Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing

Ubiquitous calculations – IoT, end, cloud, data center and vice versa
Computer manufacturer Dell technologies rotates 81% share in VMWare of two independent public companies. Founded in 1998, VMWare provides network, application and cloud / data center management software. VMWare will pay a special dividend on its investment, which will generate $ 9.3- $ 9.7 billion for Dell to use to reduce its debt burden. Both companies plan to continue their trade agreement to work together. The deal will be completed in the 4th quarter of 2021.

The American telecommunications company Verizon starts business-oriented 5G internet service in 21 cities in the USA. Called 5G Business Internet, the service is fixed wireless, offering plans of 100, 200, 400 Mbps without data restrictions, using Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband technology.

Mavenir and Xilinx cooperates on massive MIMO (mMIMO) product with open RAN. Massive multiple-input multiple-output (mMIMO) is a wireless base station with an antenna array that can efficiently serve multiple mobile users and uses 5G bands, such as below 6 GHz and millimeter wave. Mavenir / Xilinx MMIMO combines Xilinx’s Category B O-RAN radio with Mavenir software, a virtualized radio access network (vRAN) that supports mMIMO. The companies expect the first Massive MIMO 64TRX product at the end of 2021.

Kodasip has been upgraded its Studio IC design and CodeSpace software tools with RISC-V tutorial, enhanced SDK, and linker support for developing connectivity scripts that represent a system memory card.

Nvidia has announced its new data processing unit (DPU), the BlueField-3 DPU for data centers. DPU adds AI and accelerated computing to accelerate software-defined network, storage, and cybersecurity in data centers. The security feature isolates and authenticates users to free up resources. “A new type of processor designed to process data center infrastructure software is needed to unload and accelerate the huge computational load of virtualization, networking, storage, security, and other AI services in the native cloud,” Jensen Huang said. founder and CEO of NVIDIA in a press release.

The hand reports on its cooperation with Nvidia hereincluding accelerating the final DPU by adding a GPU to the MarvelBased on Octeon’s DPte Arm family. DPUs are used for enterprise computing, 5G infrastructure and end applications. The NVIDIA GPU will unload loads such as image recognition and security in limited environments.

Nvidia revealed its Nvidia Drive Atlan SoC for automotive AI. The SoC features Nvidia GPUs, Arm processor cores, and Nvidia’s BlueField (DPU). Nvidia says it performs 1,000 trillion operations per second (TOPS). The chip is the newest of Nvidia’s three car SoCs (Nvidia Drive series), launched with Xavier (30 TOPS) in production today, the Orin (254 TOPS), due out in 2022, and the new Atlan will appeared in 2025 vehicles. Separately announced, Volvo Cars,, Zoox, and SAIC will now use Nvidia Drive, according to a press release.

Velodin and Ansys work on physics-based models of the Velodyne lidar sensor to add to Ansys’ VRXPERIENCE drive simulator. Their aim is to improve the hazard identification of automated vehicles.

Verizon announced that it will offer ultra-precise SaaS (software as a service) location, offered in 100 markets for advanced IoT and intelligent driving. The Hyper Precise Location (HPL) service corrects data from global satellite navigation systems (GNSS) in real time, for possible use of 5G end systems such as C-V2X (cellular vehicle to all) for cars, robotics, construction, agtech, and HD mapping. It is claimed that the accuracy is 1-2 centimeters (0.78 inches) in a 5G or 4G network. This a message follows last week that Verizon and the carmaker Honda work together on testing 5G and mobile computing networks (MEC) to improve automotive safety. Honda SAFE SWARM includes 5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Mobile Edge Compute by Verizon. The two companies hope the tests prove that AI may not be needed so badly by self-driving cars.

Cadence acquires In the direction, known for its use of the eye in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The acquisition is the latest in the announcement that Cadence is acquiring another CFD company called NUMECA. The target space target in which CFD can simulate airflow over a wing. The terms of the Pointwise deal were not disclosed.

Renaissance used Synopsis“DSO.ai (AI of Space Space Optimization) to design its automotive chips. The AI ​​system absorbs a large amount of data from chip design tools and detects PPA optimizations and workflow improvements with design development. “For its first year on the market alone, DSO.ai has already helped many customers achieve better PPA solutions in dozens of design projects,” said Stelios Diamantidis, senior director of artificial intelligence solutions at Synopsys. statement. “AI gives EDA a new dimension to address the increasing complexity of silicon technology, accelerate product life, and enable engineering teams to scale.”

H3C semiconductor used designers Ansys’ multiphysical platform for creating ENGIANT 660 and passing strict testing requirements, according to a press release. network processor chip that allows routing, AI, 5G backhaul and cybersecurity applications.

Siemens Software for digital industries has signed an agreement to acquire OneSpin Solutions, official software for checking integrated circuits. Siemens will add OneSpin technology to its portfolio of Xcelerator validation products.
