Round-Trip Engineering Key To AUTOSAR-Based Development


This paper discusses how round-trip engineering can be used as an iterative development process and describes interoperability between tools from Mentor and MathWorks. Model-based design has become an important component in vehicle manufacturer and supplier development processes. Electronic control units are complex in terms of functionality, connectivity, and variants; therefore automotive ... » read more

The Electrifying Side Of AUTOSAR


This paper describes a meta-model that covers specific portions of software-oriented AUTOSAR development methodology using the ECU Resource Template. Prior to actual software development, the standardized and open AUTOSAR meta-model can be used to develop an architecture. The ECU Resource Template is particularly well suited for such tasks, because it opens up the actual software-oriented AU... » read more

AUTOSAR And FlexRay


This paper describes ways tools are quickly becoming the foundation for optimization processes that help engineers design profitable automotive products more efficiently than ever before. Standards are the enabling platform for the modern computer-based design tools that have transformed industries around the world. AUTOSAR is a leading effort to bring some standardization to the software platf... » read more

Custom Versus Platform Design


The increase in [getkc id="81" kc_name="SoC"] complexity is being mirrored by a rise in complexity within the markets that drive demand for those chips. The upshot is that a push toward greater connectivity, lower power and better performance—and all for a minimal cost—has turned the pros and cons for custom design vs. platforms and superchips into a murky decision-making process. For t... » read more

Automotive System Design Challenges


The automotive semiconductor market did exceptionally well last year. IHS reported strong vehicle production growth and increased semiconductor content in 2014, and that trend is likely to continue with semiconductor revenue for the automotive segment to reach $31 billion this year, up from $29 billion last year. The market research company affirmed the fastest growing segments for automoti... » read more

More Than Data Management


By Ann Steffora Mutschler Managing the people, the data and the technology are just as important as meeting the market window given that without these, the entire project wouldn’t function. Throw huge data set sizes, different cultures and business management issues into the mix and the challenges are many. Fortunately, these are issues that the semiconductor industry has been refining for ... » read more
