Semiconductor Engineering: Designing For Extreme Low Power

Designing For Extreme Low Power

July 9th, 2020 - By Brian Bailey

Power is becoming a differentiator in many designs, and for IoT and edge devices it may be the most important competitive differentiation. 

 
Most IoT edge devices are basically fairly similar. “The chip basically has sensing, processing and communication,” says Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at  Arteris IP . “There is usually one sensor, or multiple sensors attached to it. These things are polling or communicating periodically. They usually have a part of the chip that they call ‘always on’, even though it’s not always on. It’s doing the communications and checking to see if there’s anything from a sensor. Compared to a mobile phone, or some AI chips or an ADAS chip, these chips are not huge. These are really tiny chips, but the power management within them is really complex.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Get Ready For Dynamic Extensibility

Data Strategy Shifting Again In Cars

June 8th, 2020 - By Brian Bailey

How late can something be deferred during the development process? With dynamically extensible processors, that may be while it's operating.  
 
This places additional burdens on the algorithms. “They need something that’s much more specific for the problem they’re trying to solve, such as near real-time vision, while probably mixing that with other sensors like LiDAR and radar,” says Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “It’s not as general-purpose as something that you’d see from the more academic benchmark. So those guys are having to innovate a lot more than the traditional AI algorithms that you read about.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Data Strategy Shifting Again In Cars

Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP comments in this new  Semiconductor Engineering article about a kind of balancing act which is becoming more common across the automotive design world.

Data Strategy Shifting Again In Cars

How and where vehicle data gets processed continues to evolve.  
 
“We’ve been working with a Tier 1 company on ADAS and a radar chip,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “The radar chip is doing a lot of local processing. So you pick a target and classification, and most of that processing is done right there at the radar. Then you send objects to a central brain. But that radar is very complex from a digital logic standpoint.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Who Owns A Car's Chip Architecture Video

Tech Talk Video: Who Owns a Car's Chip Architecture 

May 5th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP, examines the competitive battle brewing between OEMs and Tier 1s over who owns the architecture of the electronic systems and the underlying chip hardware. This has become a growing point of contention as both struggle for differentiation in a market where increasingly autonomous vehicles will all behave the same way. That, in turn, has significant implications for customization and standards, as well as the hiring of chip expertise inside of these companies as companies race toward fully autonomous driving.
