Power, Noise and Reliability Analysis for Automotive Electronic Systems

From 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress: Advanced automotive safety and assist systems call for integrating complex electronics. Since they affect safety, the systems must meet strict reliability requirements. In addition, the number of systems integrated into an automobile requires power dissipation optimization. The onboard power supply system shared between high-current electrical systems and sensitive electronics systems is noisy, and the thermal environment can vary widely. Interference occurring from noise generated on the shared supply system, or through wireless EMI, poses major reliability threats. To help address key power and reliability challenges in these systems, utilizing a system aware design approach early in the IC design process helps to meet safety and reliability requirements while reducing overall development time and cost.
