Lattice Semiconductor is pleased to announce that the Lattice Diamond FPGA design and verification software environment (version 3.10, Service Pack 3) is certified as compliant with the IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 functional safety standards. These standards have gained increasing importance, as OEMs require mission-critical systems used in industrial and automotive applications, considering the potential risk to life through even the most minimal system failures. 

Jatinder P. Singh, marketing manager of automotive at Lattice Semiconductor, said: “As automotive and industrial developers integrate more electronics into their system designs, they require more hardware options to choose from to better address specific application requirements. Certifying that our Lattice Diamond design software is compliant with both the IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 standards makes our low power, small form factor FPGAs a compelling hardware option for our automotive and industrial customers, and illustrates Lattice’s commitment to expanding our presence in these strategically important markets.”

“At Tata Elxsi, we provide product engineering and design services across multiple industries, including industrial and automotive. For many of those customers, supporting functional safety standards isn’t an option, it’s a must-have requirement,” said Dr. Milind Gandhe, VP of the systems business unit, Tata Elxsi: “By having the Lattice Diamond software IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 certified, Lattice has enabled Tata Elxsi to offer Lattice FPGA-based systems to a broader range of industrial and automotive clients.”
