1.4.5. Functional Safety IP Implementation

In functional safety designs, recertification is required when logic is modified in safety or standard areas of the design. Recertification is required because the FPGA programming file has changed. You can reduce the amount of required recertification if you use the functional safety separation flow in the software. By partitioning your safety IP (SIP) from standard logic, you ensure that the safety critical areas of the design remain the same when the standard areas in your design are modified. The safety-critical areas remain the same at the bit level.

The functional safety separation flow supports only Cyclone IV and Cyclone V device families.
