Abstract
Since vehicles got connected by cellular technology associated services, so called “connected services” are of key interest to vehicle users, automotive industry, internet service providers and other stakeholders of the internet. Consumers, who are familiar with service offerings by smart phones and spend an ever longer time of their day in their vehicles, request similar kind of applications in their car to support their daily work and empower their leisure activities with safe, comfortable and reliable services. Besides passenger cars there is an attractive area for fleet managers and logistic providers with commercial vehicles, who typically look for services optimizing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the vehicle or vehicle fleet. Finally, due to connected vehicles and exchange of data between vehicles and infrastructure, new possibilities of traffic management and multi-modal traffic scenarios become reality increasing safety, flexibility and comfort of individual mobility. This presentation wants to give an overview on the various opportunities of connected services, starting not from the technological drivers but more from the user point of view. Therefore we would not like to focus on technology first, but create an overall view on driver and passenger requirements, including private as well as commercial users, stretching from leisure to work scenarios. Based on this user centric view specific examples for services will highlight the vehicle becoming part of the connected world and forming the 3rd living space. Such examples at the end will give chance to focus on some technological challenges, like security issues or automated driving.

Abstract
Energy management in vehicles and the control of energy consumption is one of the challenges in the development of energy-efficient vehicles. One of the key components are power semiconductors , switching and controlling all different kind of car body loads from low to medium rated electrical power and controlling the onward power distribution to further peripheral ECUs. The semiconductors have to meet several automotive requirements on electrical performance, temperature range, EMC, etc. but also important are protection mechanism (Overload, short current, reverse polarity protection) and diagnostic features (open load, short circuit, overvoltage). These topics are related to the functional safety of the control units, a field that becomes more and more important especially in connection with driver assistant systems and autonomous driving According to definitions in IEC 61508 standard functional safety is the part of the overall safety that depends on a system or equipment operating correctly in response to its inputs. The objectives are detection of a potentially dangerous condition and activation of a protective or corrective mechanism to prevent hazardous events arising or providing mitigation to reduce the consequence of the hazardous event. The adaption of the IEC 61508 standard is the ISO 26262 standard, that defines functional safety for automotive equipment. With focus on power semiconductor this presentation illustrates some methods and techniques in the development of safety related automotive systems. It shows the SysML modeling process for safety architecture and safety related path and introduces analyses techniques like FTA or FMEA for an effective technical safety solution. Typical requirements for the power semiconductor devices are addressed. The presentation concludes with a discussion of quantitative safety analysis methods to verify the safety development.

Abstract
This presentation will show the challenges seen from the viewpoint of a silicon foundry for Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IPs developed for automotive high-temperature applications. NVMs used in harsh automotive environments need to be robust and reliable. Especially ICs which are qualified for high-temperature applications with operating temperatures up to 175°C have additional challenges which need to be fulfilled by the used NVM IPs as well. This includes not only long data retention and a certain endurance cycling, but also ESD robustness which can only be measured on silicon by different layout variants of the same NVM IP. Depending on NVM application requirements, different memory principles such as SONOS or floating gate bitcells can be used and optimized to achieve best results. Especially for integrated circuits developed for safety critical applications based on ISO TS 26262, there is a need to ensure comprehensive testability, critical signal observability and monitoring during the application. Test capability means that for example that the measurement of the ‘high’ and ‘low’ window of each memory cell is considered. Signal monitoring includes access to charge pump, bandgap and memory reference voltage levels whereas and fault tolerance refers to the usage of parity bits, single or even double bit error detection and correction.

Abstract
System and chip qualification and production release procedures are based today on the AEC Q100 standard. These documents describe a set of tests which are specific to certain failure mechanisms, induced f.e. by higher temperature. However, these tests are today very limited for the estimation of failure rates or even to demonstrate a zero failure rate, as required by the automotive industry. First, the tests are performed on a very limited number of samples (e.g. 77) not allowing to show a low ppm failure level. Second, the tests assume a certain failure mode acceleration by f.e. high application temperature. These models are very often not known and failures show a fully other behavior and acceleration in the field (due to combination of technology excursions, defects, combined voltage, current, temperature, humidity and mechanical stress). Third, the component validation after test is performed only by electrical testing. The talk will show examples of failures not covered by qualification and production tests as well as some approaches to improve reliability assessment process. The physical and chemical analysis methods and tools (like XPS, AES, TOF-SIMS) are highly developed to analyze materials and failure modes in semiconductor and system level technologies. The application of these analysis techniques after climate, voltage or mechanical stress application can create a much deeper view inside chip and system weaknesses and failure modes. The talk shows some typical failure mechanisms found in a lab as service provider for many different companies. Some weak spots are discussed with recommendations for improvements.

Abstract
The automotive electronics market is growing fast and is undergoing radical transformation. Until now, electronics components for vehicles were based on rather mature technologies and produced by specialist manufacturers. The most advanced semiconductor technologies will make possible the computing power and memory requirements necessary to analyze data provided by advanced sensors. Quality management is foremost in importance to automotive electronics. Given the safety issues at stake when electronic components are in use in a vehicle in movement, failure of these components is unacceptable; hence, the stringent quality programs being developed. The automobile industry has developed strict regulations to follow, which includes traceability of all manufacturing processes. In particular, modification of materials used must be documented. From a material (e.g. gases or chemicals) supplier perspective, this implies specific quality measures, which include alignment to the quality management techniques used by semiconductor manufacturers. In particular, quality and supply chain robustness are increasingly critical. In this talk, we will discuss the different steps being taken to improve the quality of materials delivered to automotive semiconductor manufacturers through global monitoring of the entire supply chain. Furthermore, we will present examples of long-term supply strategies for specific materials in order to support customers’ product development and commercialization. Finally, with the introduction of electronic components built on advanced technologies by large semiconductor manufacturers, but relatively new to the automotive electronics industry, we will reflect on the global impact on material quality and supply chain.
