Course Overview

Semiconductor Automotive Functional Safety training is a three-day training & certification course hosted in partnership with SGS-TÜV.

Training Schedule

Day 1

Introduction to Semiconductor Development

The first day of training will address objectives & strategies for safe semiconductor development according to the second edition of the ISO 26262 standard. Topics include Functional Safety Management and how to build an SEooC framework for semiconductor elements.

  • Introduction to Functional Safety & ISO 26262
  • Functional Safety Management
  • QM Supporting Processes
  • Confidence in the Use of Software Tools
  • Introduction into Design Verification
  • Usage/Qualification of Legacy Components
  • Difference in SEiC & SEooC Developments

Day 2

Compliant Interpretation of ISO 26262 for Semiconductor Development

On the second day, kVA will discuss selected safety mechanisms for IC & IP level semiconductors covered by Part 11. Participants will step through a semiconductor development project and learn how to apply the new ISO 26262 Part 11 to safety-related activities.

  • Overview of Semiconductor Safety Lifecycle
  • Semiconductor Development Project Exercise
  • Initiation Activities
  • Necessary Assumptions
  • Technical Safety Requirements at System & Hardware Level
  • Design and Verification by FMEDA
  • Test & Production

Day 3

Supporting Processes & Optional SC-AFSP Personal Certification Exam

On the final day, kVA will present basics about FMEDAs for ICs & IPs. Then in the afternoon participants will have the option to achieve “Semiconductor Automotive Functional Safety Professional” qualification by SGS-TÜV Saar. This one hour written exam consists of all multiple-choice questions.

  • Wrap-Up & Discussion
  • Optional SC-AFSP Personal Certification Exam
