Automobiles are today’s supercomputers and with that statement comes great challenges. A vehicle is a highly demanding environment for electronics. Temperature and humidity extremes, noise and vibration, electrical interference, exposure to alpha particles, and other factors all make it hard to design and manufacture chips that will operate correctly under all conditions. In addition, the growing importance of Transportation as a Service (TaaS) is pushing availability requirements to 24/7/365. As specified by the ISO 26262 safety standard, chips must be able to detect defects and take corrective action on their own.
For all these reasons, developing chips for automotive applications is challenging. Proper pre-silicon design, verification, and validation are essential, but further attention to detail is needed during system bring-up, manufacturing, production test, and field operation.
In this webinar you will learn how Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) has emerged as a leading paradigm to make product development and deployment more deterministic for automotive applications.
