With the rise of processing-centric automotive technologies such as autonomous driving, connected vehicles, and on-board infotainment, cars are becoming extreme electronic devices. The escalating amounts of compute power and software content required in automotive systems demands greater efficiency in development practices, strict adherence to stringent functional safety and reliability standards for safety-critical systems, and on-board security to protect increasingly connected systems from hackers. Attend these sessions to learn about key automotive electronic trends and comprehensive solutions to simplify automotive SoC development and accelerate ISO 26262 safety qualification.
The convergence of IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) is giving rise to new functionality in a broad range of connected devices, from home automation to wearables. The IoT increases the value of AI by allowing real-time connectivity and data exchange, while AI augments the capabilities of the IoT by applying machine learning to enhance the human-machine interface and improve decision making. Achieving the necessary processing performance required of deep neural networks in resource-constrained devices is a significant design challenge. Attend these sessions to hear about the latest industry standards and power-efficient hardware/software solutions for implementing AIoT in the next-generation of SoCs.
Traditionally, the focus of embedded applications has been on reducing power consumption and area. New requirements for greater functionality, extended address range and real-time response rates mean developers of SoCs for embedded applications must consider a broader range of performance-power-area (PPA) tradeoffs. As embedded processing spreads from the cloud to the edge and the end points of the Internet, enormous amounts of data must be managed and secured. Attend these sessions to learn about hardware and software solutions that enable you to meet the increasing performance and data protection requirements of your high-end embedded designs.
