Synopsys has announced the DesignWare® tRoot™ Hardware Secure Module (HSM) and ARC® SEM130FS Safety and Security Processor IP with integrated functional safety features to accelerate ISO 26262 certification of automotive systems-on-chips (SoCs).
The ASIL B compliant tRoot HSM for Automotive adds hardware safety mechanisms for protection against permanent, transient and latent faults to its security system that includes an ARC processor, scalable side-channel resistant cryptography, true random number generator and security-enabled external memory controllers. The ASIL D compliant ARC SEM130FS Processor adds safety-critical hardware features such as dual-core lockstep to meet stringent automotive safety requirements. Both the products are supported by comprehensive safety documentation, including failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) reports that facilitate chip- and system-level ISO 26262 ASIL B or ASIL D compliance.
"Security attacks on safety-critical ADAS, telematics, radar, V2X communications, and industrial systems are on the rise, and designers need to find ways to implement advanced security while eliminating points of failure," said Wolfgang Ruf, product manager, semiconductors at SGS-TÜV Saar GmbH. "By extending its DesignWare tRoot HSM and ARC SEM Processor IP to include functional safety mechanisms, Synopsys is enabling designers to more easily deliver SoCs that meet their customers' ASIL requirements and secure high-value data and communication from attacks.”
