Review of the week: Automated computing, security, and end-to-end computing

Cars and Mobility

Siemens software for digital industries The Climate Technology Company sustainability Create a way to add carbon emissions data for Siemens Xcelerator. Siemens created its Teamcenter Carbon Footprint Calculator to help teams measure, simulate, reduce and track their product’s carbon footprint early in the development phase. The calculator uses a fingerprint engine produced by Systemys, which contains pre-packaged carbon monoxide2 Emission factors library. “Our collaboration with Subsams will enable customers to understand the environmental impacts of their products and processes early on in product development based on comprehensive and up-to-date data,” said Erin Devola, Vice President of Sustainability at Siemens Digital Industries Software.

Ansis Offer a commercial Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solution that can speed up structural mechanical models – such as the automobile industry. Supports FEA AMD Instinctive accelerators and new GPUs for data centers and supercomputers. Ansys says it has developed APDL code that interacts with the AMD ROCm libraries on Linux, which will support the performance and scalability of AMD accelerators.

Infineon Technologies Signing a multi-year supply agreement With its headquarters in the United States II-VI Incorporated To expand the semiconductor company’s supplier base for silicon carbide (SiC) wafers. SiC, a silicon-carbon compound, is used in industrial applications but is also increasingly found in electronic mobility. SiC power semiconductors are used in master transformers in electric drivetrains, on-board battery charging units, and charging infrastructure. II-VI and Infineon are also working on the transition to 200mm SiC chips.

Researchers at United StateEnergy Department‘s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and University of TennesseeKnoxville You searched for a main article Fast-charging lithium-ion batteries are looking to charge the car for 15 minutes or less. The material, a new compound of molybdenum-tungsten-niobite, or MWNO, could replace the graphite anodes in use today. “Because of lithium-ion’s slow movement, graphite anodes are seen as a barrier to ultra-fast charging. We are looking for new, low-cost materials that can outperform graphite,” ORNL researcher Runming Tao said in a press release. Not graphite, but it also has limitations. Some promising materials – niobium oxides – have complex manufacturing methods that are not well suited for industry.”

Qualcomm Its auto design pipeline says The estimated future volume of automaker software awarded by automakers’ forecasts and Tier 1 supplier forecasts was $30 billion as of September 22, 2022. The company attributed much of the rise to Snapdragon digital chassis solutions.

The NHTSA Estimates in an early release of 2022 traffic data 20175 people died in car accidents in United State So far this year, up 0.5 percent from the first half of 2021. The full 2021 death toll in the United States was 42,915, up 10.5 percent from 2020.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have ordered Tesla To recall some Tesla models in which power windows do not detect obstructions while closing. Windows pose a danger to anyone with a side in the road. Tesla plans to perform an over-the-air (OTA) update to fix the issue.

Flexlogix we will use Semifore, Inc.Flex Logix’s CSRCompiler software with advanced inference chip design. Flex Logix manufactures eFPGA and AI artificial intelligence chips and inference modules. Its InferX X1 is an AI inference accelerator that can handle high volume applications. “These designs are very complex, and the hardware and software interfaces are essential to basic performance and functionality. Charlie Roth, Vice President of Research and Development at FlexLogics, said in a statement. press release.

Infineon inserted Single stage AC-DC flyback controller for battery charging. The ICC80QSG single-stage PWM controller is used in flyback topologies with Infineon CoolMOS P7 Superjunction (SJ) MOSFETs. Distinguished designers can make battery chargers with scalable power designs up to 130W suitable for adapter, printer, PC, TV, monitor, set-top box and speaker applications.


Shock chest Version 2022.2 of the True Code software tool, which helps software developers find and fix vulnerabilities in embedded code. An update expands True Code bug injection attack simulations. Developer teams can create test scenarios that can run automatically during the daily build process without the need for the physical hardware for which the software was developed to find bug-injecting vulnerabilities early.
