Safety, The Non-Negotiable Requirement Driving Autonomous Vehicle SoC Designs

Making the right performance-area tradeoffs for automotive functional safety.


The automotive industry has set itself the goal of achieving autonomous driving and is accruing the building blocks to make that happen. The challenge is in architecting the next generation automotive SoCs which must deliver exploding performance while meeting requirements for real-time latency, end-to-end QoS, FuSa (ISO 26262) and security. These SoCs need to include heterogeneous architectures – GPUs, accelerators, processor cores – with built-in cache coherency. Making the right design decisions and performance-area tradeoffs, especially with regard to FuSa, is a major challenge for architects.
