Aligning Automotive Safety Requirements Between IP and SoCs
The SoC implementors require work-products or documents that describe safety-related features, as deliverables from the IP providers. This white paper explains how automotive IP developers need to implement safety standards to make safety integration easier at the SoC level.
IP for Centralized ADAS Domain Controllers
This white paper describes the new ADAS SoC architecture which has transitioned from decentralized ECUs to centralized multidomain controllers and explains the implementation of domain controllers with IP that has been designed per the ISO 26262 functional safety, automotive reliability, and quality standards.
The Impact of AI on Autonomous Vehicles
One of the key enablers of vehicle autonomy moving forward will be the application of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, particularly those based upon deep-learning algorithms implemented on multi-layer convolutional neural networks (CNNs). These algorithms show great promise in the kind of object recognition, segmentation, and classification tasks necessary for vehicle autonomy.
Data Converter IP for Automotive SoCs
This whitepaper describes efficient and optimized procedures to meet automotive requirements by judicious partitioning of the functional safety requirements between the IP, such as data converters, and the SoC functional blocks that include the IP. The paper also describes the required set of reliability and safety features and tests that the IP must meet.
The Basics of Foundation IP for Automotive SoCs
The paper looks specifically at the standards that apply to Foundation IP - logic libraries, embedded memories, and memory built-in self-test (BIST) - for different automotive IC functions and how reliability grades affect IP selection and implementation risk. The paper then examines each of the relevant standards and tests for functional safety, reliability and quality - ISO 26262, ISO/TS 16949:2009 and AEC-Q100.
Safety in SoCs: Accelerate ISO 26262 Certification with Processor IP
This white paper outlines the key requirements for ISO 26262 certification and demonstrates how to accelerate the development of safety-critical IP and SoCs through the use of out-of-the-box safety-ready IP with advanced verification qualification tools and methodologies.
