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: Learning ISO 26262 - 2nd Edition

Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing at Arteris IP authored this new article on the interpretation of ISO 26262 in today's Semiconductor Engineering blog:

Learning ISO 26262 -2nd Edition 

December 7th, 2020 - By Kurt Shuler

Interpreting the functional safety standard isn't as simple as just looking at the document.

Ambiguity is a feature, not a bug!

Why? Partly ambiguity. Because what I think is clear, you may not think is clear. And some of this ambiguity is intentional: This is a voluntary (thought widely followed) standard, aiming to preserve flexibility for innovation and differentiation. The committees don't want to be too prescriptive, which inevitably leads to some ambiguity.

SemiWiki: The Reality of ISO 26262 Interpretation. Experience Matters.

Kurt Shuler, vice president at Arteris IP talks with Bernard Murphy about the complexities of interpreting the ISO 26262 standard new SemiWiki blog:

The Reality of ISO 26262 Interpretation. Experience Matters

November 30, 2020 - Bernard Murphy

Interpreting ISO 26262 without ambiguity is not always easy. Suppliers and integrators can read some aspects differently, creating confusion. Which is a problem since ISO 26262 has become so much a part of any discussion on automotive electronics that it has gained almost biblical significance. Yet most of us, even suppliers to the market, understand at best only what they have read in the document. I had a fascinating discussion with Kurt Shuler (VP Marketing at Arteris IP) on the background to and challenges in interpretation in the standard. Kurt is a member on the technical advisory group to ISO 26262 and is extensively involved in safety management. It turns out that everything you need to know is not always covered in the official document.
