The clash between modern software and dependable hardware
Automated driving demands new levels of dependability (e.g. fail operational) and compute performance. Software complexity is traditionally addressed with approaches resulting in more memory and performance demands. But many software transparent hardware performance features contradict with predictability, dependability, security and hard real-time. High performance and high dependability at the same time can only be achieved with a carefully chosen system architecture, considering hardware failure rates, detection rates and recovery capabilities. The same is true for software which is usually even dominant in terms of failure rates. In this talk different compute components and system architectures will be assessed concerning their capabilities to deliver high dependable performance for hard real time systems.
Albrecht Mayer is Senior Principal at the Infineon microcontroller business line. In the last 10 years he has been working on the AURIX multi-core microcontroller family architecture which targets a broad range of automotive applications, fulfilling highest requirements for safety, security, real-time behavior and availability under harsh conditions. His main responsibility are the debug, trace, measurement and calibration solution, but he worked also on other aspects like the family architecture, high availability measures and the security architecture. He has many publications and authored more than 40 patents. Dr. Mayer received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich about a multi-core architecture.
