DETROIT—As automotive engineering teams embrace more electronics in their systems, the need to design, analyze, and simulate those systems at a higher level has become imperative.
This is not just a product of increasing electronics-design complexity—although that’s a huge part of it. It’s also because design cycles in the automotive sector are quickening, so implementing and simulating aspects of a design need to happen much faster if a company is going to stay competitive in the time-to-market race.
Cadence Applications Engineer Yun Chase participated in the 2014 SAE Convergence event here and described how Cadence Allegro and Sigrity tools can handle chip-to-chip system-level simulation of automotive Ethernet. These battle-tested power and signal integrity tools are now being applied in the automotive space.
Yun took some time from a busy day on the show floor to demo the tools for us in the context of creating an automotive electronic control unit (ECU):
