The automotive market is moving towards electrification and autonomous driving. This trend needs ADAS electronic systems capable of making decisions. To manage the risk of operations, the development of these systems follows the highest ISO26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL D). All safety electronic systems require a safety microcontroller and a reliable, safe source of power management connected to the car battery: this is the System Basis Chip (SBC). Safety microcontrollers and safety system basis chips are the backbone of embedded system architectures. In this presentation, you’ll review the latest functional safety innovations at the power management level (SBC), from the development phase to system design, underscoring the link to reliability and how to enable hardware that is safety ready. A short introduction to the fault tolerant system will be also presented.
