Ensuring Chip Reliability From The Inside

Monitoring activity and traffic is emerging as an essential ingredient in complex, heterogeneous chips used in automotive, industrial, and data center applications.

This is particularly true in safety-critical applications such as automotive, where much depends on the system operating exactly right at all times. To make autonomous and assisted driving possible, a mechanism to ensure systems are operating correctly in real time needs to be in place. Today, this typically is referred to as in-chip monitoring, runtime monitoring, in-system monitoring, and even built-in self-test.
