Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


Complexity and electrification of automobiles increases steadily, which involves an enhancement of safety-requirements of applied E/E-components, controllers and their connection and interaction in between. As a fundamental safety-relevant standard, the E-Gas monitoring concept has been introduced in the '90s. Recently, a new version of this E-Gas monitoring concept has been published, which includes the application of multi-core processors. In this context, the paper contains an analysis and evaluation of modern multi-core architectures in automotive applications and discusses requirements, benefits and potentials for integrated safety mechanisms. In addition it is discussed, if modern safety-certified automotive micro-controller are able to replace the well-established 3-level monitoring concept.
