Effective integration of advanced Systems-on-Chip (SoC) requires extensive reuse of IP modules as well as automation of the IP integration process, including verification. Key enablers for this are standards to describe and package IP modules. We focus on the IP-XACT standards and demonstrate how these standards are deployed in three industrial IP(More)
The introduction of complex SoCs with multiple processor cores presents new development challenges, such that development support is now a decisive factor when choosing a System-on-Chip (SoC). The presented developments support strategy addresses the challenges using both architecture and technology approaches. The Multi-Core Debug Support (MCDS)(More)
Microcontrollers are the core part of automotive Electronic Control Units (ECUs). A significant investment of the ECU manufacturers and even their customers is linked to the specified microcontroller family. To preserve this investment it is required to continuously design new generations of the microcontroller with hardware and software compatibility but(More)
In this paper, we firstly give an overview of the security perimeter in modern automotive systems and propose then a cost effective solution for authentication of communication data. The proposed solution provides end to end protection, it covers the aspects data content and generation time (freshness) and it can be implemented for different standard(More)
As the complexity of multicore SoCs increases, more potential system issues are arising. Hardware-related configuration issues are becoming more complicated owing to the introduction of more cores and various complex peripherals. Considering the complexity of multicore programming, consultation of the main source of guidance, i.e. the user manual, is not an(More)
SystemC, users and tool providers are at a crossroads. More and more companies are using SystemC; however EDA companies are hesitant to give a full commitment to SystemC tools, especially at system-level. There are several reasons for this dichotomy. While users seem excited about SystemC for its technical qualities for system-level design, tool providers(More)
