    Automotive electronics design is about to take a giant leap forward

    The trickle-down effect from increased government regulations and from car consumers’ embrace of electronics is far-reaching. These consequences challenge engineering teams more and more. Think about the shift from 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) to 32-bit devices. The shift is driven by increasing vehicle electronics-system performance requirements, and who doesn’t like better performance? But as...

    Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33: Secure by Construction

    An article from Semicast Research, published in Design & Reuse in January 2017, described Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 as “Born Secure”. I believe that this statement says something crucially profound about the direction of the microcontroller industry. There is no need to rehearse the recent history of hacks and attacks on the increasingly connected world of devices. These have exposed a simple truth –...
