Advanced Driver Awareness Systems, Autonomous Driving, Electrification, and Connected Vehicle technology are changing the landscape for automotive E/E systems and software and creating new opportunities for companies outside of the traditional automotive electronics market. Automotive electronics is one of the fastest growing segments in the semiconductor industry. Consumer electronics companies looking to enter the automotive electronics market face many challenges and risks. The automotive electronics market is completely different from the consumer electronics market. Companies must follow stringent development flows and perform detailed analysis of safety related functions to prove that their designs will function properly in the intended application. The development cost for automotive electronics can be more than 2x the development cost for consumer electronics. There is also substantial risk for suppliers as failures can result in product recalls, legal liability, property damage, and even loss of life.
Siemens EDA helps customers adapt to the required development flows, develop safety collateral for their designs, and mitigate the risk of product failure in safety critical applications. This session outlines a path to compliance for companies entering the automotive electronics market.
