The power of computing has profoundly influenced our lives and we place a high degree of trust in our electronic systems every day. In applications areas such as automotive, the consequences of a system failing or going wrong can be serious and even potentially life-threatening. Trust in automotive systems is crucial and only possible because of functional safety: A system's ability to detect, diagnose and safely mitigate the occurrence of any fault.
The application of safety is critical in the automotive industry, but how do we then balance safety and innovation in this rapidly transforming industry?
Arm Flexible Access lowers the barriers to rapid innovation and opens the doors to leading technology with access to a wide range of Arm IP, support, tools, and training. Arm Flexible Access adds safety technologies and features to make it easier for developers in the automotive industry and other safety-related industries to create SoCs and attain certification for industry safety standards.
Arm Flexible Access also enables more experimentation for those designing innovative automotive systems, which may involve self-driving capabilities or electrification of powertrain, allowing developers to find the most efficient way of balancing functionality with the level of safety required. Different architectures and mixtures of IP can be accessed, evaluated, optimized redesigned to achieve the best solution, which can then be taken to certification more easily.
