Automotive cold boot
A cold boot scenario happens when a device is booting from a no power state. This can happen in multiple cases, for example, when a car starts or when there is a loss of battery power. In Automotive applications, the system is expected to fully regain its functionality within seconds, as modern electronics systems include critical features that must be accessible at all times. This need is driven by safety and regulatory requirements that have to be fulfilled in the majority of automotive electronics, such as EDR, IVI, cluster, and ADAS solutions.
