E/E Systems Article Roundup

By Sarah Bartash

Read on for a recent sampling of industry articles on Capital E/E systems development and electrical systems. 

1. Automotive Software & Cybersecurity

Publication: EE Times/Automotive DesignLine (June)

Description:  Today, there are more lines of code in the connected car than other highly sophisticated machines, including the U.S. Air Force F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Boeing 787 Dreamliner, or the U.S. Space Shuttle. Safety and security are paramount concerns, so all onboard systems must be secure both while the vehicle is in motion or sitting idle. This article explores discusses the requirements of connected vehicle security and explains how this security architecture can protect vehicle entry points as well as in-vehicle networks from threats.

2. Commercial or In-House Tools for Electrical/Electronic Systems Development?

Publication: Embedded Computing Design (May)

Description: Powerful commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software solutions are now available to support E/E systems development, including wire harness manufacturing, but is such a tool right for you? Read on to learn about the trade-offs between developing in-house tools and buying a COTS system, a task often referred to as the ‘make or buy’ decision.

3. How to minimize risk and address complexity in aerospace electrical programs today (EBOOK)

Publication: eeWorld eBook on Aero Electrification (June)

Description: A digital twin allows companies to design, validate and build in a virtualized environment. Digital threads enable multiple processes across domains to integrate data from the beginning of the product lifecycle to final sustainment. In this detailed and comprehensive ebook, find out how aerospace OEMs must retire risk earlier in the program lifecycle to avoid unforeseen problems during key milestones, and how a digital twin and digital thread can speed up Aerospace programs ability to reduce risk and meet compliance.

4. To build or to buy? Advantages of in-house vs commercially available E/E systems engineering software

Publication: Siemens Blog (June)

Description: E/E systems engineering is a demanding and costly task that affects multiple engineering domains. Here are three approaches to supportive E/E systems engineering software to cut cost and speed design, and a rundown of how to choose what will work best for you.

5. MBSE enables advanced E/E architecture development

Publication: Siemens Blog (June)

Description:  To cope with growing complexity, automotive, aerospace and commercial vehicle Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) must evolve their architectural design processes to leverage model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and the digital thread. Read on to learn how MBSE can provide crucial capabilities for developing the increasingly sophisticated E/E architectures of modern cars, planes and commercial vehicles.
