Embedded Design Moves to Sensors

In the past, sensors were considered as translators from the physical aspect to its analog electrical representation—for example, from light to current, temperature to voltage, or from magnetic field to voltage. The electrical signals were then transferred with sensitive wiring to the amplifier and via ADCs to the data processor. Nowadays, it is possible to move more and more of the embedded design to the sensor. An example of such an embedded design is the MAX78000 AI accelerator, a system on a chip (SoC) that can bring the RTOS and AI algorithm directly to the sensor. The data preprocessing with the AI algorithm enables the use of cost-effective wireless and wired low data bandwidth networks. The presentation explains the necessary steps to implement a neural network to enable an AI SoC at the edge.

Intelligent Machine Health Monitoring at the Edge Using Unsupervised Deep Learning Techniques

The increasing availability of ultra low power devices with highly optimized neural acceleration hardware enables extraction of ever more complex insights at the edge, no matter where they are deployed. Edge AI devices that also have the means to collect and transmit their own datasets for training can enable a data-centric approach, which allows each AI model to be tailored for the exact situation in which it is deployed. Detecting machine degradation with autoencoding neural networks is one example where unlabeled data and unsupervised learning techniques can be leveraged to enable the implementation of an automated data collection, training, and deployment pipeline. Thereby, shortening the path between development commencement and actionable insights.

Simplify Remote Nodes by Robustly Extending I2C and SPI Serial Buses Over Long Distances

Advances in sensor technology create new opportunities for remote measurements. SPI or I2C are common interfaces to the sensor device, but they are unsuitable as the field bus for connecting to the local processor. Adding a remote processor and a field bus transceiver addresses this challenge but increases the cost and size of the remote node. Different solutions for extending the length of SPI or I2C buses are available. Line drivers or amplifiers may increase the usable bus length to many meters; however, the connecting bus is still vulnerable to disturbances, voltage gradients, or noise transients which can corrupt the communication and/or damage the sensitive bus components. Serial extenders convert the SPI or I2C signals into a field bus and then back to SPI or I2C at the remote node and provide a longer, more robust and protected connection. The simplest extenders perform a 1-1 mapping of a signal line to a field bus and so require many twisted pairs. For example, extending a SPI bus requires 3× pairs for the clock and data lines and additional pairs for each remote peripheral. In most cases, this negates the benefits of the simpler node. Analog Devices’ serial extenders solve this challenge by using intelligent extenders that incorporate bus controllers and peripherals to encode the data on the field buses.

10BASE-T1S, Supporting the Transition to Zonal Architectures and Ready for Automotive Production

The automotive industry is presently going through one of its most revolutionary periods. Car manufacturers need to provide solutions to several significant megatrends such as electrification, autonomy, and the fully connected car in a short period of time. One result of this is the OEMs’ need to radically modify their electrical and electronic architecture to support the new functionality. The industry is moving towards a common new architecture often referred to as a zonal architecture, which determines connectivity by physical location rather than function. One key enabling technology for zonal-based architectures is the new Ethernet standard 10BASE-T1S, which enables optimized connectivity to edge nodes removing the need for protocol translation required today for legacy connectivity technologies such as FlexRay and CAN. In this presentation, we will introduce the 10BASE-T1S technology and the system advantages that it brings, provide insight into the near complete specification activities to ensure smooth rollout of the technology in time for next generation vehicles, and discuss the different product offerings including Analog Devices E2B solution, which provides the most optimized edge node connectivity.

Securing Data at the Edge in Industrial Automated Control Systems

Industrial automated control systems (IACS) including critical infrastructure such as power grid, water distribution or sewage are subject to cyber-attacks daily. Since the Stuxnet days, many initiatives aimed at making industrial automated systems more secure have been launched. Among them, IEC 62443 standard is probably the one with the strongest impact on new IACS system design. One may intuitively think that the priority is to secure the decision points such as control rooms, servers, and gateways. However, this presentation will explain how important it is to secure information at the edge and how to implement security in IACS components that are often constrained in terms of computing resources or power budget.

Digital Transformation—How Does It Transform the Industrial Sensor Design?

Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing, and digital factory are names used to describe the evolution of manufacturing that provides higher levels of productivity, increased flexibility, and greater agility, while consuming less energy and materials for more sustainable manufacturing. One of the key strategies is to collect rich data sets from the edge of industrial automation close to the sensing and action, communicate these data sets seamlessly across the industrial operation and information networks, and then apply advanced analytics to optimize the manufacturing flows. This rich data strategy is then driving change from the discrete on/off or analog 4 mA to 20 mA loop connected edge field devices connected via technologies such as Ethernet 10BASE-T1L/APL. In this session we will discuss what are the practical implications for the edge field device design, from the overall architecture to more detailed aspects such as power, explosive safety, functional safety, and security.

ISO 21434 Cybersecurity Compliance for EV Wireless Battery Management Is Essential

Wireless battery management for electric vehicles (EV) is now a reality, finally reaping the long-promised advantages of wiring harness elimination and pack simplification. These in turn reduce the vehicle weight that help extend driving range and enable automation in manufacturing that increase mechanical reliability of the pack. Going wireless is not without challenges. Technological innovations are needed to achieve wireless robustness to interference and to ensure safety. Yet the system would not be complete if system security was not considered from the beginning. After all, the threat of the wireless interface being exploited by a remote malicious attacker to gain control of a mission critical application within a vehicle is a scary proposition. Proper consideration needs to be given for cybersecurity risk management across the lifecycle of a wireless battery management system (wBMS), which starts with a threat assessment if there is none publicly available. ISO 21434 outlines a process for developing a secure product for use in automotive from concept to development to deployment and end of life. System security needs to account for all the stages in a product’s lifecycle, so that none of the lifecycle stages expose the weakest link due to unexpected behavior or vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity is a critical and urgent need that starts from holistic system design, even in systems, which end up being subsystems of bigger systems. Compliance to ISO 21434 on a process level is not enough; the product itself needs to undergo levels of validation testing and vulnerability scanning to gain the proper assurance. For a mission critical application, the highest cybersecurity assurance level (CAL 4) is necessary. This talk discusses wBMS security goals, how they are derived and developed on an ISO 21434 compliant process, and what sets a secure wBMS solution apart from others.
