Siemens teams with Arm for automotive advancement
Published: 8 January 2020 - Christian Lynn
Siemens has announced an alliance with Arm, one that hopes to birth new IP, methodologies, processes and tools together to help automakers, integrators and suppliers collaborate, design and bring to market their next-generation platforms much faster. This partnership was formed to address the increasingly complex challenges facing the industry in developing platforms to realise automotive systems and technologies such as active-safety, advanced driver assistance, in-vehicle infotainment, digital cockpits, vehicle-to-vehicle/vehicle-to-infrastructure and self-driving vehicles. Key advances in computing and sensor technology are enabling companies to redefine mobility beginning with the integrated circuits and software within automotive electronics systems. The combination of Siemens’ and Arm’s technologies can help automakers and suppliers deliver tomorrow’s electronic design and automotive solutions, today.
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.
“Developing future transportation solutions requires collaboration across complex ecosystems,” said Dipti Vachani, senior vice president and general manager, Automotive and IoT business line, Arm. “Arm's collaboration with Siemens hopes to look at what is possible in terms of safety-capable, scalable heterogeneous compute. We see this as an important catalyst for the next wave of automotive semiconductor innovation.”
“In all we do at Siemens, our goal is to provide transportation companies and suppliers the most comprehensive digital twin solutions, from the design and development of semiconductors, to advanced manufacturing and deployment of vehicles and services within cities,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO at Siemens Digital Industries Software: “Siemens believes collaboration with Arm is a win. Carmakers, their suppliers, and IC design companies all can benefit from the collaboration, new methodologies and insight.”
