Accellera’s Functional Safety Working Group Addresses Standardization Efforts to Improve Automation, Interoperability, and Traceability
Chair:
Alessandra Nardi - Accellera Systems Initiative, Berkeley, CA
Organizer:
Barbara Benjamin - Accellera Systems Initiative, Portland, OR
Accellera Systems Initiative, the electronics industry organization focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, recently formed the Functional Safety Working Group (FSWG). Its mission 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 for your virtual lunch break 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.
