and four technology startups. He is a member of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to the ISO 26262 TC22/SC3/WG16 working group, helping create automotive functional safety standards for semiconductors and semiconductor IP, and was one of the semiconductor design IP experts contributing to the writing of the new ISO 26262:2018 2nd Edition Part 11. He has extensive experience in aviation electronics operational testing, software quality process implementation, and functional safety requirements writing. Before working in high technology, Kurt flew as an air commando in the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Forces. Kurt earned a B.S. in Aeronautical Engineering from the United States Air Force Academy and an M.B.A. from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
- Diego Botero is a Functional Safety Engineer and Corporate Application Engineer at Arteris IP. Prior to joining Arteris IP, he worked in the development of safety critical embedded systems under ECSS for the ESA Space rockets and DO-254 for the Embraer KC-390 aircraft. Diego also worked previously on SoC architecture projects for Automotive and Aerospace applications. He has a Ph.D. degree in embedded systems and robotics from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) in Toulouse, France.
