Autonomous Drive Requires Smart Sensor Systems

Bridging analog/mixed signal and MEMS with a unified design flow.


While exotic technology for autonomous drive cars draw wonder all around the world, individual smart sensor systems with “simple” jobs to do are equally important. LiDAR sensors with specialized AI chips for object identification are fascinating. But “simple” smart sensor systems, like passenger airbag deployment systems, are also key to autonomous drive vehicles. A typical trait of a smart sensor system is that the sensing device is implemented using MEMS and the rest of the circuitry is an analog/mixed-signal (AMS) design implemented in a CMOS technology. Bridging those domains is not an easy task. Learn how the Tanner design flow unites these domains for automotive IC design.
