A cutting-edge system-on-chip designed to replace traditional EV microcontrollers (Webinar)

Silicon Mobility invented the Field Programmable Control Unit (FPCU), a cutting-edge system-on-chip designed to replace traditional microcontrollers in the automotive sector. Over the past few years, Silicon Mobility has been diligently developing the 2nd generation of FPCUs, known as the OLEA® U FPCU series, now opening access to lead customers.

The OLEA U FPCU series has been built to address current and future needs in the automotive industry for real-time, safe and secure multi-control applications and functions grouping, including advanced control algorithms based on edge AI armed with protection against post-quantic cybersecurity threats.

During this webinar at the Fall Virtual Conference on EV Engineering we will go over the FPCU architecture and unveil the key new features of the OLEA U FPCU series:

  • Advanced eXecution and Events Control (AxEC 2.0), a data processing and real-time control unit based on programmable hardware and configurable peripherals with multi-FLU clusters.
  • Safety Integrity Level agent (SILant 2.0), dedicated to the FPCU and the system functional safety.
  • Flexible Hardware Security Module (FHSM), a sub-system dedicated to cybersecurity combined with a hardware programmable cluster supporting yet unidentified threats.
  • Multi-core CPU and virtualization, based on ARM Cortex-R52 clusters for multiple applications/functions executions into a single controller.

OLEA U is a scalable series of FPCUs that share a common software architecture which can be reused across different applications, saving time and money.

Challenges in EV testing: data acquisition for battery testing, vehicle dynamics and acoustics (Webinar)

This webinar, presented by imc Test & Measurement, is divided into three different topics for EV testing tasks. First, we speak about challenges in HV component and battery testing and present solutions including electrical, mechanical and thermal tests.

Then we look at challenges and higher demands on measurement technology to record vehicle dynamics parameters and present sensor solutions.

Last, we discuss acoustic challenges including pass-by noise, interior noise and how the sound power of individual vehicle components and assemblies can be determined.
