Siemens buys expert for Functional Safety IP

Jun. 27, 2018 – 

Siemens has signed a takeover agreement with Austemper Design Systems Inc., a startup company focused on functional safety as defined by ISO26262, to enable fault simulation in much less time than available solutions.

Austemper is active in the fields of analysis, autocorrection and simulation. The company's technology enables customers to test and validate the functional safety of IC designs - an essential requirement for numerous applications in the automotive, aerospace and other industrial sectors, where functional safety and maximum reliability are essential to meet the strict requirements of safety standards such as ISO 26262.

The reliability of integrated circuits used in these applications must be verified in three different ways: Detection of systemic errors, malicious errors and random hardware errors. The Questa software from Siemens company Mentor is considered a leading technology for the verification of system errors and also offers verification solutions for malicious errors that impair IC security. Austemper's software technology complements Mentor's verification platform with technologies for security analysis, autocorrection and fault simulation to detect random hardware faults. It thus complements the existing spectrum of mentor software tools in the area of functional safety.
