Safety and Platform-Based Design

Safety and Platform-Based Design
by Bernard Murphy on 10-22-2019 at 5:00 am

I was at Arm TechCon as usual this year and one of the first panels I covered was close to the kickoff, hosted by Andrew Hopkins (Dir System Technology at Arm), Kurt Shuler (VP marketing at Arteris IP) and Jens Benndorf (Managing Dir and COO at Dream Chip Technologies). The topic was implementing ISO 26262-compliant AI SoCs with Arm… Read More


WEBINAR: PAVE360 Validating Autonomous Vehicle Behavior

WEBINAR: PAVE360 Validating Autonomous Vehicle Behavior
by Daniel Nenni on 10-21-2019 at 6:00 am

Image Removed

Siemens Mentor recently announced PAVE360™, a very cool comprehensive pre silicon simulation environment. Autonomous cars are very popular here in Silicon Valley and quite safe on the highways since the average speed is 25mph (horrible traffic). In the city you need autonomous parking unless you want to waste … Read More


Auto Architecture and the Need for Speed

Auto Architecture and the Need for Speed
by Roger C. Lanctot on 10-11-2019 at 10:00 am

Automotive makers and their suppliers are jacking up the processing power being introduced to cars along with higher speed wireless external connections. These high speed systems promise to collect, process, interpret and transmit sensor data for the purpose of enabling advanced collision avoidance and, ultimately, automated

Functional Safety ARC Processor IP will speed automotive system design

Functional Safety ARC Processor IP will speed automotive system design
by Tom Simon on 10-09-2019 at 10:00 am

In the automotive space you can’t even get out of the starting gate without Functional Safety (FS). All electronic system that go into cars must have ISO 26262 certification. However, this is not something you slap on after the fact. From the ground up the requirements for ISO 26262 must be considered and the proper processes must… Read More


Synopsys and Infineon prepare for expanding AI use in automotive applications

Synopsys and Infineon prepare for expanding AI use in automotive applications
by Tom Simon on 10-03-2019 at 10:38 am

We all know that cars are using processors for many tasks, but it is easy to fail to comprehend just how many there are in a typical modern car. Browsing through the Infineon AURIX automotive processor application guide, you can start to see just how pervasive processors are. The AURIX processors are specifically designed for automotive… Read More

Fossil Fuels in the Crosshairs
by Roger C. Lanctot on 09-29-2019 at 11:00 am

Image RemovedIn the heat of a presidential campaign, especially one with 19 competing candidates, the contenders may get carried away in the interest of getting attention and, presumably, attracting supporters. Beto O’Rourke might be accused of such rhetorical excess for his call, in the third Democratic Party debate, for

Forget about 5G
by Roger C. Lanctot on 09-20-2019 at 10:00 am

Image RemovedThere is a vast amount of hubbub in the automotive industry regarding the onset of 5G technology. Industry excitement is manifest in the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) which is facilitating collaboration (among 120+ member) between the automotive industry and the wireless industry, possibly for the first … Read More


Glasses and Open Architecture for Computer Vision

Glasses and Open Architecture for Computer Vision
by Bernard Murphy on 09-18-2019 at 6:00 am

You know that AI can now look at an image and detect significant objects like a pedestrian or a nearby car. But had you thought about a need for corrective lenses or other vision aids? Does AI vision decay over time, like ours, so that it needs increasing help to read prescription labels and identify road signs at a distance?

Chapter Ten – Design Automation for Systems

Chapter Ten – Design Automation for Systems
by Wally Rhines on 09-13-2019 at 6:00 am

Electronic design automation has evolved to an extent that the complex chips with tens of billions of transistors frequently produce first pass functional prototypes from the manufacturer.  What makes this so incredible is that such a small portion of the possible states of electronic operation are actually tested in the simulation… Read More
