“Entering the Automotive arena is radically different than traditional networking markets. The levels of safety and security are of paramount importance,” said Amir Bar-Niv, Vice President of Marketing, Automotive at Aquantia Corp. “Our team has put significant effort into attaining this certification. I am pleased that we have achieved this significant milestone in delivering compliant, Multi-Gig networking technology for the first wave of autonomous vehicles that will come to market.”

Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL), specified under ISO 26262, is a risk classification hierarchy for defining safety requirements. Under ISO 26262, ASILs are assigned by performing a risk analysis of a potential hazard by looking at various risk parameters such as severity, exposure and controllability of the vehicle operating scenario. The functional safety as a process is based on the guidelines specified by ISO 26262, the international safety standard for automotive. The Aquantia Automotive networking products have been approved based on product documentation provided to SGS-TÜV Saar and according to the conditions of ISO 26262.

The SGS-TÜV Saar assessed the Aquantia Automotive networking products and found them to be in conformance with the ASIL B target values for Single Point Fault Metric (SPFM) and Latent Fault Metric (LFM). The ASIL B certification is based on a detailed functional safety assessment that considers:

  • The various safety requirements that have been established to mitigate risks to acceptable levels
  • Smooth management and tracking of these safety requirements
  • Assurance that standardized safety procedures have been followed in the delivered products
