Functional Safety in the Evolving Automotive Market

Functional Safety in the Evolving Automotive Market

Posted 11/03/2022 by Christian Mueller & Mark Hoopes, Lattice Semiconductor

Functional safety (FuSa) ensures systems or pieces of equipment are operating correctly in response to inputs or failure, and is a crucial part of the overall safety of a system. Originally developed for the Industrial market before being adopted into other markets, FuSa is now critical to automotive applications and is gaining even more importance as more technological advancements are added to vehicles. What impact has this shift had on the evolving Automotive market? We sat down with Functio...

FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

Posted 08/30/2022 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

One of the many interesting things we all learned during the pandemic is that supply chains can cause problems for lots of people. Automotive industry supply chains in particular are, well, really complicated. Even general consumers started to learn how important semiconductors are to the production of today’s increasingly intelligent cars and how, if chips are in short supply, vehicles can’t get produced. What they probably didn’t quite get to is what a critical role FPGAs pla...

Accelerating Space Development with Low Power, Radiation-Tolerant FPGAs and GRLIB

Accelerating Space Development with Low Power, Radiation-Tolerant FPGAs and GRLIB

Posted 06/09/2022 by Guest blog: Adam Taylor CEng FIET Embedded Systems Consultant

The importance and adoption of FPGA technologies are growing exponentially in space applications thanks to their on-orbit reconfigurability, responsiveness, and flexibility. This is especially true for the latest space application development aimed at Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Operators in LEO typically deploy fleets of satellites to perform applications from ship and asset tracking to weather, environment, and ecosystem monitoring. However, developing applications for space brings challenges ...

Addressing Design Complexity in System Control Architecture

Posted 05/31/2022 by Peiju Chiang

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted industries and economies across the globe, pushing a large portion of formerly office-based workforces into remote-work setups. A large segment of the workforce becoming decentralized put immense pressure on servers, datacenters, networks, and communication systems, at large. In America, for example, 71% of workers doing their jobs from home all or most of the time put a strain on connectivity and created a more reliance on services in the cloud, as well as 5G and...

Anti-Fragile Security and Post Quantum Crypto Readiness

Anti-Fragile Security and Post Quantum Crypto Readiness

Posted 03/08/2022 by Eric Sivertson

The world has become in many ways more fragile, and a quick look into recent Supply Chain issues highlights this very well. The global growth of interdependencies and complexities of enterprises has introduced fragility into many cyber-systems. Cybersecurity has been top of mind for years across all markets and industries, but we’ve reached an inflection point. Cyberattacks have continued to grow in velocity and veracity as bad actors find new invasive ways to penetrate systems and take ad...

Processing Solutions for Evolving Space Application Requirements

Posted 02/08/2022 by Jim Tavacoli

A new space race is officially upon us, one that brings the “Final Frontier” much closer to home than ever before. While we regularly see headlines about shuttle launches, there is another space application that’s much more common today – the growing number of satellites occupying the space sector known as “low Earth orbit,” aka “LEO.” This is where most of the “action” is taking place, making what once seemed remote and inaccessible to...
