Design & Implementation of CMOS Interface Circuits For high-Voltage Automotive Signals, with Fully Integrated Clamps


Research paper titled "CMOS Interface Circuits for High-Voltage Automotive Signals" from University of Parma and Silis s.r.l. Abstract "The acquisition of high-voltage signals from sensors and actuators in an internal-combustion engine is often required for diagnostic purposes or in the case of conversion to alternative fuels, such as hydrogen, natural gas, or biogas. The integration of ele... » read more

Zone-ECU Virtualization Solution Platform


The high complexity of future vehicle systems will need to move away from today’s distributed automotive E/E architecture towards a more centralized E/E structure based on less but much more powerful ECUs, instead of many individual control entities. A Zone-oriented architecture moves the integration of numerous functions and services into one ECU. The resulting network concept must deal w... » read more

Hardware-in-the-Loop-Based Real-Time Fault Injection Framework for Dynamic Behavior Analysis of Automotive Software Systems


New academic paper from Institute for Software and Systems Engineering, Technische Universität Clausthal, Germany. Abstract "A well-known challenge in the development of safety-critical systems in vehicles today is that reliability and safety assessment should be rigorously addressed and monitored. As a matter of fact, most safety problems caused by system failures can lead to serious ha... » read more

The Migration of Engine ECU Software From Single-Core to Multi-Core


Abstract "As multiple functions have been added to single-core-based engine electronic control units (ECUs) in vehicles, automotive researchers and manufacturers have actively studied multi-core architecture for engine ECUs. Multi-core architecture can provide load balancing and parallelism that can meet the requirements of international organization standard (ISO) 26262. However, since real-w... » read more

Innovations In Sensor Technology


Sensors are the “eyes” and “ears” of processors, co-processors, and computing modules. They come in all shapes, forms, and functions, and they are being deployed in a rapidly growing number of applications — from edge computing and IoT, to smart cities, smart manufacturing, hospitals, industrial, machine learning, and automotive. Each of these use cases relies on chips to capture d... » read more

Zonal Architectures Play Key Role In Vehicle Security


The automotive ecosystem is starting to shift toward zonal architectures, making vehicle functionality less dependent on the underlying hardware and allowing more flexibility in what gets processed where. The impact of that shift is both broad and significant. For carmakers, it could lead to hardware consolidation and more options for failovers in case something goes wrong with any system in... » read more

An FPGA-Based ECU for Remote Reconfiguration in Automotive Systems


Abstract: "Growing interest in intelligent vehicles is leading automotive systems to include numerous electronic control units (ECUs) inside. As a result, efficient implementation and management of automotive systems is gaining importance. Flexible updating and reconfiguration of ECUs is one appropriate strategy for these goals. Software updates to the ECUs are expected to improve performance ... » read more

Shifting Vehicle System Development Left With Virtual ECUs


Developing electrical and electronic content for vehicles has always been an engineering and manufacturing challenge. The road is an exceptionally rough environment for components: temperature and humidity change constantly while noise and vibration pummel all parts of the vehicle. The nature of high-speed travel requires safety and reliability, which must be achieved in the presence of the dif... » read more
