Portland Panel: ISO 26262 – For Automotive and Beyond

Interested in the way ISO 26262 will affect automotive electronic design and compliance? Or how this standard might impact other industries, such as the semiconductor market? Listen what the experts have to say.

Third Annual Portland State Univ. (PSU) Systems Engineering Forum Date: Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016 Time: 5:30pm (registration); 6pm (panel discussion); 7pm (networking) with drinks/snacks hosted by Jama Software Location: Jama Software, 135 SW Taylor St #200, Portland, OR 97204 Parking: Close to MAX line (Yamhill District Stop); several public parking garages RSVP: Forum is free to all technical professionals but limited to 100 participants. Please RSVP via Eventbite.

Description: ISO 26262 addresses the needs for an automotive-specific standard that deals with the functional safety of hardware-software electrical/electronic/programmable safety critical systems. In alignment with good system engineering practices, ISO 26262 uses a system of steps to manage functional safety and regulate product development throughout the lifecycle on today’s hardware and software integrated systems. Specifically, this standard details how to assign an acceptable risk level to a system or component and document the overall testing process.

What impact will this standard have on automotive electronic design, V&V and testing? What new tools might be needed for safety requirements tractability and risk management? How will compliance be handled? Will this standard set a precedence and framework – especially for simulation lifecycle management and V&V flows – for other industries such as the semiconductor market? These are some of the questions that a panel of experts will address from a tool vendor, designer, V&V engineer and end user point of viewpoints. Please join us for a lively discussion followed by a networking session with drinks and snacks.

Panelist: Bill Chown, CIO INCOSE and Product Director, System-Level Engineering, Mentor Graphics Derwyn Harris, Jama Software Co-Founder and Product Manager Mike Bucala, Lead Engineer – Vehicle Systems Quality, Daimler Trucks NA Ryan Slaugh, Project Engineer, Pacific NW Laboratories (PNNL) John Blyler (Moderator), JB Systems

TiE Oregon: Semiconductor Entrepreneurship - Opportunities & Challenges
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

What are the challenges facing semiconductor startups in today’s environment?

Is it enough to have developed a great technology?

Historically, semiconductor startups have had massive development costs & long development cycles. A fabless semiconductor has to typically raise > $50M with a development and time to volume cycle that lasts 3-4 years or more. Has this changed in the light of current advances in technology?

Founders of semiconductor startups often come from an engineering background. What business challenges do these founders face?

Our panel, constituted of Steve Sharp, Chairman Triquint & past CEO of Triquint Semiconductor, Howard Bubb, CEO Ambric & Manpreet Khaira, CEO Avnera will address these and other important issues related to the viability of the fabless semiconductor startups in the new millennium.

The panel will be moderated by Scott Keeney, CEO & Co-founder nLight, a manufacturer of semiconductor lasers
