52 SMT007 MAGAZINE I JULY 2023 Article by Dr. Eyal Weiss CYBORD As our daily activities become increas- ingly digitized, the global demand for micro- chips and electronic components will con- tinue to skyrocket. As this need grows, there is also a greater need for assessment capabili- ties to avoid tragic malfunctions and debilitat- ing product-wide recalls. Consider the automotive industry where lives are at stake should a vehicle include a faulty chip. Automakers are bound to strict technical standards such as ISO 26262, which requires them to use state-of-the-art technol- ogy and to identify potential systemic and hardware defects during the manufacturing process. But the industry is not up to date; it's not adopting state-of-the-art technology when it comes to chip quality and reliability. As our cars become increasingly digital, industry leaders simply cannot afford to be complacent with insufficient traceability. With a rapid increase 1 in their reliance on automated processes and digitally advanced chips, auto- mobiles today host complex electronic func- tions from sensors and cameras. As the tech- nological focus of the industry changes, trace- ability must improve to meet the needs of an industry far different from the one it was even a decade ago. To safeguard manufacturing, improve out- put efficiency and quality, and ultimately Driving Without a Map: Automotive OEMs Need Exploratory Traceability
