Resilient Interconnect Technology for Functionally Safe Automotive SoCs
Automated car adoption is turning vehicles into super-computers on wheels while making automotive semiconductors the fastest growing market segment today. However, automotive SoCs have special functional safety requirements in order to meet the ISO26262 functional safety standard. Being ISO26262 compliant is both a technical and regulatory requirement - in essence the table stakes for being in the automotive semiconductor business. This paper covers developments in resilient SoC interconnect technology needed to address functional safety in automotive SoCs. Different types of Interconnect resilience will be discussed and data presented.
