Equivalence Check Satisfies Safety Verification IEC61508 for Robotics
In this session, Jim Henson, Product Marketing Manager at Mentor Graphics discusses IEC 61508, "Functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems." This standard is a product oriented (hardware/software) functional safety standard created by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). A robotics control system manufacturer using programmable FPGA devices for safety logic is required to comply with IEC61508 in order to deliver to an EU customer. Mentor's FormalPro Equivalence Check tool is used to prove that the final FPGA netlist is equivalent to the design-level RTL which satisfies the safety requirement..
Methodologies, tools, and flows for processes such as design synthesis for FPGAs must take DO-254 or design assurance requirements into consideration if the end products are slated for safety-critical applications....…View On-demand Web Seminar
