An Automated Method for Adding Resiliency to Mission-Critical SoC Designs

Adding safety measures to system-on-chip (SoC) designs in the form of radiation-hardened elements or redundancy is essential in making mission-critical applications in the Aerospace and Defense (A&D), cloud, automotive, robotics, medical, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) industries more resilient against random hardware failures that occur. Designing for reliable and resilient functionality does impact semiconductor development where these safety measures have generally been inserted manually by SoC designers. Manual approaches can often lead to errors that cannot be accounted for. Synopsys has created a fully automated implementation flow to insert various types of safety mechanisms, which can result in more reliable and resilient mission-critical SoC designs.

This paper discusses the process of implementing the safety mechanisms/measures (SM) in the design to make them more resilient and analyze their effectiveness from design inception to the final product.
