SoC Extends Functional Safety In AI Devices

Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family has been assessed as SIL 3, HFT1 capable, according the IEC 61508 functional-safety specification, by Exida functional-safety certification agency. Developers can now build systems including artificial intelligence (AI) for safety-critical applications using the single-chip MPSoC family, with the assurance of IEC 61508 functional-safety certification up to Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL 3). Xilinx has also introduced safety-enhanced automotive-qualified XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs, certified to ISO 26262 ASIL C.

 

Combined with the recent IEC 61508 safety certification of the supporting 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. Moreover, each of the four-leading functional-safety assessment bodies has now indicated acceptance of Xilinx's methodologies for establishing functional safety of monolithic silicon devices and design flows. Developers can find tools and resources to support safety-critical systems design by visiting Xilinx.
