Providing Performance & Security for the Connected Car

Connected cars make our lives easier by integrating automation, entertainment and mobility with our favorite mode of transport. Generating and receiving a torrent of data, they need the speed of the latest memory and interface technologies to handle the load. Given the critical importance to comfort and safety, that data needs the highest order of protection. Rambus silicon IP solutions help ensure we can get the very most from our connected cars with the assurance that all our data stays secure.

High Horsepower Computing

Powering through 1GB per second of data generation and beyond is a breeze for the connected cars coming down the road. Infotainment, ADAS, sensor systems, communications and more demand the ability to handle real-time data and lots of it. With the technology that makes possible high-performance computing and the fastest networking devices, Rambus interface IP for memory and chip-to-chip connections enable the blazing fast performance needed in chips for connected cars.

Going Beyond GPUs with GDDR6

Going Beyond GPUs with GDDR6

Supported by Micron Technology, SK Hynix and Samsung, GDDR6 SGRAM will feature a maximum data transfer rate of 16 Gbps, along with an operating voltage of 1.35V. GDDR6 offers higher densities compared to previous-generation graphics memory. In addition, GDDR6 doubles the speed (12–16 Gb/s) of GDDR5 and provides more than 5X the 3.2 Gb/s speed of DDR4. Although initially targeted at game consoles and PC graphics, the latest iteration of GDDR is expected to be deployed across multiple verticals, with Micron specifically highlighting the data center and automotive sector.

Protecting Safety, Revenue and Brand: Combating Counterfeit Semiconductors in the Automotive Supply Chain

The counterfeit market for semiconductors is real, sizable and growing. Industry analysts peg the current market for fake semiconductors at $75B. Counterfeit chips pose great risk to driver comfort and safety, to say nothing of the severe negative consequences they present to automaker revenues and brand. The good news is there are immediate and cost-effective measures available to secure the semiconductor supply chain and stop counterfeiters in their tracks.
Easy Security Implementation

Securing the Supply Chain

The CryptoManager platform is comprised of a tightly integrated security ecosystem that enables simple and rapid integration into new and existing systems. The Root of Trust can be embedded in the automotive chipset, or implemented as firmware running in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to provide robust endpoint security, while the secure cloud-based Infrastructure manages the in-field provisioning and management of keys from chip-to-cloud-to-car to enable OEMs to delivers Feature-as-a-Service (FaaS) on the road.

Hardware Security Modules with CryptoManager

With the rapid growth of connected cars and services, OEMs and Tier One’s need to secure their vehicles to prevent access by unauthorized groups via V2X or OTA updates. The Rambus CryptoManager platform provides a proven automotive-grade Hardware Security Module (HSM) that exceeds the EVITA, SHE and TPM standards, enabling the highest level of vehicle security available for wireless automotive communications.
