Q&A: Jyotika Athavale, Intel Corporation
"Optimizations and trade-offs... cost and scalability are all important considerations..."
Automotive IQ's Automotive Safety and Security Online event takes place on June 30-July 1. We've put together a great agenda of specially chosen speakers and sponsors who will deliver their interesting and insightful thoughts all for free to our members.
If you haven't had chance, sign up below to enjoy every session of the event from the comfort of your own home office.
Ahead of the event, we have been profiling some of our speakers, giving you the chance to understand why we've selected them to present as part of our event.
Meet the speaker
Jyotika Athavale (left) is Principal Engineer and Platform Enabling Lead Technologist at Intel, and is based in the US.
She has over 20 years of experience in the semiconductor and EDA industry, working on incubation technologies and strategies for future platforms. She is also a recognized industry expert with in-depth technical knowledge of platform technologies and architectures for reliability and functional safety, as well as contiguous domains.
We caught up with her ahead of our Automotive Safety and Security Online event:
Automotive IQ Your role at Intel is Principal Engineer and Platform Enabling Lead Technologist. Could you share some insight into what this entails, and some of the types of work this involves?
Jyotika Athavale I work on incubation technologies and strategies for future IOT platforms, with a focus on RAS and functional safety, as well as contiguous domains – real time and security. I also lead flight safety architecture activities, as well RAS modeling for IOT platforms at Intel.
AIQ Certification seems to be the name of the game – could you share some of your experience of meeting requirements for these very complex systems?
JA Higher levels of integration, together with technology scaling, and the growing complexity in HW and SW, are making it more challenging to meet requirements.
New failure modes need to be considered, and also the margins are diminishing with workload consolidated systems (higher functional integration).
This calls for optimizations and tradeoffs, also considering the interdependencies and intersections between technology domains. Cost and scalability are other important considerations, and assessing mitigations in all layers of the stack is important.
AIQ Autonomy is likely to impact the lives of a significant portion of society in the future. How do you see the experience of different disciplines - particularly aviation - coming together to solve the challenges that technology brings?
With the trend towards enabling electric and hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing eVTOL) aircraft; urban air mobility (UAM); and unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM), we are seeing innovations in multiple technologies coming together including safety, reliability, AI, Comms and Security.
Standardization bodies and industry consortiums, research institutions are all working to address some of these collectively as well.
AIQ Your session in Automotive IQ’s Automotive Safety and Security Online event will answer the question ‘How do you address challenges for functional safety intersections with contiguous technology domains?’ Could you share some of the main themes of your talk?
The main theme of this talk will be considerations for coexistence and interdependencies between functional safety with real time, RAS and security.
We will discuss trends for safety critical platforms, and the considerations for optimization in the intersections of these technology domains needed to meet system level requirements for avionics, industrial and automotive safety critical platforms.
