Built-In Security For Auto Chips


The road to autonomous vehicles depends upon components that are secured against hacking and other outside interference. The cybersecurity precautions necessary for self-driving cars must be embedded in chips and systems from the beginning of the supply chain. Automotive manufacturers and their Tier 1 suppliers are counting on their electronics vendors to provide products that can withst... » read more

Faster Commoditization In Cars


Sensors are at the heart of assisted and autonomous driving, but even before these devices hit the road the average selling prices of these components will have to fall far enough to be affordable to a mass audience. Achieving economies of scale is what has made the semiconductor industry successful over the past half century. It has enabled semiconductors to proliferate and for electronics ... » read more

What Autonomy Level Is Your Car?


Over the past couple of months, you've probably heard semiconductor industry executives dropping numbers about the levels of autonomy for vehicles. And despite Tesla's highly touted autonomous capabilities, current models are just a Level 2. Or maybe it's a Level 3. If these numbered levels were meant to lessen the confusion, it's not clear the plan is working. Until last September, there we... » read more

Automotive Is Convergence


Given that there is still much to be done to enable self-driving cars, particularly since security is still a moving target, the name of the game going forward is convergence. That fact is not disputed. What is quite fascinating, however, is to witness the impact of technology applied, as well as watch as the industry grapples with the issues critical to mobility electronics implementation. ... » read more
