How to deal with gaps that can impact reliability.


Despite standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508, there are still disconnects and gaps in the supply chain and design-through-manufacturing flows. Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP, digs into what’s missing, why changes made in one area are not reflected in other areas and throughout the product lifecycle, and why various different phases of the flow don’t always match up with the initial requirements.

How is SSD flash memory like a helicopter?

It destroys itself as it is operating.*

Bear with me now as I explain how SSD flash memory works similar to helicopters...

First, let's explain the helicopter part of this analogy: Fixed wing aviators (i.e. non-helicopter pilots) are keen to remind people that the act of converting a jet engine's axial force into the orthogonal axis required to spin a helicopter rotor requires a sophisticated gearbox that slowly (and sometimes not so slowly) grinds itself to death through friction.
