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.”

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.

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.

SemiWiki: CEO Interview: Charlie Janac of Arteris IP

Charlie Janac, president and CEO at Arteris IP interviewed by Daniel Nenni in this new SemiWiki blog:

CEO Interview: Charlie Janac

August 28, 2020 - By Daniel Nenni

Why is on-chip interconnect important for SoC innovation?
System-on-chip architectures are rapidly changing because we are moving from “data processing” chips to SoCs able to execute “decision making” models. The on-chip interconnect is the logical and physical means to create the SoC architecture so the importance of the network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect has increased as the need for architectural innovation has grown.

What developments do you see that Arteris IP is able to address?
We’re at a very exciting time because an important ingredient for performant SoCs has clearly become the on-chip interconnect and all the SoC architectural changes by our customers are influencing our technology development.
