DENSO Corporation Y CMUThe Japanese subsidiary of United Semiconductor Japan Co., Ltd. (USJC) are collaborating on production of power semiconductors for the automotive market at the USJC 300mm factory. USJC will install an insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) line at its wafer fab.

Renesas Electronics uncorked an integrated automotive ECU virtualization platform for developers who want to integrate multiple applications into a single ECU (Electronic Control Unit). The platform combines Renesas’ RH850/U2x MCUs with ETAS’s RTA-HVR software, which provides a hypervisor for MCUs that support hardware virtualization. Developers can use new electrical-electronic (E/E) architectures in MCU-based zone ECUs, which support multiple logical ECUs in one physical ECU. The RH850/U2x Zone ECU Starter Kit demonstrates different virtual machine configurations to explore the impact of alternative VM switching mechanisms.

robotics Skyline, that designs AI processors and algorithms for intelligent driving, is using PDF Solutions Exensio Platform to improve your performance and collect analytical data on your chip designs.

ams osram is integrating mixel’s MIPI IP in some of its Mira CMOS image sensors, which are used for eye tracking, gesture tracking, barcode scanning, robotic mobility, 3D structured light, 3D active stereo systems, and 2D NIR imaging.

generalized computing
Arm expanded options for IoT as part of your total solutions roadmap for IoT. Total Solutions for IoT is based on Arm Corstone, a pre-integrated and pre-verified IP subsystem. The company released its Arm Total solution for Cloud Native Edge devices, which has Cortex-A and is based on Corstone-1000. It makes it possible to develop workloads for devices such as smart wearables, gateways, and high-end smart cameras. It also released its total solution for speech recognition, Arm Virtual Hardware, and the Arm Cortex-M85 processor, which is machine learning ready. In addition to performance improvements and endpoint ML/DSP workload support, the M85 incorporates enhanced Arm TrustZone security.

Infineon added a new member to the CIPOS Tiny Intelligent Power Module (IPM) family, suitable for home appliances such as room air conditioners. The CIPOS Tiny IM323-L6G integrates a discrete power semiconductor and driver in a single package and uses 600V RC-D2 IGBT TRENCHSTOP switches and SOI gate driver technology.

The Global Certification Forum (GCF)an organization that administers industry testing and certification standards for mobile and IoT products, used key viewS8705A RF/RRM DVT and Compliance and S8704A Protocol Compliance Toolkits to create a 5G NR Frequency Range 2 (FR2) test plan certification. The certification test plan validates compliance with 3GPP standards for RF performance and protocol validation of new 5G millimeter wave radio (NR) devices operating in standalone (SA) mode.

peephole also released a four-channel vector signal generator, the M9484C VXG Vector Signal Generator, with a frequency of up to 54 GHz offering up to 5 GHz of RF bandwidth and low phase noise. The signal generator can generate mmWave signals for testing 5G mobile communications, 6G research, satellite communications, and radar applications.

Security
synopsis is acquiring White Hat Securityan application security software as a service (SaaS) company, NTT Security Corporation. The acquisition will add dynamic application security testing (DAST) technology to Synopsys Software Integrity Group’s portfolio of static analysis, interactive analysis, and software composition analysis. Synopsys will pay approximately $330 million in cash for WhiteHat Security, pending regulatory approval. The deal is expected to close in Synopsys’ third fiscal quarter of 2022.

European Comission‘s Radio Equipment Directive (RED) Articles 3.3 (d), (e), (f) are security, health and privacy regulations that will come into force on August 1, 2024 in the EU. All RF-enabled equipment sold on the EU market will need to comply with the rules. Infineon recently said it is participating in the efforts of the European Organization for Standardization (ESO) to develop technical and compliance requirements. “We support the essential requirements in the delegated articles of EU RED as it introduces security, privacy and fraud protection into all RF-connected devices sold within the EU ‘single market’ and consequently makes it more secure. use these devices for European individuals and companies. “said Thomas Rosteck, president of Infineon’s Connected Security Systems Division in a press release, “EU GDPR (2018), the EU Cyber ​​Security Law (2019), and now EU RED: the continued emergence of regulations underscores the growing importance of cybersecurity in today’s world.”

Intel make a call for documents for its 2022 Intel Hardware Security Scholar Award. Any full-time faculty member, tenured, or tenured (or equivalent) involved in research may submit security papers by June 5, 2022. The award recognizes advancements in solutions, tools and methods to bring safer and more reliable foundational technologies to industry. .

lam research opened a new R&D center at Jigok Industrial Complex in Korea’s K Semiconductor Group. The Lam Research Korea Technology Center has a clean room and additional capacity for expansion.

analog devices’ Geoffrey Coram, Staff CAD Engineer, he won Yes 2 (Silicon Integration Initiative) Pinnacle Award. He chairs three working groups within the Si2 Compact Model Coalition and developed and, among other accomplishments, released an open source tool for checking Verilog-A models for common errors and performance issues. The tool is known as Verilog-A Model Pythonic Rule Enforcer, or VAMPyRE.

Electronic Systems Design Alliance (ESD Alliance) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) extended the deadline for submitting applications for the Phil Kaufman Hall of Fame for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic Systems Design through Friday, May 27.
