SHANGHAI--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire)--VeriSilicon (688521.SH), a leading Silicon Platform as a Service (SiPaaS®) company, today announced its Image Signal Processor (ISP) IP ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0, as a Safety Element out of Context (SEooC), has achieved IEC 61508:2011 SIL 2 industrial functional safety certification. The certificate was awarded by the leading safety consultancy company ResilTech. With ISO 26262 ASIL B certification already under its belt, the ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 is VeriSilicon’s first IP that aligns with dual international functional safety standards.

The ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 is designed for advanced and high-performance camera-based applications, which supports dual cameras with single 4K@60fps or dual 4K@30fps video capturing. It also integrates HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing, 2D/3D noise reduction technologies, and built-in functional safety mechanisms.

The ISP8000L-FS V5.0.0 has been certified by both ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 functional safety standards, which marks a significant milestone in VeriSilicon’s expansion of its functional safety IP portfolio. Adopting the certified ISP IP will help customers accelerate their product development process with reduced risk of systematic failures and random hardware failures in safety-critical automotive and industrial applications.

“With the rapid growth in manufacturing automation applying AI technology for mission-critical decisions, the functional safety of the electronics is becoming even more important,” said Wei-Jin Dai, Executive VP and GM of IP Division at VeriSilicon. “Our ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliant ISP IP can be applied in automotive, intelligent manufacturing, and industrial equipment while addressing the increasing safety requirements. VeriSilicon is taking our widely adopted Glass to Glass (from camera-in to display-out) intelligent pixel processing IP portfolio through functional safety process to enable advances in automotive and intelligent manufacturing.”
