The design and implementation of an automotive vehicle have become increasingly challenging, with growing functional complexity in scale and features, the adoption of more distributed and networked architectural platforms, and stringent demands on various design constraints posed by performance, fault tolerance, reliability, extensibility and security. The aforementioned trend on growing complexity presents tremendous design and validation challenges and calls for an immediate attention to this emerging area for developing radically new EDA methodologies and practices, as well as enormous opportunities that have been rarely explored in the past. This special session is proposed to report the state-of-the-art advances in research and development for automotive EDA recently made by both academia and industry. Compared to other special sessions in the automotive domain, our proposed special session carries two unique features:
• Connection to circuit-level EDA: While most automotive research focuses on system-level issues, this special session particularly emphasizes the important connection between automotive EDA and circuit-level CAD. As a modern vehicle is composed of more and more electric devices, the device- and circuit-level non-idealities of integrated circuits (e.g., circuit aging) play an increasingly important role for automotive systems even though these issues have been rarely discussed in the past. For this reason, all hierarchical layers of the CAD community must be involved to efficiently address today’s grant challenges for automotive EDA.
• Connection to EDA company: The proposed special session invites EDA company (i.e., Cadence in this case) to discuss the commercial R&D efforts for automotive EDA. Instead of asking automotive manufacturers and suppliers to describe their needs, it is now the time for EDA companies to showcase their commercial products and solutions that can directly benefit the automotive industry. It, in turn, would attract a large number of researchers and engineers from both the EDA and automotive communities.
