Synopsys Introduces DesignWare ARC EM SEP Processor for Safety-Compliant Automotive Systems

Synopsys, Inc. today announced availability of the new DesignWare ARC EM SEP (Safety Enhancement Package) Processor core for automotive safety-compliant applications. The 32-bit ARC EM SEP processor is based on the highly efficient ARC EM4 core. It delivers performance up to 300 MHz and power consumption as low as 16 mW/MHz on typical 65-nanometer (nm) low power silicon processes, with integrated hardware safety features that enable ASIL D compliance in support of the ISO 26262 standard. In addition, the DesignWare ARC MetaWare Compiler helps software developers accelerate the development of ISO 26262-compliant code and is undergoing ASIL D readiness certification by SGS-TUV Saar, a leading independent safety certification company. The combination of a safety-enhanced processor and compiler makes the ARC EM SEP core ideally suited for system-on-chips (SoCs) designed for embedded automotive applications such as movement and acceleration sensors, advanced driver assistance systems and electric power steering.

Mazda Adopts Synopsys' Virtual Prototyping Solution for Electronic Control Unit Verification

Synopsys, Inc today announced that Mazda Motor Corporation, a leading producer of automobiles, has adopted Synopsys' CoMET-METeor virtual prototyping solution to verify their Electronic Control Units (ECUs). Over the last year, Mazda has been using the METeor embedded software development environment to conduct its ECU system verification in a virtual environment. By decreasing the number of tests on real automobiles and hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS) test equipment, the virtual prototyping solution will enable Mazda to save significant time and cost. Mazda has been using the CoMET virtual prototype design tool to create accurate models for normally dangerous live tests and difficult to reproduce conditions, and to enhance levels of safety, reliability and quality.
