"Xilinx has worked with TUV SUD to ease the burden for system design teams that are faced with the selection of system components and design methodologies that meet established industry standards and functional safety design concerns," said Christoph Fritsch, director of industrial, scientific and medical market segments for Xilinx. "By leveraging Xilinx's functional safety design flow solution, system designers can accelerate their certification process, reduce design costs, and ensure their products comply with worldwide standards."

Xilinx's certified functional safety design methodologies allow system designers to deliver highly differentiated, highly integrated safety compliant solutions with the fastest time to market. The Isolation Design Flow (IDF) and Isolation Verification Tools (IVT) provide a unique and automated methodology to separate system- critical and non-system-critical functions within the same FPGA through physical area isolation. The independent designs, in isolated locations, can be changed at any time without impacting other isolated locations, which reduces design complexity and development time.
