GPIOs: Critical IP For Functional Safety Applications


The prevalence and complexity of electronics and software (EE systems) in automotive applications are increasing with every new generation of car. The critical functions within the system on a chip (SoC) involve hardware and software that perform automotive-related signal communication at high data rates to and from the components off-chip. Every SoC includes general purpose IOs (GPIOs) on its ... » read more

Why Improving Auto Chip Reliability Is So Hard


Tools and ecosystems that focus on reliability and the long-term health of chips are starting to coalesce for the automotive electronics industry. Data gleaned from a chip’s lifecycle — design, verification, test, manufacturing, and in-field operation — will become key to achieving the longevity, reliability, functional safety, and security of newer generations of automobiles. Having s... » read more

Industry 4.0 And The Rise Of QPaaS


McKinsey & Company frames this shift as a matter of moving the industry from its current approach of “firefighting” – responding to failures and vulnerabilities after they’re brought to OEMs’ attention – toward proactively preventing such episodes in the first place. How can the industry achieve this objective? By embracing quality protection as a service (QPaaS) — an approach... » read more
