Accellera has given the green light to a team to look at tool interoperability for building functionally safe systems.
The organization has set up a proposed working group (PWG) to focus on a standard to enable tool interoperability between tools used to perform failure modes, effects, and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) in electronic circuits and systems.
“Functional safety is a requirement for safety-critical applications,” said Accellera chair Lu Dai. “The purpose of the PWG is to explore industry interest and to determine the level of commitment in moving forward with standardization efforts. Our standardization initiatives are user-driven, and we look forward to feedback from the community in the coming months to help us determine our efforts in this area.”
The first Functional Safety Proposed Working Group meeting will be held Friday December 6 at NXP Semiconductors’ office in Munich and will include presentations on industry best practices and requirements, and will explore directions for standardization. Attendance is open to everyone, but registration is required. Participants in the PWG do not need to be from Accellera member companies.
