Software-defined vehicles

Using Tessent to build safe and secure hardware

The features, functionality and even personality of today’s vehicles are completely defined in software, with an estimated 90 percent of future vehicle innovation coming from software.

This puts a huge burden on the underlying hardware platforms that need to support this growing software content, facilitating the vehicle performance requirements of today and tomorrow while making sure they are safe, secure and reliable.

With the rapid growth in semiconductor content in today’s vehicles, integrated circuit (IC) designers have many new challenges. Using Siemens EDA’s Tessent™ software, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services, enables you to align with emerging standards and regulations while offering a complete end-to-end set of solutions to address the requirements of today’s automotive IC developments. Using Tessent enables you to support four key solution areas for automotive IC design technologies.
