16:10 Module F. How to perform an FMEDA on a semiconductor

The accuracy of FMEDA is central to a strong safety case. In this session, you will get a greater understanding of failure modes, effects, and diagnostic coverages. You will learn how to defend engineering judgement used (failure mode distributions, diagnostic coverages, safe faults). You will learn how to use reliability data to extract failure rates.
Co-moderated by Ashish Vanjari, Systems Engineer (Functional Safety), Texas Instruments, USA
And Prasanth Viswanathan Pillai, Functional Safety Architect , Texas Instruments, India
