Mentor Graphics expands ISO 26262 Qualification Program

January 12, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Mentor Safe is what EDA company Mentor Graphics claims to be one of the industry’s broadest and most comprehensive ISO 26262 qualification programs.

The program includes the company's Nucleus SafetyCert real time operating system, the Volcano VSTAR AUTOSAR operating system and BSW stack, and a growing array of ISO 26262 certified documentation and qualification reports for Mentor tools supporting SoC design and verification, mechanical and thermal applications.

The Mentor Safe program enables customers to integrate Mentor tools and software into their safety-critical designs and verification flows at all criticality levels up to and including ASIL D.

The latest design automation products certified under the Mentor Safe program are from the company’s portfolio of Tessent silicon test and yield analysis tools. Independent compliance firm SGS-TUV Saar recently certified the Software Tool Qualification Reports for nine Tessent solutions for any tool confidence level (TCL).

Mentor Safe products will ship with comprehensive enablement collateral providing descriptions and best practices information in the use of program-qualified products.
