Driving Virtual Prototyping of Automotive Electronics
The regular 36 month to 48 month development cycles of Automotive Electronics is relatively long compared to the development cycle of semiconductor devices. This is due to different system levels, different value chains and different development processes. To keep up with the development speed of consumer electronics and meet the customer expectations the development cycle of Automotive Electronics needs to be decreased. Enabling virtual prototyping from the device level into automotive applications and systems is an important step to accelerate the time to market.
