Efficient computing for AI and autonomous cars

|
More and more ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are added to cars, trucks and even trains. For those vehicles to function optimally, there has to be a lot of development in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), sensor processing and image recognition....

How does compiler qualification actually work?

|
We frequently discuss compiler qualification and its importance in making sure that your safety-critical components work properly and adhere to safety standards. But what actually is compiler qualification? How does it work? In essence, as far as most functional...

Two things you can depend on: the C language and SuperTest

|
It’s the end of another decade. One that saw supercomputer performance grow by a factor of 100, so Moore’s law is still going strong. Almost as old as Moore’s law, the C language and SuperTest are also alive and kicking. With the recent C18 and SuperTest Vermeer...

Using an open-source ISA makes compiler validation essential

|
Open-source software is everywhere – in the global IT infrastructure, in our PCs and in our cars. On the other hand, open-source hardware is far less visible. With the emergence of RISC-V that may be about to change. While we see great potential for open-source...

Tailor-made compiler qualification for a perfect fit

|
The realisation that qualified compilers are a necessity in the development of safety-critical applications is finally hitting home in the automotive industry. Yet not every company has the capacity to qualify a compiler themselves for their specific configuration and...
