There is tremendous growth in the automotive IC market due to the trend towards electric or hybrid cars and applications for enhanced safety. However, the technical challenges of implementing today's connected car and the autonomous vehicles of the future are daunting.
Automakers strive to provide visually stunning, immersive in-vehicle infotainment systems and customizable, photorealistic digital instrument clusters. Under the hood, a multitude of networked processors acquire data from actuators and sensors, to optimize the safety, efficiency, and performance of the vehicle.
At the same time, consumers want the same connectivity in their car as they have in their home. They want to bring their own music and apps, to use their smartphone, and the ability to connect to the internet. Modern vehicles require a huge number of high-quality compute and consolidated components.
The promise of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and self-driving vehicles has excited manufacturers and consumers alike and is generating a demand for advanced sensors and powerful new processing capabilities.
Automotive applications require reliability and security. Automakers rely on industry standards such as ISO 26262 to ensure chip manufacturers utilize state-of-the-art safety processes during development.
NetSpeed's IP offers a powerful collection of functional safety, serviceability and security features.
NetSpeed's functional safety feature provide mechanisms to ensure protection of data through detection and correction of errors. Error containment ensures that compromised data is flagged to the fault controller. Features also include multiple levels of redundancy, automated failure reporting at the silicon and hardware levels.
Serviceability features enable the NoC to proactively and reactively repair known errors and minimize future ones by acting automatically based on configurable options. By providing hook-ups to other SoC IP like fault controller, PMU, etc., it enables collaborating and tight integration with hardware and software stack.
Applications running on mission-critical SoCs have evolved into using open software platforms and applications. These create security risk to hardware and communication at an SoC level. NetSpeed's multi-tiered security features is cognizant of such security risks and provide architectural security support at multiple levels.
NetSpeed is relentlessly focused on giving customers industry’s best PPA (Power, Performance and Area). With its unique heterogeneous architecture, NetSpeed’s NoC platform delivers scalable high performance and can support an ever increasing number of IP blocks in a SoC. NetSpeed’s technology uses a physically distributed architecture that enables architects to get the best-in-class performance from the coherent and non-coherent interconnect.
NetSpeed’s NoC platform enables an organization to reduce project risks at every stage in the design cycle.
NetSpeed technology creates application-level deadlock-free interconnects. It uses a graph theory-based approach and formal techniques to ensure full deadlock avoidance both at the network & protocol-level.
NetSpeed IP is aware of the physical layout of the on-chip system components producing an interconnect topology that is customized for the SoC layout.
NetSpeed offers multiple kinds of algorithmic ECO capabilities to allow last minute design changes while minimizing the overall change to interconnect and SoC design. These algorithmic optimizations minimizes effort as well as schedule.
