Automotive Electronics Today: Quality, Safety & Security
Given today’s fast growing automotive electronics industry, this keynote will discuss the implications of automotive quality, safety and security requirements on all aspects of the chip lifecycle: design, silicon bring-up, volume production, and particularly in-system test. Today’s automotive safety critical chips need multiple in-system self-test modes, such as power-on self-test and repair, periodic in-field self-test, advanced error correction, etc. This keynote will address these specific in-system approaches and the benefits of selecting ISO 26262 certified solutions to meet functional safety and security requirements, while accelerating time to market for automotive chips.
