Semiconductor Engineering: End-To-End Traceability Video

Ed Sperling and Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP discuss new technology and standards in this video with Semiconductor Engineering:

End-To-End Traceability Video

November 29th, 2021 - By Ed Sperling

How to deal with gaps that can impact reliability.


Despite standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508, there are still disconnects and gaps in the supply chain and design-through-manufacturing flows. Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP, digs into what’s missing, why changes made in one area are not reflected in other areas and throughout the product lifecycle, and why various different phases of the flow don’t always match up with the initial requirements.

SemiWiki: Traceability and ISO 26262

Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki) and Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP, talk about the growing importance of traceability to ISO 26262 and safety.

Traceability and ISO 26262

November 29, 2021 - Bernard Murphy

Since traceability and its relationship to ISO 26262 may be an unfamiliar topic for many of my readers, I thought it might be useful to spend some time on why this area is important. What is the motivation behind a need for traceability in support of automotive systems development? The classic verification and validation V-diagram is a useful starting point for understanding. The left arm of the V decomposes system design from concepts into requirements, architecture, and detailed design. The right arm represents verification and validation steps from unit testing all the way up to full system validation. Tracing compliance with requirements through this full flow requires new kinds of automation.

Semiconductor Engineering: Zonal Architectures Play Key Role in Vehicle Security

Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP is quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Zonal Architecture Play Key Role in Vehicle Security

November 17th, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

Will zonal architectures in automotive applications provide unique benefits to cybersecurity? 


“It’s cybersecurity at the IP level, at the SoC level, at the board level, different levels within the different software modules,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “It must be a real ‘belt-and-suspenders’ approach.”

Semiconductor Engineering: What Is An XPU?

Michael Frank, Fellow and System Architect at Arteris IP is quoted throughout this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

What Is An XPU? 

November 11th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Almost every letter of the alphabet has been used to describe a processor architecture, but under the hood they all look very similar.


“Most of these things are not really a processor in the sense of being a CPU,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “They’re more like a GPU, an accelerator for a special workload, and there is quite a bit of diversity within them. Machine learning is a class of processors, and you just call them all machine learning accelerators, yet there is a large variety of the part of the processing they accelerate.”
