Semiconductor Engineering: Vehicle Communications Is Due For An Overhaul

Vehicle Communications Is Due For An Overhaul

May 12th, 2020 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

The Controller Area Network (CAN), one of the main communications networks in an automobile, is headed for a security overhaul — if not a wholesale replacement.
 
Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at  Arteris IP , likewise stressed the need for am architecture for security from the start. “Do as much as you can at the lowest possible level, because that’s where you can have the most control later. If you’re doing everything in software later, there are still ways around that. If you have things at the hardware level — and that’s where it comes to with the interconnects and the firewalls — if you have the physical mechanisms to stop traffic that shouldn’t be there during certain use cases and you can control that later when there’s new use cases, you’re covered. But it’s got to be built in an overall architecture, where the smallest parts are the SoC transistors. This equates to fire-walling, and either poisoning data that is suspect and letting it through or firing an interrupt up to the system that says, ‘Hey, I’m being hacked.’”

Semiconductor Engineering: Which Chip Interconnect Protocol is Better?

Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP participates in this Experts at the Table with Ed Sperling in this new Semiconductor Engineering article:

Which Chip Interconnect Protocol is Better?

May 11th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

Experts at the Table: CXL and CCIX are different but it's not always clear which is the best choice.
 
"Everybody is circling around and trying to figure out what everybody else is doing, said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. CCIX is a little different. The idea there was that you would have one or more chips and they would all be one cache coherent system. So in the case of CXL, the coherency is all managed on the Xeon side, and that companion chip is always a slave. It’s different with CCIX. So if you do the bi-directional coherency, which is what people are interested in, it’s one big cache-coherent system".

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.

Semiconductor Engineering: Key Drivers in New Chip Industry Outlook

K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO at Arteris IP is quoted in this new Semiconductor Engineering article:

Key Drivers in New Chip Industry Outlook

May 4th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

CEOs and analysts examine winners and losers and where demand is shifting.
 
“Opinions are all over the place,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP . “If you look at high tech, about 60% of the segments are down, 40% are up. What’s up is infrastructure, which includes data centers, networking, cameras, security, entertainment and video games. What’s down are the end points — smart phones, cars, some consumer, industrial and automotive. The big question is whether this is due to the pandemic and overreaction, or whether this is going to be a debt-driving mainstream crisis.”
