Functional safety verification builds safer cars

 Functional safety verification builds safer cars
All chip designers set out to develop chips without bugs, but the stakes are much higher for those working on automotive designs. A cell phone crash may cause a reboot, but a bug in an advanced driver assistance system, such as lane keeping, may cause another kind of crash – with much more serious consequences. Author: Brian Davenport, Staff Engineer, Synopsys’ Verification Group
