Future mobility disruptions include the development of autonomous and connected vehicles, electric powertrains, and shared mobility solutions. These trends will shape and impact the semiconductor design value chain:
- The development of autonomous vehicles will impact chip design, verification, and IP through demand for high-performance computing, connectivity, functional safety, security, and reliability.
- Software-rich automotive solution-specific EDA products will serve the needs of automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to accelerate R&D, verification, and testing.
- Partnerships in the semiconductor value chain will play an important role to make these mobility disruptions reality. Suppliers in the design ecosystem could partner on system architecture, design, development, and verification
Join McKinsey & Company and SEMI's Electronic System Design Alliance at this webinar to learn about emerging new opportunities in Design and IP being driven by the rapid growth and disruptions in the global automotive markets and supply chains.
