Andes Technology has launched a safety-enhanced 32bit RISC-V CPU IP that it says is the first to be certified as fully compliant with ISO 26262 functional safety standards for the development of automotive applications
It is also planning a version with DSP extensions for higher performance early next year.
The AndesCore N25F-SE was assessed by SGS-TÜV Saar for ASIL B (Automotive Safety Integrity Level B) applications, according to all applicable ISO 26262 series of standards including Parts 2, 4, 5, 8 and 9. Andes says all the configurable options are also fully certified so that chip design teams are not limited by one fixed CPU configuration.
