@Amir N. Rahat  Yes, I am sure you are right. I interpreted "soft errors" as software errors given the speaker's accent--my bad.

Now, how about my question: Will cars become the new drivers of client computng technology?

Soft errors, not software errors...

You wrote "Memory cells are very compact [at 16nm] and memory lines are short and thus more susceptible to software errors, he added."

The length of memory lines does not seem to relate to software errors, and you probably meant soft error rates, relating to susceptability to cosmic radiation, which is worse the less capacitance there is on a line to resist the soft error.

Talk to us in Optima-DA if you have soft error problems, especially for automotive & ISO-26262. http://optima-da.com/

Do you agree with Renesas' engineers that cars could become the new drivers of client computing?
