Jeff, Chuck - Thank you both for sharing your expertise with Design News during today's Radio Show. We learned a lot, and appreciate your taking time to be with us today. Thanks!

Iron

Makes sense.  Did some R&D work back in the 90s for geographic sw partitioning.  With the right power distribution and grounding schemes, can save copper overall.  Problem was the functionally-based silos at the OE.

Thanks

Iron

This has been great fun - thanks for the opportunity and questions!

Several OE's are moving to geographic SW partitioning for electronics modules for non-mission critical functions

Wiring for HEV/EVs is a much larger gauge with signicant requirements for connector safety - obvious at 300V. You literally double the amount of copper of a full hybrid vehicle,

You mentioned zone control schemes.  Is this geographic software partitioning for electronics modules, vs functionally-based modules?

Iron

ISO 26262 will be key to mission critical systems - not clear yet if it will be significant beyond that

How is the wiring for hybrids and EVs different than gas-burning cars?

Iron

48V systems do present exciting opportunities for electronics based systems - but it is not close to going across the board yet

Delphi has approx 2000 software and systems engineers and that number will definitely grow

For sure we are working on the building blocks for autonomous vehicles - we discussed several asin active safety, but also includes vehicle to vehicle technology and GPS systems

are North American OEM big on automotive Saftey such as ISO 26262 for wider systems? do you see any time line were more and more platforms or systems will be requiring to meet these standards? 

Iron

We use several of the commercially available tools to develop and validate SW. It can vary with the auto manufacturer as they often have a preference. But we rely heavily on our internal SW processes to ensure high reliability of delivered code

 

How many software engineers does Delphi employee today, and how do you see this growing next year?

Iron

Jeff, one thing we didn't touch on today was autonomous vehicles. Is Delphi working on systems for autonomous vehicles?

Blogger

How important will MCU bandwidth be, going forward?

Iron

Do you see all future cars including the new 48V supply network and will this require new offerings from the component suppliers?

Iron

Embedded software validation is very complex, but with rigorous software and systems processes, automotive grade can be achieved

 

What software tools are you using or considering to use to help you with embedded software; especially to follow it through the lifecycle of the vehicle?

Iron

Thanks Jeff and Chuck for a fascinating discussion.

Iron

Delphi has several platforms on the road today where 30% of the wiring architecture was eliminated

 

How much of a challenge is embedded software validation?  With a billion lines of code, it sounds daunting.

Iron

How much of today's wiring could be eliminated from the vehicle?

Iron

Good morning - glad to be here!

From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
