Vehicle systems and the semiconductors used within them are some of the most complex electronics seen today. In the past, electronics going into vehicle systems implemented flat architectures with isolated functions controlling various components of the power train and vehicle dynamics. However, to support the realization of Level 4 and Level 5 (L4/L5) autonomous driving, a massive restructure is underway. The software-defined vehicle, the automotive Ethernet, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) connectivity, and domain controller units are just some of the new technologies required to realize L4/L5 capabilities. Ensuring all these new systems are both functionally safe and secure from cyberattacks is mission critical.
