Accellera at Virtual DAC 2020

Accellera’s Functional Safety Working Group Addresses Standardization Efforts to Improve Automation, Interoperability, and Traceability

DACThursday, July 23

We invite you to join us for our virtual lunch break at DAC focused on Functional Safety. The mission of our recently formed Functional Safety Working Group (FSWG) is to develop a standard to provide a comprehensive and unified definition of the Functional Safety intent to improve automation, interoperability, and traceability across the Functional Safety development lifecycle of electronic circuits and systems.

Join us as we present an overview of the scope, needs, and goals defined by the FSWG including developments since its formation. Introductions by Lu Dai, Accellera’s Chair, Martin Barnasconi, Technical Committee Chair, and Alessandra Nardi, FSWG Chair, are followed by several informative presentations by functional safety experts focusing on specific perspectives, challenges, and opportunities. You have an opportunity at the end of the presentations to ask questions of the participants during a live Q&A session. Speakers include Bala Chavali, RAS Architect - Principal Member of Technical Staff, AMD; Ghani Kanawati, Technical Director of Functional Safety, Arm; Jyotika Athavale, Principal Engineer and Lead Platform Technologist, Intel; Franck Galtié, Director Automotive Functional Safety, NXP Semiconductors; and Riccardo Vincelli, Director of Functional Safety Competence Center, Renesas.
