Semiconductor Engineering: Car Industry Changing Under The Hood

Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing Arteris IP quoted in today's Semiconductor Engineering blog:

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: Sensor Fusion Challenges In Cars

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

Sensor Fusion Challenges In Cars

October 8th, 2020 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

As more pieces of the autonomous vehicle puzzle come into view, the enormity of the challenge grows.

You could say it’s the Wild West, but you could also say there’s tons of innovation happening,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “That’s true whether it’s on the sensor chips or whether it’s on the ADAS brain chips. Eventually you want to be able to explain things in symbolic terms, and have an intermediate layer such that once you get this data, the data as its transmitted is in some kind of lingua franca that both sides can understand even though they’re from two separate companies. What I don’t know is how much processing it will take to move something from more of a raw data format into something useful. Eventually, there has to be a data format.”

SemiWiki: AI in Korea. Low-Key PR, Active Development

Kurt Shuler, vice president at Arteris IP talks with Bernard Murphy about AI in Korea in this new SemiWiki blog:

AI in Korea.Low-Key PR, Active Development

September 15, 2020 - Bernard Murphy

Based on press coverage and technical paper volume, you could be forgiven for thinking that Korea had decided to take a pass on AI mania, or maybe just to dabble a little here and there to stay abreast of trends. But you’d be wrong. Korea is very active in AI; they don’t feel a need to trumpet what they’re doing from the rooftops. If you dig around, there are plenty of hints. I talked with Kurt Shuler of Arteris IP to get a better understanding. I’m talking here about AI hardware, of course.

Semiconductor Engineering: Software-Defined Vehicles

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

Software-Defined Vehicles

September 4th, 2020 - By Bryon Moyer

The electrification of cars makes all sorts of things possible. 

“There’s a big open question regarding how these updates affect functional safety,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP . “Is it practical to completely redo the safety analysis for each update?”
