We are announcing the industry’s first ASIL D Ready embedded vision processor: https://www.synopsys.com/company/newsroom/mnr/asil-d-ev6x-vision-processor-sep.html
Embedded vision processors allow for rapid, local detection of items in a field of vision for an optical, radar, or other sensor. It’s used in car safety systems and autonomous vehicles because it provides faster feedback for warning or collision avoidance.
ASIL D is the Automotive Safety Integrity Level, and there are four levels (A, B, C, D). It measures the ability to find single or multiple faults. ASIL D is the highest, most stringent level of safety. It is required for systems that, if they fail, someone could die. The EV processors are available in ASIL A, B, C or D to fit the application’s requirements.
To achieve ASIL D, a system needs 99% coverage of the possible faults.
