Fail-safe Electronics for Automotive



What is the implication of fail-safe electronics within the automotive industry?  How are experts addressing the tradeoffs between reliability, performance and cost? How is the decoupling of hardware/ software affecting the value chain?

Join us for this 1-hour panel discussion with automotive SoC experts from CARIAD, Infineon, NXP and proteanTecs around fail-safe electronics.

Topics covered:

  • Fail-safe system architectures
  • Decoupling of hardware/ software
  • SoC and ECU lifetime monitoring solutions
  • Tradeoffs between reliability, performance and costs

Panel will be moderated by Ellen Carey, Chief External Affairs Officer at Circulor. Ellen has over 15 years of experience in clean energy technology campaigns, including electric vehicles and renewable energy. Her career includes senior positions at Samsung, Audi of America, SAFE, and the Electrification Coalition. Ellen collaborates with corporations, policymakers, NGOs, and the press to promote Circulor's role in bringing transparency and traceability to complex industrial supply chains.
