Harry Foster , Mentor, A Siemens Business show more Description Everything from cars to factories to the world around us is more intelligent and automated, and the decision-making is shifting from humans to machines. Semiconductors are at the center of this innovation.The concept of functional safety is not new, but with the move to autonomous driving, functional safety is in the spotlight for IC development. There is no debate around the importance of functional safety to drive down failures resulting from malfunctioning electronics. However, applying functional safety, with standards like ISO 26262, to complex supercomputers raises questions on how to get “there” – and what does “there” look like?

Session Type Conference Session Pass Type All-Access Pass Speakers Mike Mackey CENTRI Technology High Performance Smart Lidar Design based on Arm Aravind Ratnam, AEye show more Description First generation sensor technologies for autonomous driving featured silo’d sensors, rigid asymmetrical data collection methods, and post-processing lead to over and under-sampling of information and latency. AEye’s iDAR is a novel approach to Lidar design optimizing data collection, enabling it to transfer less data, of higher quality and relevance, for rapid perception and path-planning. The result is a design that can target and identify objects within a scene 10-20x more effectively than LiDAR-only products, delivering higher accuracy, longer range, and more intelligent information to optimize path planning software, enabling radically improved autonomous vehicle safety and performance at a reduced cost. This design is software definable and extensible, adding three feedback loops that do not exist today: one at the sensor layer, one at the perception layer, and another with path planning software. By enabling customizable data collection in real-time, the system is able to adapt to the environment and dynamically change performance based on the customer’s/host’s applications and needs. In addition, it can emulate legacy systems, define regions of interest, focus on threat detection, and/or be programmed for variable environments, such as highway or city driving. This new form of intelligent data collection enables radically improved autonomous vehicles safety and performance, at a reduced cost. The speaker will discuss how model ARM based architectures were utilized to deliver the above design with SOC functionality that met the requirements of clockspeed performance, safe and fault tolerant design, security and update/ rollback mechanisms.

Still, developers are reluctant to use state-of-the-art security technologies due to the impact on performance, code size and RAM, and energy. What is the impact of encryption algorithms, hash functions, and public key cryptosystems, on a specific microcontroller? In this talk I will introduce a new security benchmark developed by EEMBC that will allow silicon manufacturers and developers to analyze and select the appropriate microcontroller.

In this session, we’ll discuss the traditional methods of injecting secret keys into OTP, but one of the most interesting part of this presentation is the introduction of a new type of key storage called physically unclonable function, or PUF, and what this brings to security. With PUF, the microcontroller contains the key without having to inject a secret key. This opens up different options that make provisioning easier and more secure. Session Type Conference Session Pass Type All-Access Pass Speakers Rob Cosaro NXP Minimize Development Time of Systems Using Non-Volatile Memory Samriti Sood, Arm show more Description It is well recognized that industry demand for global-embedded, non-volatile memory (eNVM) is set to be boosted by IoT applications. However, eNVM integration is a painful process for SoC designers, as they need to modify memory controllers and interface for different foundry and process technologies. To solve this problem, Arm has developed AMBA Generic Flash Bus interface standard (GFB) in collaboration with its partners. In order to focus on design innovation and not on hacking another memory controller, join this talk to learn how GFB can enable you to save development time, innovate more, and improve reusability.

Session Type Conference Session Pass Type All-Access Pass Speakers Jeff Defilippi Arm Running Microcontrollers in the Browser Jan Jongboom, Arm show more Description Embedded development seems stuck in the 1990s. Compiling and flashing a new application can take minutes, stepping through code requires an external debugging probe, and many tools are only available on Windows. What if we would be able to run a Cortex-M microcontroller straight in the browser? Development times would be much faster, simulation would be instant, and debugging would go through the normal browser development tools – all while still writing normal C code. Sounds insane?! The Mbed simulator makes it possible by cross-compiling Mbed OS to WebAssembly, offering peripheral simulation, networking interfaces, and even LPWAN radio support.
