The IP comes certified with safety packages, FMEDA and safety manuals to accelerate SoC-level ISO 26262 functional safety assessments. The IP range now includes ASIL B and D Ready ISO 26262 certified DesignWare IP comprising PCI Express 3.1 controller and PHY, USB 3.0 controller, MIPI CSI-2 controllers and D-PHY, LPDDR4 PHY, EEPROM and Trim NVM (non-volattile memory). The IP was certified by SGS-TÜV Saar, an independent training, testing and certification organization serving the automotive industry. The certified IP consists of automotive safety packages that include failure modes, effects, and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) reports and safety manuals, giving designers the documentation needed to complete their own certification process. By providing ASIL B and D Ready IP, Synopsys aims to assist designers with their ISO 26262 functional safety assessments and reach automotive safety integrity levels (ASILs) required for their automotive SoCs.


Synopsys DesignWare IP for automotive SoCs includes safety features such as:

– Error correcting code (ECC) protection for detecting and correcting transient and permanent errors

– Parity protection on data path and configuration registers for ensuring correct data is carried through the SoC

– Debug capabilities, error injection and statistics monitoring for comprehensive system testing

– Diagnostic circuits to periodically test for errors that violate safety goals


In addition to ASIL Ready certified IP, Synopsys provides the necessary design failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA) reports and implements organizations, policies and processes to meet automotive quality requirements. The IP is designed for high-reliability and tested against applicable AEC-Q100 specifications, enabling designers to reduce design risk and development time for achieving AEC-Q100 qualification.
