How Flash Memory ICs can support the requirements of Automotive functional safety


first_img > 97% 10-8 /hour < 10 FIT Fig. 2: minimum detection rates for single-point and latent faults, and maximum failure rates as specified by the ISO 26262 standard Nevertheless, automotive manufacturers’ ISO 26262 compliance efforts call for a way to identify any fault that could theoretically still occur in a NOR Flash IC. And at the time of writing (May 2017), NOR Flash ICs are supplied to automotive OEMs as a memory ‘black box’. Functions which maintain data integrity and data retention are, in conventional devices, inaccessible to the user. This closed operation is in conflict with the principles of functional safety, which require the host system to monitor component parts for faults, or for irregular behaviour that indicates a fault is likely to occur, and to implement counter-measures aimed at maintaining proper functioning.This means that NOR Flash ICs intended for use in ISO 26262-compliant systems must make diagnostic data available to the host controller, and provide ways in which the host can modify the IC’s operation in response to a heightened risk of failure indicated by the data.Two main features of a NOR Flash IC provide these data:the ECC engine, which maintains data integrity by detecting and correcting bit errors in Read operationsa User Mode which enables periodic testing of the ECC engine’s operationHow ECC data support functional safety operations In conventional NOR Flash ICs, the ECC engine operates in the background, detecting and correcting bit errors with multi-byte granularity silently, without alerting the host controller. in fact, however, these ECC data may be used to facilitate functional safety compliance in various ways. An ECC engine is capable of correcting single-bit errors (when there is only a single bit variance between the main data bit and the parity bits); and of detecting (but not correcting) double-bit errors.By providing a status register to the host controller, a NOR Flash device can indicate whether the most recent Read operation had one of three possible outcomes:good data with no error correction requiredgood data after error correctionbad data that were not able to be correctedThis ‘after the fact’ information can be used to help maintain long-term data integrity, as we shall see. But ISO 26262 requires automotive systems to detect faults when they occur, and to deploy counter-measures immediately. In new automotive NOR Flash ICs from Winbond, real-time error information may be provided via a dedicated Error pin. This pin may be asserted to indicate the exact location of uncorrectable data. There is also an option for the user to select whether the Error pin will indicate corrected single-bit errors, or detected and uncorrectable double-bit errors.The host may then use the information from the status register, from the Error pin, or from both, to build an error register – effectively a ‘map’ of the NOR Flash array, logging the locations of bit errors. The host may then set a threshold, so that when the number of errors occurring at any one location, such as a particular block, exceeds the threshold, that location is ‘retired’ from the memory. This is a sensible precautionary measure: the repeated occurrence of corrected single-bit errors in a particular block of memory cells might indicate that the block is weak, and at risk of premature failure.Measures to identify a latent failure So far, the measures described are concerned with the handling of single-point faults, for which the ISO 26262 standard specifies minimum detection rates for each ASIL grade. But the standard also requires automotive systems to detect ‘latent faults’. A latent fault is a fault which does not violate functional safety requirements on its own, but which can violate them in conjunction with a second fault.In a NOR Flash IC, there is potential for such a latent fault – a malfunctioning ECC engine is an example. In normal operation, NOR Flash technology is highly reliable and rarely requires error correction. So as long as an ECC engine failure does not cause it to wrongly correct good bits, the failure would normally go unnoticed. But when a single bad bit goes uncorrected because of the failed ECC engine (a latent fault), the two faults in combination pose a risk to functional safety.To enable detection of a latent ECC engine fault, Winbond’s automotive NOR Flash ICs provide special User Mode and ECC Encoder Read commands: this enables the user to inject a main data pattern into the memory, and to read back from the ECC engine the main data and the parity data that it generates. If the parity data are incorrect, the ECC engine can be flagged as faulty.Likewise, the User Mode may be used to check ECC decode operation: in User Mode, the user loads main data and parity data into the ECC engine, and with a special ECC Decoder Read command the main data may be read back. Single-bit and double-bit errors may be introduced into the main data and parity data to check whether the ECC engine performs single-bit error correction and double-bit error detection properly. Winbond’s recommendation is that this ECC engine check should be performed every time the system powers up.New functional safety features available in production parts In response to demand from manufacturers of ADAS products and other automotive systems, Winbond is now integrating the functional safety features described above into a new family of automotive NOR Flash products. The Quad 3V family, featuring a maximum 80MB/s data transfer rate, is available for sampling in a density of 256Mbits as of May 2017. A 512Mbit part (two stacked 256Mbit dies) will be available in the second half of 2017. In 2018, Winbond will release a 512Mbit part with a monolithic die, and a 1Gbit part made from two 512Mbit stacked dies.Winbond’s Octal 1.8V family, featuring a data rate of more than 300MB/s, will be available in densities from 256Mbits, with samples planned for late 2018. Proliferation into other densities will follow later. Winbond also offers Serial NAND products with functional safety features: as of May 2017, products are available for sampling at densities of 512Mbits, 1Gbit and 2Gbits (made of two stacked 1Gbit dies).Winbond Serial NAND products, such as the 1Gbit W25N01GV, support functional safety compliance by providing information to a status register showing whether data read out were good without ECC, good with ECC, or uncorrectable. The Serial NAND page size is 2kbytes and 1-bit embedded ECC is offered at the sector level (512 bytes). This means that up to 4-bit correction can be performed on a 2kbyte page. Winbond Serial NAND also offers the ability to read the location of a failed page when prompted by an additional user command.Fig. 3: the error log in Winbond Serial NAND helps identify potential weak cells or blocks By providing both SPI NOR and Serial NAND solutions for functional safety applications, Winbond offers the user the freedom to select the appropriate Flash memory type for the requirements of their design.For more product information, please visit Winbond Code Storage Flash MemoryShare this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components FIT (failure in time) ASIL-A  > 99% > 90%  > 60% Not Applicable ASIL-D 10-6 /hour  > 90% LF (Latent Fault) Metric In ADAS, as well as in the instrument cluster and elsewhere, Flash memories are nowadays a component in Automotive systems which are safety-critical.  Therefore OEMs are starting to demand a new breed of Flash ICs which can support the requirements of functional safety design at the system level better than previous generations of devices. By Anil Gupta, Technical Executive, Winbond, NOR Flash has been a dependable technology in vehicles for many years, and today is used in various automotive systems, including the instrument cluster and in infotainment and telematics systems (see Figure 1). In these applications, this non-volatile memory provides storage capacity for application code, offering the advantages of reliable operation and Read speed fast enough to support Execute-in-Place (XiP), in which a host processor runs code directly from Flash, bypassing external DRAM.NOR Flash is also playing an important role in emerging implementations of the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) concept, which in cars available today is already performing semi-autonomous highway-driving functions such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping. The pace of development in autonomous driving technology is extremely fast, and so in the next few years more and more of a vehicle’s activity will be controlled by electronics systems containing Flash.In ADAS, as well as in the instrument cluster and elsewhere, Flash is a component in systems which are safety-critical: any uncontrolled failure of such a system would have the potential to render the vehicle unsafe or uncontrollable. To manage and minimise the risk of systems failing to operate as specified, the automotive industry has implemented the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard, which:imposes a requirement at the design stage to perform rigorous analysis of the ways in which a system’s designed functions can failspecifies very low maximum failure rates for complete systemsrequires systems to have the ability to detect functional failures reliably and quicklyrequires systems to put in place robust means to survive safely, and recover from, any foreseeable functional failureFig. 1: the virtual instrument cluster in a 2014 Audi TT.

Automotive systems OEMs are therefore starting to demand a new breed of Flash ICs which can support the requirements of functional safety design at the system level better than previous generations of devices. This article studies the mode of operation of conventional NOR Flash ICs, and explains the features that new automotive serial Flash products will need to offer if they are to fully support system designers’ efforts to comply with the ISO 26262 standard.These functional safety features will likely be seen both in serial NOR Flash – the Flash memory type most often used today in embedded systems for boot code storage – and in Single Level Cell (SLC) NAND Flash. Serial NAND is in fact a valid alternative to NOR Flash for code storage in applications that do not require a high number of Program/Erase cycles, and that do not need to implement XiP. Winbond’s SLC NAND technology is built in a 46nm process, which offers proven high quality and is preferable in functional safety applications to serial NAND products fabricated at new, smaller geometries. It also offers data retention periods comparable to those of 55-65nm NOR Flash.The advantage of serial NAND is its inherently lower cost – a NAND Flash bit cell is four times smaller than that of a NOR Flash cell. Supplied by Winbond with an on-board Error Correcting Code (ECC) engine and supporting high-speed continuous/sequential Read capability across page and block boundaries, serial NAND is now being seriously considered by designers of automotive functional safety applications alongside the NOR Flash which is the subject of this article.Exposing diagnostic data to view It’s important to state that NOR Flash memory technology is very reliable, and devices’ operating lifetime is highly predictable. NOR Flash ICs have proved their qualities in the field, and automotive OEMs’ preference for the technology is based on experience of its use in millions of vehicles on the road today. For perspective, the ISO 26262 standard specifies reliability and other parameters in four ‘ASIL’ grades (Automotive Safety Integrity Level). The most stringent grade, ASIL-D for the most safety-critical systems such as steering or brakes, sets a maximum system-level failure rate of <10 FIT (Failure In Time) – a measure of the failure rate per billion device-hours (see Figure 2). At the level of individual components such as a NOR Flash IC, this calls for a maximum failure rate of far below 10 FIT. 10-7 /hour 10-7 /hour Failure rate ASIL-C SPF (Single Point fault) Metric Not Applicable ASIL-B < 100 FIT < 100FIT < 1,000 FIT  > 80% Continue Reading Previous iC-Haus: high-resolution absolute encoder iCs for nonius interpolationNext Leading standards in the wireless charging marketlast_img read more

Preity Zinta goofs up congratulations on India’s win in Australia. Trolls tear her apart


first_imgCricket fans were swelling with pride when Team India led by Virat Kohli created history by winning their first-ever Test series in Australia by a margin of 2-1, after the fourth and final Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground ended in a draw because of inclement weather.With this feat, India became the first Asian team to win a Test series on Australian turf.Preity Zinta, who is the co-owner of the Kings XI Punjab franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), congratulated Team India on their historic win. In a now-deleted tweet, she erroneously hailed the “boys in blue” for “being the first Asian team to win a test match down under”. Preity Zinta has now deleted the tweet from her account.The actress’s gaffe did not go unnoticed by Twitteratti, who pointed out that India was not the first Asian team to win a Test match in Australia, but a Test series.

Rohini ashram case Chargesheet filed against Godman Dixit for raping minor


first_imgNew Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday filed a second chargesheet in Delhi court against self-proclaimed godman Virender Dev Dixit, in a case where he had allegedly raped a minor girl multiple times at his ashrams, officials here said.The probe agency has charged Dixit under the relevant subsections of Section 376 of the IPC, including subsection (2)(f), which deals with the rape of a minor girl under the age of 12. This particular case was registered by the CBI on January 3 last year, based on an order from the High Court of Delhi. The complainant in the case had alleged that in the months of May and June in 1999, Dixit, who claimed to be a spiritual teacher had raped her at two of his ashrams in Rohini’s Vijay Vihar area and Kampil, a small town in Uttar Pradesh’s Farrukhabad district. Also Read – Kejriwal ‘denied political clearance’ to attend climate meet in DenmarkThe victim who was a minor at the time also alleged that Dixit had then threatened and intimidated her, sources in the know added. In this recent chargesheet, the self-proclaimed harbinger of spirituality was also charged with criminal intimidation in the case, where investigation is ongoing. Dixit is currently being probed by the CBI in three separate cases registered by the probe agency on orders from the Delhi High Court. The federal agency had earlier filed a chargesheet against him on October 3, 2018, naming 59 female inmates of his ashrams. Also Read – Bangla Sahib Gurudwara bans use of all types of plastic itemsThe agency had earlier announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh to anyone who could provide information leading to Dixit’s arrest in the multiple cases, where he is accused of holding girls and women as prisoners in his “ashrams” across the country. Sources in the know said that CBI had received some inputs about Dikshit’s possible sightings in Nepal, adding that he has one ashram in the neighbouring country as well. Subsequently, the investigative agency, through Interpol had issued one Blue Corner Notice (BCN) on March 26, 2018, and two Look Out Notices on January 22, 2018, and February 21, 2018, respectively. The case first came to light when the Delhi Commission for Women had in co-ordinated raids with the Delhi Police rescued over 40 girls from one of Dixit’s ashrams called Adhyatmik Vishwavidyalya in Rohini. In documents accessed by Millennium Post, the ashram in Rohini described minor girls as “kumaris (maidens)” who are meant to become “servants of the world”. The 77-year-old godman has two Non-Bailable Warrants issued against him at the Chief Metropolitan Magistrates’ court in Rohini. Sources here had told earlier that CBI has put up notices on the gates of all of Dikshit’s ashrams in Delhi and efforts to apprehend him are in full force.last_img read more

Mumbai The RBI on Tuesday began its ratesetting


first_imgMumbai: The RBI on Tuesday began its rate-setting huddle amid widespread expectations that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) headed by Governor Shaktikanta Das would slash benchmark interest rate to revive the sagging economy. The Governor has already hinted that the benign inflation provides room for further monetary policy easing while space for fiscal space is limited. The government has already announced a series of measures including steepest cut in corporate tax, rollback of enhanced surcharge on Foreign Portfolio Investors, among others to jump-start growth which hit a six-year low of 5 per cent during the first quarter of the current fiscal. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThe six-member MPC is scheduled to announce the fourth bi-monthly monetary policy for 2019-20 on Friday, October 4, after a three-day meeting. There is no meeting of the panel due to national holiday on October 2, which marks birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The central bank has already slashed the repo rate four times consecutively this year amounting to 110 basis points in aggregate. At its last meeting in August, the MPC reduced the benchmark lending rate by an unusual 35 basis points to 5.40 per cent. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysThe upcoming MPC meeting comes in the backdrop of the RBI’s mandate to banks to link their loan products to an external benchmark, like repo rate, for faster transmission of reduction in policy rates to borrowers, from October 1. Ahead of the meeting, the Das-headed Financial Stability and Development Council (FSDC) sub-committee took stock of the prevailing macroeconomic situation. Earlier, the RBI Governor had said the government has little fiscal space, giving hopes that the central bank may provide more monetary stimulus to prop up the economy. The government’s fiscal space has been squeezed on account of cut in rates of corporate tax as well as lowering of GST rate on various goods. Revenue collection too has been below the Budget estimates. Experts opine that another rate cut is on the cards as the government’s hands are tied and the onus of taking initiatives now rests with the central bank. Shanti Ekambaram, President, Consumer Banking, Kotak Mahindra Bank, said with inflation still within the RBI’s medium-term target of 4 per cent, the MPC has the headroom to cut the repo rate further. “However, the recent volatility in crude oil prices and the fiscal measures announced by the government will have an impact on inflation in the medium term and the fiscal deficit. Hence, we expect the MPC to be more measured in its response with a rate cut of 20-25 basis points in the October policy,” she said. According to NAREDCO president Niranjan Hiranandani, there is expectation of a further 50 basis points repo rate cut in the backdrop of muted inflation which stands lower than the expected 3.2 per cent. The further reduction of repo rate will not only bring down the lending rates but also incentivise investment and boost consumption, he said. While economic activities are showing sings of sluggishness, the policy makers are drawing solace from the fact that retail inflation remains in the comfort zone of the central bank. Retail inflation inched up to 3.21 per cent in August but remained within the RBI’s comfort zone. The RBI has been mandated by the government to ensure that inflation remains below 4 per cent, with deviation of 2 per cent on either side. Experts and industry feel low inflation provides enough headroom for the RBI to further lower the policy rate, especially when festive season has just started. People make huge purchases during Navratras and Diwali. With liquidity concerns in the NBFC sector almost taken care of, the real estate sector too is hopeful that the RBI will go in for the much needed rate cut to boost demand for affordable housing.last_img read more

had the party in question not been Congress — no stranger to power and statecraft It becomes difficult to control incredulity when Congress leaders led by their vice-president indulge in bravado at a time when both countries are locked in their biggest face-off since 1962 and there is an urgent need for lessening of tension so that diplomacy may be allowed to work That we could be staring at a lengthy impasse adds to the tension In fact one would have expected parties to put their partisanship and political compulsions aside and back the government on solving a treacherous and escalatory situation foisted on us by an aggressive expansionist superpower If not handled with care this conflict may pose a deep threat to our sovereignty not to speak of Bhutan’s whom we are treaty-bound to protect By this measure Rahul Gandhi continues to disappoint His stubborn resistance to maturity secretive absences laissez-faire approach to politics and callous remarks on sensitive issues make it very difficult for others to take him seriously The Gandhi scion may have decided that (the reasons are unclear) now is the time for a rather muscular approach and has been hitting out at the prime minister for not being brash enough in his interactions with world leaders Having called Modi a "weak PM" for not raising the H1B visa issue with Donald Trump (never mind that the biggest restrictions were imposed by US regimes when UPA was in power) he went ahead and asked the prime minister to speak up on China Why is our Prime Minister silent on China Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) July 7 2017 The Gandhi dynast didn’t specify his demands but perhaps he wanted Modi to corner Chinese president Xi Jinping at Hamburg and ask him to back off Or at least ask China to leave Bhutanese territory during

Chinese ambassador are using provocative and aggressive language vis-a-vis Indo-China standoff Will PM tell what’s our response2/n Randeep S Surjewala (@rssurjewala) July 7 2017 It has often been said that Modi is the most talented politician of his generation The truth is he enjoys an easy run due to such glaring lack of political acumen among his rivals Rahul Gandhi must be aware that heads of countries do not issue public comments on strategic issues much less a border dispute There are clearly demarcated departments President Xi for instance has not commented on the standoff The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has come out with a communiqué in response to press briefings from the Chinese foreign ministry File photo of Chinese president Xi Jinping (left) and PM Narendra Modi PTI It would seem from the comments that Congress wants India to match China in rhetoric It is difficult to think of a more childish response when India needs to show diplomatic sleight of hand So far India has done the right thing by refusing to buckle under Chinese pressure and pull out the troops New Delhi is well aware of the repercussions of such a precedent India has also done well by not engaging China in a shouting match when it is clear that China — through alternation of status quo ante on India-China-Bhutan tri-junction incendiary comments on media and relentless pressure through foreign office and diplomats — wants to rattle us China feels emboldened to do so because it enjoys a huge power differential with India in terms of military and economic capability China feels that it needs to show no deference to India and based on that assumption has remained incensed at India’s continued diffidence If not an equal New Delhi considers itself a major power and a superpower-in-waiting An understanding of this power dynamic is crucial to interpret the logic behind the moves China and India have been making so far The Indian political leadership and military establishment deserve to be applauded for their reticence which has pushed China into becoming shriller and shriller by the day Beijing is rapidly ascending the escalation ladder and soon might be
