Course Overview

kVA’s new two-day training course, “Semiconductor Functional Safety Based on ISO 26262,” is designed for engineers seeking to successfully apply ISO 26262 to their safety-related semiconductor programs.

The training starts with a short overview of key concepts of ISO 26262 parts 1-10, followed by in-depth discussion of all key topics in ISO 26262 Part 11 (PAS 19451). kVA’s expert instructors will describe functional safety for a wide range of semiconductor products including microcontrollers, analog and mixed-signal designs, FPGAs, and IPs. Functional safety analyses such as DFAs and FMEDAs are presented from a semiconductor viewpoint, including worked examples of DFA and FMEDAs. Emerging frameworks for Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF), for example from the draft ISO 21448 standard, will also be addressed.
