Domain controllers and high performance CPUs for automotive

Webinar: Domain Controllers and high performance CPUs for automotive

Developments in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are creating a new approach to in-vehicle network (IVN) architecture design. Domain or zonal controller architecture will simplify network design, maximize performance and replace a number of common ECUs as well as providing capabilities for high-speed communications, sensor fusion and decision-making.

These controllers must be reliable, robust, able to handle massive amounts of data fast and communicate with various other components (sensors, actuators, ECUs, gateways) using different communication protocols within the same unit (automotive Ethernet, CAN-FD, SERDES etc.)

With this webinar engineers working on domain controllers at chip suppliers / tiers or OEMs learn how to verify the signal integrity on high-speed digital interfaces (e.g. PCIe, SERDES and automotive Ethernet) and traditional communications (eg. CAN-FD, LIN and MIPI) and get insights into measuring EMI of the CPU while developing as well as testing the performance of the CPU (such as switch over- and boot timing).


Dr. Ernst Flemming is a director of oscilloscope product management at Rohde & Schwarz in Munich, Germany. He studied physics at the University of Tübingen and University of Kaiserslautern in Germany, and at the McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. He is currently focusing on test and measurement requirements stimulated by the use of bus systems in the automotive and automation industry.
