Siemens and Arm have formed a partnership to come up with technologies that help automakers in developing platforms.
There is an the increasingly complex challenges facing the Automotive Industry to realize active-safety, advanced driver assistance, in-vehicle infotainment, digital cockpits, vehicle-to-vehicle/vehicle-to-infrastructure and self-driving vehicles platforms.
Siemens and Arm believe that the combination of their innovative technologies can help automakers and suppliers deliver tomorrow’s electronic design and automotive solutions, today. Both the companies will bring leading edge IP, methodologies, processes and tools together to help automakers, integrators and suppliers collaborate, design and bring to market their next-generation platforms much faster
Siemens’ PAVE360 digital twin environment, featuring Arm IP, applies high-fidelity modeling techniques from sensors and ICs to vehicle dynamics and the environment within which a vehicle operates. Using Arm IP, including Arm Automotive Enhanced (AE) products with functional safety support, digital twin models can run entire software stacks providing early metrics of power and performance while operating in the context of a high-fidelity model of the vehicle and its environment, helping deliver a new future of mobility.
Using Siemens’ PAVE360 with Arm automotive IP, automakers and suppliers can simulate and verify sub-system and system on chip (SoC) designs, and better understand how they perform within a vehicle design from the silicon level up, long before the vehicle is built.
Arm’s automotive IP is helping to democratize the ability to create safety-enabled silicon, bringing it within reach of the entire automotive supply chain. By rethinking IC design for the automotive industry, manufacturers can consolidate electronic control units (ECUs), leading to thousands of dollars in savings per vehicle by reducing the number of circuit boards and meters of wire within the vehicle design. This in turn reduces vehicle weight which can promote longer range electric vehicles.
