When Does My SoC Design Need A NoC?

 December 1st, 2022 - By Michael Frank and Frank Schirrmeister

Excluding the simplest offerings, almost every modern system-on-chip (SoC) device will implement its on-chip communications utilizing a network-on-chip (NoC). Some people question whether it is necessary to use a NoC or whether a more basic approach would suffice.

Making sense of the many automotive safety standards and requirements.

I recently attended and presented at Detroit’s “Implementation of ISO 26262 & SOTIF” conference. Its subtitle was “Taking an Integrated Approach to Automotive Safety.” After three days, my head was spinning with numbers of ISO/SAE and other standards. And at the end of day two, after yet another example that tricked autonomous driving prototypes into behaving wrongly, I sighed and asked whether anybody else would feel bad for these AIs. It feels like we ask AI to do much more than any human being could ever do. My question got some chuckles but caused some honest discussion about how to quantify autonomous driving capabilities.

How to deliver best-in-class automotive solutions.

We are currently experiencing a pivotal moment concerning the automotive industry. Three major technology areas are converging. First, there is an enormous demand for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) coupled with the increasing trend toward autonomy. Second is the digitization and electrification of everything, which is driving the need for efficient compute. Third is the trend to highly advanced digital cockpits and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems to provide the best user experience.
