Why Chiplets Are So Critical In Automotive


Chiplets are gaining renewed attention in the automotive market, where increasing electrification and intense competition are forcing companies to accelerate their design and production schedules. Electrification has lit a fire under some of the biggest and best-known carmakers, which are struggling to remain competitive in the face of very short market windows and constantly changing requir... » read more

Gearing Up For Level 4 Vehicles


More autonomous features are being added into high-end vehicles, but getting to full autonomy will likely take years more effort, a slew of new technologies — some of which are not in use today, and some of which involve infrastructure outside the vehicle — along with sufficient volume to bring the cost of these combined capabilities down to an affordable price point. In the meantime, ma... » read more

A Perfect Blend Of Quality In Functional Safety To Accelerate An Automotive IP Product Release


The integration of functional safety and quality into the automotive development process is crucial for ensuring the safety and reliability of vehicles on the road. Automotive manufacturers must take a comprehensive approach to both functional safety and quality, considering all aspects of the vehicle from design to production and beyond. This includes the use of advanced technologies s... » read more

Automotive Complexity, Supply Chain Strength Demands Tech Collaboration


The automotive supply chain is becoming more complex and collaborative, changing longstanding relationships between automakers and their suppliers in ways that would have seemed unimaginable even a couple of years ago. Rather than just developing parts for a tightly defined specification, suppliers are taking an increasingly active role in determining how various technologies are combined, w... » read more

Confusion Grows Over Sensor Fusion In Autos


A key strategy for fully autonomous vehicles is the ability to fuse together inputs from multiple sensors, which is essential for making safe and secure decisions, but it's turning out to be much harder than first imagined. There are multiple problems that need to be solved, including how to partition, prioritize, and ultimately combine different types of data, and how to architect the proce... » read more
