Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ products assessed to SIL 3

Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ products assessed to SIL 3

By eeNews Europe

The assessment means that the single-chip MPSoC family can now be used in safety-critical applications with the assurance of IEC 61508 functional-safety certification up to Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL 3).

The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family implements isolated function domains on a single die with hardware protection mechanisms, creating the required hardware fault tolerance consistent with on-chip redundancy (HFT=1). The embedded FPGA fabric can be used to accelerate performance beyond conventional software-based systems to achieve the fast response times and low latency typically required of safety-critical systems. Xilinx also offers safety-enhanced automotive-qualified XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs, certified to ISO 26262 ASIL C.

Combined with the IEC 61508 safety certification for Vivado Design Suite by TÜV Süd and the MicroBlaze compiler for additional soft processors by SGS-TÜV Saar, Xilinx now provides a complete ecosystem based on robust design flows that includes supporting documentation, assessment reports, and IP to minimize risks for customers.
