SEPTEMBER 2020 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 89 Summary In conclusion, I will thread the sections of this column together. IPC-2231A is currently in the working draft, and there are proposals for additions to the document that greatly enhance its usability and value to designers everywhere. Your input into the document is welcome, and if you review the draft document and find that it is missing some critical other value for X, then you are invited to join the effort and have your voice be heard. If you would like to join the IPC 1-14 DFX Subcommittee, or if you would like to review the document as part of the final draft for industry review, please con- tact At its core, IPC-2231 is built to capture board design best-practices and condense them into a repeatable, reliable guide for creating excellent boards. After all, as the philosophical historian William Durant once wrote, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." DESIGN007 Patrick Crawford is the manager of design programs and related indus- try programs at IPC.

This ranges from L1 to L4 systems uniquely designed to create an open platform for Tier-1 suppliers and Automakers. Designed to address the growing complexities associ- ated with developing advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), including safety compliance, the integrated soft- ware and SoC platform aims to address the growing needs of the automotive ecosystem for scalable and upgradable solutions, which require highly advanced and power-effi- cient compute, connectivity and cloud service capabilities across all vehicle tiers. This platform will integrate Veoneer's fifth generation per- ception software and driving policy software with the cur- rent and future Snapdragon Ride portfolio. The parties have signed a non-binding letter of intent and expect to finalize a definitive agreement during second half of 2020. "We are pleased to work with Qualcomm Technologies to develop next generation solutions for ADAS and collaborative and autonomous driving. Working with a recognized leader like Qualcomm Technologies, using their ground-breaking Snapdragon Ride products, provides us the remaining piece of the puzzle. This relationship not only strengthens our product portfolio, but also broadens our go-to-market position and opportunities, while giving customers more ways to access world-leading technology," said Jan Carlson, Chairman, President & CEO, Veoneer. "There has been a growing desire within the automo- tive ecosystem to have a full SoC and Stack solution that can scale from the entry tier of active safety systems to higher-end automated driving solutions. Combining our best-in-class product roadmap of integrated auto- motive platforms, which supports broader functional- ities like 5G/4G, telematics and infotainment, with Veo- neer's proven software stack for perception and driving, creates a unique offering to support this need. Qualcomm Technologies remains committed to offering high perfor- mance and advanced automotive solutions for all vehicle tiers and levels and we look forward to working with an industry pioneer like Veoneer to accelerate innovation to deliver comprehensive systems," said Cristiano Amon, President of Qualcomm Incorporated.
