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.

Semiconductor Engineering: Is Hardware-Assisted Verification Avoidable?

Khaled Labib, Vice President of Engineering at Arteris IP is quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Is Hardware-Assisted Verification Avoidable?

October 28th, 2020 - By Brian Bailey

Simulation is no longer up to the task of system-level verification, but making the switch to hardware-assisted verification can lead to some surprises if you do not fully plan ahead.

Bringing hardware-assisted verification in for the first time is not easy. “For a small company, emulation systems are expensive,” says Arteris’ Labib. “The ones with more advanced features run you about a million dollars for an average starting configuration. If you want to start lower than that, you’re going to have to either give up on features or go with a smaller commercial configuration. But this has become critical to our business, and even as a small company we had to find the necessary budget to buy emulation.”

Semiconductor Engineering: A Renaissance For Semiconductors

A Renaissance For Semiconductors

October 28th, 2020 - By Brian Bailey

New horizontal technologies and vertical markets are fueling the opportunities for massive innovation throughout an expanding ecosystem.

Even within artificial intelligence there are multiple facets to the problem. “From an SoC architecture standpoint, think of a 2 x 2 matrix where you have data center versus edge on one side,” says Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “People may argue about where the dividing line is, but you could think of it as stuff that runs off a battery versus stuff that has to be plugged in. The other side is artificial intelligence, and there are two aspects to that. One is training the neural network, and the other is using that neural network in the real world — inference. So you have this 2 x 2 matrix of data center versus edge, and training versus inference.

Semiconductor Engineering: Sensor Fusion Challenges In Cars

Sensor Fusion Challenges In Cars

October 8th, 2020 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

As more pieces of the autonomous vehicle puzzle come into view, the enormity of the challenge grows.

You could say it’s the Wild West, but you could also say there’s tons of innovation happening,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “That’s true whether it’s on the sensor chips or whether it’s on the ADAS brain chips. Eventually you want to be able to explain things in symbolic terms, and have an intermediate layer such that once you get this data, the data as its transmitted is in some kind of lingua franca that both sides can understand even though they’re from two separate companies. What I don’t know is how much processing it will take to move something from more of a raw data format into something useful. Eventually, there has to be a data format.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Good Vs. Bad Acquisitions

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

Good Vs. Bad Acquisitions

October 7th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

M&A begins to ramp up, but not all of them will work.

Making acquisitions is one thing, but it’s the result afterwards is that that really matters,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “If your company culture is very different from any other company culture, that makes it much more difficult. We’ve seen that with some acquisitions that have not been very profitable, and the company may end up divesting.”

Arteris IP’s pending acquisition of Magillem Design Services is aimed at expanding its footprint beyond the network on chip into what Janac calls SoC assembly. Magillem can package IP in an SoC into an IP-XACT format, which paves the way for uniform communication in an SoC or an advanced package.
