The result is a solution that can easily implement SIL3 safety designs in Altera FPGAs including Cyclone V FPGA and MAX 10 FPGA families, the company says.

The lockstep solution provides high diagnostic coverage, self-checking and advanced diagnostic features for safety-related integrated circuits that are in full compliance with functional safety standards IEC 61508 and ISO 26262. Yogitech’s fRSmartComp lockstep technology works in conjunction with Altera’s Nios II embedded processors to provide diagnostic coverage greater than 99% without the need for ad hoc tests, which results in accelerated time-to-market, Altera says.
