Aerospace & Defense

AMD Unique Value Proposition

AMD has decades of proven success and experience across a wide variety of mission-critical industries and applications. Our customers choose our portfolio of FPGAs and SoCs for to enable:

  • Configurability and increased performance at lower power
  • Integration of complex and complete systems into a single device
  • Reliability and long product life time
  • Faster time to market

Certified Hardware and Software Design Tools

  • Design and verification tools certified for use in Functional Safety applications
  • Certified Compiler tools
  • Functional Safety Certificate and Reports
  • Functional Safety Package

Certified Methodologies & IPs

  • Certified functional safety design methodologies enable integration of safety  and non-safety functions in the same device
  • Isolation Design Flow (IDF) and Vivado Isolation Verifier (VIV) / Isolation Verification Tools (IVT) provide a certified methodology to separate areas on a single device. Designs placed into these regions are physically isolated. The areas can be changed at any time without impacting other isolated regions, proven by the VIV/IVT tools (impact analysis)
  • Certified Soft Error Mitigation (SEM) IP cores perform Single Event Upset (SEU) detection, correction, and classification for configuration memory. The cores utilize device primitives such as ICAP and FRAME_ECC to clock and observe the Readback CRC feature as part of the SEU detection function. For SEU correction,  the IP cores perform the necessary operations to locate and correct errors. For SEU classification, the IP cores use AMD Essential Bits technology to further increase system availability.

Assessed Safety Concept Design

The Zynq™ 7000 SoC has been reviewed and assessed for on-chip redundancy by TuV Rheinland. This Safety Concept Design study states AMD technology can be used to create a single chip solution that will support 2 independent safety channels for SIL3 safety functions referencing IEC61508 Part2 Annex-E.

Functional Safety Working Group

Functional Safety Working Group (FSWG) Events

For 2023 we are excited to announce the first AMD APAC Functional Safety Working Group which will be held in Tokyo, Japan. This 2-day live event providing in-depth information on AMD’s functional safety solutions for ISO 26262, IEC 61508 & ISO 13849 applications.  

FSWG Tokyo 2023

Location: Shinagawa Season Terrace

Dates: July 13-14, 2023


The AMD Functional Safety Working Groups (FSWG) are an annual FREE event in North America and Europe that brings together AMD Industrial, Automotive and Avionics customers, academic representatives, AMD Alliance Members and certification authorities to discuss the latest Functional Safety topics.

The AMD Functional Safety Working Group provides an excellent forum for participants to learn from AMD functional safety leaders and where attendees can connect with their functional safety peers in the industry. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the industry’s safety requirements for today and tomorrow and learn about innovative and unique solutions coming from AMD.

This will be our only FSWG event for 2023.  Our next European and North American Events will be in 2024.

Don’t miss this chance to explore the latest technology innovations from AMD and solve your design challenges!


If you have any questions about the event please contact, safety_solutions@amd.com.

Solution Stack

Some Industrial IoT products need all elements of the AMD IIoT Solutions Stack, all need some. The AMD IIoT Solutions Stack is comprised of optimized AMD and Ecosystem building blocks and solutions used across Industrial and Healthcare IoT platforms. Starting from scratch is never something you will have to do with an AMD-based Industrial IoT system. Minimize development time and cost and maximize design reuse on your next Industrial IoT platform by exploring the different elements of the AMD IIoT Solutions stack.
