Jamie Little Voice activated features such as placing calls have been available in automobiles for many years. Today the most advanced systems under development and research are in the areas of autonomous vehicles. At the Embedded World Conference 2013 I was reminded about a car from the 1980’s that already had all these capabilities built in. Yes it was KITT (the Knight Industries Two Thousand)! The car was right … Read More

Kamran Shah This year is my first time attending CES and to be honest it’s a little overwhelming to figure out what to do. I at least have some things I know I’m doing that fill in at least a third of my time. It looks like we’ll have quite a few people from Mentor Graphics at the show this year, including our CEO, Walden Rhines. It makes a lot of sense especially for Automotive since Mentor has … Read More

John Day That question about the difficulties involved in integrating development tools from different suppliers was asked rhetorically during a presentation at IESF Detroit by Paul Hansen, editor and publisher of The Hansen Report on Automotive Electronics (hansenreport.com). “Why the lack of integrated tool solutions?” Hansen asked Mentor Graphics VP Serge Leef. It’s because there are no standards, Serge … Read More

Automotive IESF 2012

Posted by Mike Jensen

Mike Jensen Believe it or not, summer is fast approaching. My daughter is looking forward to the summer break from school. My sons, being a bit older and each completing a couple of semesters of university studies, are facing a summer busy with research or employment. When they yearn for leisure days of summers past, I usually respond with “welcome to adulthood”. The SystemVision crew is preparing for … Read More

John Day Registration is now open at www.mentor.com/events/iesf/detroit for the 12th IESF Conference for Automotive EE Design – June 14th, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Dearborn, MI. Click to sign up if you haven’t already. I missed the last one and don’t want to miss this one – especially since this year I am on the program, speaking about automotive electronics reliability (shameless plug: http://books.sae.org/book-t-126) … Read More

Mike Jensen If you plan to be in Frankfurt, Germany on November 17, mark your calendars for Mentor Graphics’ Automotive and Commercial Vehicles Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF). You’ll enjoy 26 industry sessions planned specifically for E/E design engineers, engineering managers, and executives in the automotive and commercial vehicle industries. This IESF event will be particularly interesting if your … Read More

The next installment of Mentor Graphics’ Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) is scheduled for June 2 in Detroit, Michigan. As I’ve mentioned before, we typically host two or three IESF events each year in different cities around the United States. Topics vary a bit, depending on the location, but all are chock-full of technical content. The June 2 event focuses on automotive design and

John Day I wanted to learn more about AUTOSAR, and so I spoke with two experts from General Motors – Nady Boules, director of GM’s Electrical & Controls Integration Lab, and Massimo Osella, lab group manager for electronic controls and software architecture at GM R&D. GM doesn’t have AUTOSAR software components in a production vehicle as yet, but as a core partner, the firm has been working with the AUTOSAR … Read More

IESF Recap

Posted by Mike Jensen

Mike Jensen In my last blog post, I highlighted Mentor Graphics’ IESF Automotive 2010 event which is now officially in the history books. While I didn’t get to sit-in on all of the presentations (I was working a demo stand, chatting with attendees, and had a couple of presentations myself), I learned a few interesting tidbits from several of our guest speakers. John Antilla from Chrysler talked about the challenges … Read More

John Day It looks like Toyota’s reliability problems will be with them – and us – a while longer, so what, if anything, can we learn from the situation? It seems clear that electronic content in cars will continue to increase due to the entertainment and comfort features we want as well as the need for better fuel economy (reducing weight by replacing mechanical subsystems with electronics). That means more … Read More

John Day I don’t hear a lot about AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture) technology in production vehicles, but I’m inclined to think that will change sooner than later. It’s not just the number of major players in the consortium, but also the compelling need for less complexity in application development, lower development costs, and faster time-to-market. Standard (AUTOSAR-compliant) software and hardware … Read More

John Day News usually travels pretty fast on the Internet. Someone puts out a press release and within minutes it’s posted on dozens of sites. Not last week, though, for one story in particular, and it looks to me like a good one. Delphi, Geensys, and CEA (the French Atomic Energy Commission) announced the formation of a consortium to promote the PharOS, an operating system and tool chain that meets ISO 26262 … Read More
