Synopsys says Mobileye has selected its Z01X functional safety verification solution to meet ISO 26262 automotive safety compliance for the next generation of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) SoCs (System on a Chip Systems).

“Our fourth-generation product, EyeQ4, is a high performance and complex SoC, that must meet the stringent demands of the ISO 26262 functional safety standard,” said Mobileye SVP engineering, Elchanan Rushinek.

“Mobileye employed the Z01X solution to allow us to reach our safety-related fault injection campaign goals in less time than competing software tools.”

The Synopsys Z01X fault simulation solution is the result of ten years of collaboration with automotive companies in fault injection testing. The Z01X solution’s performance is the direct result of its concurrent fault simulation algorithm.

This algorithm enables thousands of faults to be simulated concurrently on each available processor, for significant speed up of the verification process. Additionally, the Z01X solution supports all permanent and transient fault models required by the ISO 26262 automotive functional safety standard.

“Synopsys has developed a comprehensive functional safety verification solution by closely collaborating with automotive SoC market-makers for their next-generation SoCs,” said Synopsys VP engineering Verification Group, Debashis Chowdhury.

“Through our continued R&D collaboration, we address the increasingly stringent functional safety requirements for the growing complexity of automotive SoCs.”

Data from just-auto’s QUBE service shows to deliver to OEMs, Mobileye has partnered with a number of Tier 1s, including Leopold Kostal, Delphi, TRW, Mando, Valeo and Magna.

On the back of increasing interest in its technology solutions, Mobileye posted an extremely strong set of results for 2015.

Revenue increased by 68% to US$240.9m, which followed a 77% increase in the prior year to US$143.6m and non-GAAP net income rose by 142.3% to US$113.4m). Sales directly to OEMs accounted for 84% of revenues in 2015.
