Security Concerns Rise For Connected Autos

Value of automotive data increases, widening the attack surface.

“We’re seeing a shift in the entire automotive industry, essentially from mechanics to electronics being the core competence of the automotive industry,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “This includes either influence on architectures or IP design, or maybe even doing entire SoCs, by the car companies and by the Tier 1s, because you need to control your architecture in order to enforce upgradability.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Bridging The Gap Between Smart Cities And Autonomous Vehicles

Communication, security, and power issues still need to be solved, but there is progress.


“It’s important to remember that a lot of power consumption is from the electric motor, so being able to optimize traffic and traffic flows will make a difference,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “In terms of vehicle infrastructure, having the big Waze brain be able to actually direct your car and optimize all of that would reduce power. It’s like fleet management for FedEx, but for everybody.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Car Industry Changing Under The Hood

Car Industry Changing Under The Hood 

January 7th, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

Auto electronics are becoming more centralized, connected, and complex, and the entire supply chain is realigning around those shifts.

It wasn’t that long ago that security was viewed as something nice to have, noted Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “I’ve got some friends who are in the security IP business and I joke with them that they’re actually in the insurance business since there’s no requirement for any of this. A smartphone may be insecure, but five years after you sold the IP or the software, you’re not likely to be sued for having an insecure phone, so who cares? Cars are different. Cars have a safety of life issue, and now there are standards because of that, and it’s something being designed in upfront. Not just market forces, but also standards make things safer for everybody.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Using ICs To Shrink Auto's Carbon Footprint

How chips will play an increasingly vital role in improving efficiency of cars and infrastructure.

Eliminating or reducing redundancy can help, as well. While cars are truly becoming supercomputers on wheels, at the same time there’s less redundancy. “There’s more compute power, but it’s compensated by systems that are more elegant,” said Guillaume Boillet, director of product management at Arteris IP. “There is rationalization of the traffic, and of course, as the technology improves, over time the chips consume less and less, so it’s a balancing act.”
