Meeting Functional Safety Requirements Efficiently Via Electronic Design Tools And Techniques

In an intelligent electronic system, unexpected errors can lead to unplanned, unexpected behavior. This can be a potentially dangerous proposition for, say, an automotive manufacturer, as well as a costly occurrence for consumer product developers. Compliance to the latest safety standards can be a laborious, time-consuming process. Fortunately, there are now technologies available that can aut... » read more

Designing For Automotive

As cars include an increasing amount of electronics and electronics subsystems, the number of design challenges involving reliability, cost and power are on the rise. “Reliability tops the list of concerns for the design team because when you put these electronics in, you must know if they are going to operate efficiently by themselves," said Aveek Sarkar, vice president of product enginee... » read more

More Things Are Critical Systems

Defining a critical system used to be pretty obvious. It was something that could affect the health and safety of people, such as the chip inside a pacemaker or insulin pump, a car's braking system or an airplane's guidance system. But as more devices are connected together, that definition is changing and expanding. More devices are now considered critical, such as a connected baby monitor ... » read more
