Siemens Digital Industries Software announced a partnership with global semiconductor IP company Arm, that will bring IP, methodologies, processes and tools together to help automakers, integrators and suppliers collaborate, design and bring to market their next-generation platforms faster. This partnership was formed to address challenging issues to realize 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 electronic design and automotive solutions.
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.
“Developing future transportation solutions requires collaboration across complex ecosystems,” says Dipti Vachani, senior vice president and general manager, Automotive and IoT Line of Business, Arm. “Arm technology has been deployed in applications across the whole vehicle for more than two decades, and our collaboration with Siemens redefines what is possible in terms of safety-capable, scalable heterogeneous compute.”
Using Siemens’ PAVE360 with Arm automotive IP, automakers and suppliers can simulate and verify subsystem 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.
“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,” says Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Carmakers, their suppliers, and IC design companies all can benefit from the collaboration, new methodologies and insight now sparking new innovations.”
