The Rambus CSI-2 Transmitter (Tx) Controller has received ISO-26262 functional safety certification at the Automotive Safety Integrity Level B (ASIL-B) from TÜV-SGS. Rambus also offers a corresponding ISO-26262 ASIL-B ready CSI-2 Receiver (Rx) Controller. These controllers enable automotive chip makers to meet vehicle functional safety requirements with state-of-the-art performance and reduced time to market.
ASIL-B is a functional safety risk assessment system specified as part of the ISO-26262 functional safety standard. ASIL levels are determined through the analysis of potential functional safety hazards and their system impact including severity, detectability and recoverability. The results of this assessment are documented in the form of a Safety Manual, FMEDA Safety Analysis and other supporting documentation. In addition, the development processes used in the creation of the CSI-2 Tx and Rx Controllers have also been certified by TÜV-SGS to be in accordance with ISO 26262 ASIL-B.
