Draft of Accellera Security Annotation for Electronic Design Integration (SA-EDI) Standard 1.0 Now Available for Public Review from the IP Security Assurance Working Group

What:

Elk Grove, Calif., April 6, 2021 — Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, announced today the availability of the Security Annotation for Electronic Design Integration (SA-EDI) Draft Standard 1.0 for public review. Download the draft standard here.

About:

The SA-EDI draft standard was developed by the IP Security Assurance Working Group to address security concerns for hardware and software IP in a manner that is low-overhead, non-disruptive, and scalable across multiple target implementations. It specifies an approach to provide information about the security properties of IP; this information is relevant to the integrator and provides recommended solutions to address risks. The working group’s focus is on utilizing existing standards that pertain to IP specification, design, verification, and integration where security risk is a concern, as well as known security concerns that have been identified by either industry experience or security researchers.

The objectives of the SA-EDI standard include:

  • Offering IP providers a standardized means to disclose relevant security properties for the integrator to consider for integration
  • Assisting IP integrators in understanding and reducing security risk
  • Accelerating tool development to facilitate security assurance automation

When:

The Public review is open through May 21, 2021.

How to participate and influence the standard:

The IP Security Assurance Working Group invites and encourages the community to participate in the review and provide feedback through Accellera’s SA-EDI 1.0 Community Forum.

For more information on the working group and to view additional resources, including a whitepaper and recording of a workshop presented at DVCon U.S. 2021, visit the IP Security Assurance Working Group page.

Understanding Functional Safety FIT Base Failure Rate Estimates per IEC 62380 and SN 29500

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require semiconductor device manufacturers to address both systematic and random hardware failures. Base failure rates (BFR) quantify the intrinsic reliability of the semiconductor component while operating under normal environmental conditions. Download our white paper which focuses on two widely accepted techniques to estimate the BFR for semiconductor components; estimates per IEC Technical Report 62380 and SN 29500 respectively.
