Veriest CEVA Collaborate on Safety Methodology

The methodology will be the topic of a Veriest workshop at the DVCon US 2021 conference

Veriest Solutions, the international Electronics Design Services house, announced that its engineering team has collaborated with CEVA, the leading licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies, to develop a functional safety verification methodology. The purpose of the innovative approach is to implement and verify the proper operation of safety mechanisms required in automotive and other mission-critical applications.

This method was successfully employed initially in a series of advanced DSP and AI IP cores provided by CEVA. It was subsequently also used in CEVA’s SensPro2™, a high-performance sensor hub DSP architecture for processing and fusing data from multiple sensors including camera, Radar, LiDar, Time-of-Flight, microphones and inertial measurement units.

The methodology extends the classical black-box functional verification tree with white-box error generation in a UVM environment. This ensures compliance with ISO 26262 requirements, with stricter rigor and more formalized procedures.

Ran Snir, CEVA’s Vice President of R&D said: “With the increased adoption of our cores in automotive applications, it is fundamental that we thoroughly verify the proper operation of our designs, in multiple scenarios. We have been collaborating with Veriest for many years across different projects, and we’re pleased to have jointly achieved this additional milestone”.

Moshe Zalcberg, CEO of Veriest, added: “Functional safety has become a crucial consideration for our design and verification engineering teams, with more sensing and AI functionality being deployed in vehicles. It was a privilege for Veriest to work with CEVA’s world-class technology experts to define and implement a novel approach for functional safety verification”.

This methodology will be demonstrated by Dr. Mihajlo Katona, a Sr. Verification Team Leader at Veriest, at a dedicated workshop at the DVCon US 2021 conference, taking place virtually on March,1-4.
