Target Breach Highlights IP Indifference

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

The good news is that large amounts of IP go into the design of smart-card chips and RFID tags. The bad news is that the general public isn’t really interested.

Automotive HW-SW Integration – SAE Event at UofW Campus

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

How do automotive electronic designers and testers handle the complexities of hardware-software integration at the chip, board, and network levels? I’ll answer this question at the upcoming event sponsored by the Seattle Chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). After my talk, attendees will be able to tour the SAE Formula 1 Manufacturing area.

SAE NW January Event Details:

Date: January 23rd, 2014

6:45 Presentation John Blyler
7:45 Tour of SAE Formula 1 Manufacturing area
RSVP: Email to RSVP.
Dinner-Event is Free.


Background: The current state of the art is to integrate, verify, validate, and test automotive hardware and software with a complement of physical hardware and virtual software prototyping tools. The growth of sophisticated software tools, sometimes combined with hardware-in-the-loop devices, has allowed the automotive industry to meet shrinking time-to-market, decreasing cost, and increasing safety demands. But is this approach enough, especially when applied across the entire system of chip-board-network electronics? This talk will address this and related issues.
