Arteris IP's Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing, comments in this latest Semiconductor Engineering article:
Where Should Auto Sensor Data Be Processed?
August 1st, 2019 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler
Fully autonomous vehicles are coming, but not as quickly as the initial hype would suggest...
Indeed, when it comes to processing the sensor data, a number of approaches currently point to allowing for scaling between different ADAS levels, but which the best way to do that is still up for debate.
“There must be an architecture they can do that with, and the question is, ‘How do you do that?'” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “There’s a lot of interest in getting more hardware accelerators to manage the communications in software, and directly managing the memory. For this, cache coherence is growing in importance. But how do you scale a cache coherent system? This must be done in an organized way, as well as adding a whole bunch of masters and slaves to it, such as additional clusters.”
