Virtual Hardware ECUs: A Positive Disruption for Automotive Software Development

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

With ADAS, infotainment, safety systems, and autonomous driving requiring more compute power and software content, automotive companies need to revisit their approach to software development and test. Disrupting the current development process is necessary to leverage the latest computing platform. It’s important to start early by removing the dependency on hardware availability and to scale the development environment for better, more efficient software integration and test. This 60-minute Webinar discusses how a virtual hardware ECU can be used to start software development early through fast/agile iteration, independent of hardware, and to increase testing coverage and accelerate cycles through the virtualization of test benches.

The Quality of FMEAs

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis can anticipate and prevent problems, reduce costs, shorten product development times, and achieve safe, highly reliable products and processes. This 30-minute Webinar is derived from the experience of more than 2,000 FMEAs and over 100 companies. It answers the questions: why is there so much variation in the application of a tool that has been around for many decades and what can be done to help achieve more uniformly successful results? It also presents how to evaluate the quality of FMEAs.
