Recently, Calterah Semiconductor has attained the Automotive Cybersecurity Management Certification issued by TÜV Rheinland to ISO/SAE 21434 Road Vehicles-Cybersecurity Engineering (hereinafter referred to as “ISO/SAE 21434”), making it a pioneer amongst China’s fabless companies to have achieved this certification. Having achieved ISO 26262 Functional Safety Management Certification and ISO 26262 ASIL-B Certification for its Alps SoCs, this time Calterah further manifests its cybersecurity development and management capabilities that are compliant with the international standard.
Along with constant advances, the industry of intelligent connected vehicles is also witnessing increasing cyber interferences, cyber attacks, and risks of relevant damage. Therefore, the effective control of such risks and the protection of information security of vehicle networks are in growing demand. In the automotive industry, ISO/SAE 21434, a significant guiding document for cybersecurity of road vehicles, plays an essential role in related development and compliance. As the first international standard, ISO/SAE 21434 provides a standardized framework, in which cybersecurity is established as an indispensable engineering element throughout the vehicle lifecycle. By implementing cybersecurity processes in the development lifecycle, for one thing, automotive manufacturers can make vehicles more capable of preventing and tackling potential cyber hazards and threats, so as to ensure the safety of vehicles and end-users, and for another, suppliers at all tiers, provided with a standard of implementation, can better meet requirements of international regulations for automotive cybersecurity management.
Calterah has pioneered the establishment of cybersecurity management processes that comply with ISO/SAE 21434 in China for threat identification, attack prevention, design verification, emergency response, etc. This international certification is a solid demonstration that Calterah’s products can fulfill the requirements of international cybersecurity management system throughout the whole lifecycle and that Calterah has the capability of providing Tier-1s and OEMs with products compliant with ISO/SAE 21434 and WP.29 R155, thus ensuring the protection of vehicle cybersecurity.
As an IC design enterprise specializing in mmWave radar chips, Calterah has been continuously strengthening its R&D related systems for automotive-grade ICs. With its certifications of ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 26262 Functional Safety Management, and ASPICE, Calterah has established and implemented a comprehensive set of R&D and management processes for the full lifecycle of mmWave radar chips. Owing to this, the Alps family of SoC chips had become China’s first SoC product to obtain the ISO 26262 full compliance certification in 2021.
By far, Calterah’s CMOS mmWave radar SoCs have been adopted by most Chinese mainstream automotive OEMs and applied to more than 150 passenger vehicle models, helping to provide end-users with a safer and smarter driving experience. In the future, adhering to the safety-first design philosophy, Calterah will implement cybersecurity standards throughout the full product lifecycle, so as to promote the development of intelligent connected vehicles.
|In 2021, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) jointly developed the ISO/SAE 21434 Road Vehicles-Cybersecurity Engineering standard, which was later referenced by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in its explanatory document of UNECE WP.29 R155. Furthermore, the National Technical Committee of Auto Standardization, under the organization of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, is now formulating domestic technical requirements for vehicle information security. Meanwhile, Tier-1s and OEMs have also set out cybersecurity requirements for their suppliers.|
