VeriSilicon, a Silicon Platform as a Service (SiPaaS) company, has said that its Image Signal Processor (the Vivante ISP) IP ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 has achieved ISO 26262 certification.

The processor has been designed for advanced and high-performance camera applications, and has been certified ASIL-B as Safety Element out of Context (SEooC) in compliance with the ISO 26262 standard.

The certification has been issued by leading safety consultancy company ResilTech.

The certification is being described by the company as a key milestone as it looks to target highly safe applications such as Driver Monitoring Systems and Autonomous Vehicles.

The certified ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 supports dual real-time cameras and can reach up to 600 MegaPixel/s throughput rate. It integrates multi-exposure HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing and advanced noise reduction in both spatial and temporal domains. Following ISO 26262 development process and with functional safety equipped, the ISP8000L-FSV5.0.0 can provide high quality and reliable camera processing for automotive systems.

Commenting Wei-Jin Dai, Executive VP and GM of IP Division at VeriSilicon, said, “Functionally safe SoCs are the key technology to fuel the growth of electric vehicles and autonomous driving, which is a fast-growing segment with many innovations. In our automotive customer base, we see high demand for ISO 26262 compliant IPs as well as ASICs. ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 IP is the first VeriSilicon IP to reach ISO 26262 certification; subsequently, other VeriSilicon IPs, including VPU, Display Processor, NPU, GPU and DSP, will also reach ISO 26262 certification.”
