John Day I’m often if not always skeptical when a company says its product or service is an industry “first,” so I wanted some verification when Freescale Semiconductor said that its MP5643L microcontroller is the first such device to be certified by an independent accredited assessor (www.exida.com) as compliant with the relevant MCU requirements of the automotive functional safety standard ISO 26262. But … Read More

  Automotive application developers will expect to receive as much help as possible from suppliers as they contend with the requirements of ISO 26262. When Freescale Semiconductor launched its SafeAssure program last September it promised to make functional safety an integral part of its product development process to align to the requirements of ISO 26262 and IEC 61508. It said its products would

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

John Day Designing cars these days is an increasingly complex endeavor. Dassault Systèmes, developer of CAD/CAM/CAE and PLM software widely used in the automotive industry, notes that electronics now accounts for about 40 percent of vehicle cost and that portion is expected to climb by nine percent per-year for the next several years. Powertrain control technology must be more precise due to stringent fuel … Read More

Talk to some of the people who were around in the very early days of automotive electronics and you get an idea of just how much the industry has changed. Back in the day, some 40 years ago, industry executives knew nothing about electronics and cared less. No so today. One can drown in the alphabet soup of systems engineering efforts aimed at improving reliability. “In North America and France, most

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
