Cadence on Automotive Safety: Without Security, There is no Safety

Cadence on Automotive Safety: Without Security, There is no Safety
by Mike Gianfagna on 08-04-2020 at 10:00 am

Attack vectors and EDA countermeasures

One of the Designer Track at this year’s DAC focused on the popular topic of automotive electronics.  The title was particularly on-point, The Modern Automobile: A Safety and Security “Hot Zone”. The session was chaired by Debdeep Mukhopadhyay, a Professor at the Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur.

Combining AI and Advanced Signal Processing on the Same Device

Combining AI and Advanced Signal Processing on the Same Device
by Lauro Rizzatti on 08-04-2020 at 6:00 am

Figure 1 1

A lot has been written and even more spoken about artificial intelligence (AI) and its uses. Case in point, the use of AI to make autonomous vehicles (AV) a reality. But, surprisingly, not much is discussed on pre-processing the inputs feeding AI algorithms. Understanding how input signals are generated, pre-processed and used… Read More


Low Power and RISC-V Talks at DAC2020, Hosted by Mentor

Low Power and RISC-V Talks at DAC2020, Hosted by Mentor
by Bernard Murphy on 07-28-2020 at 6:00 am

low battery

I’m going to get to low power and RISC-V, but first I’m trying out virtual DAC this year. Seems to be working smoothly, aside from some glitches in registration. But maybe that’s just me – I switched email addresses in the middle of the process. Some sessions are live, many pre-recorded, not quite the same interactive experience… Read More


Cars and COVID-19 Uncertainty

Cars and COVID-19 Uncertainty

Cars and COVID 19 Uncertainty

A funny thing happens when you let car makers make cars and car dealers sell cars – people start buying cars. With the U.S. economy at least partially re-opening nationwide car buyers have returned to the market and, finding a limited supply of new cars and disappointing incentives, have turned, in part, to used cars. This … Read More

The Time Has Arrived for AI Based Data Twinning! Shrink the Pipe while Increasing Data Fidelity

The Time Has Arrived for AI Based Data Twinning! Shrink the Pipe while Increasing Data Fidelity
by Tom Freeman on 07-05-2020 at 6:00 am

AI Based Data Twinning

Time to Change our Thinking:
It is time to work the other side of the communications equation. Send less data. But apply new synthetic data science and machine learning to get more and richer information: a way that requires the transfer of radically fewer actual bits – perhaps 1 or 2% of the bits – but with higher model fidelity.… Read More

COVID 19 Through the Rearview Mirror

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the business of reporting news into a funhouse mirror where reality is distorted, up is down, and hopes for improving health and marketplace conditions are simultaneously raised and dashed on a daily basis. The latest news-driven whiplash moment arrived this morning care of the Detroit Free Press

Uber Pariah to Paragon

For years, the lords of Lyft and Uber have declaimed their intention to vanquish car ownership and displace public transportation. It really was as simple and as blunt as that. For sure there would be collateral damage including rental car companies and taxi operators and millions of under-compensated drivers – but the bottom

Cruise Controlling Its Destiny

The Information tells us that General Motors’ Cruise Automation self-driving car unit has acquired automotive radar maker Astyx. The move can be seen as a simple defensive move to preserve access to valuable radar technology along the path to realizing Cruise’s vision of a robotaxi infused future.
