The race to autonomous vehicles is pushing autonomy and the adoption of complex heterogeneous systems, yet calling for ultimate reliability and scalability in automotive SoCs.

Designing such SoCs with efficient communication between compute elements – CPU clusters, GPUs, accelerators for vision processing and storage - while achieving functional safety is a challenge. These complex communication requirements within such a SoC, call for the use of an advanced, correct-by-construction interconnect fabric that enables designers to meet the required performance, latency, coherency, safety and reliability. 

Key Takeaways

  • Identify the system level challenges facing automotive autonomy
  • Explore architecture and design strategies for autonomous vehicle SoCs
  • Creating interconnect fabric for automotive SoC that enables the needed performance, latency, coherency, safety and reliability
