Xilinx Accelerates Automotive Driver Assistance Deployment At SAE Convergence 2012

In addition to its performance advantages, the Xilinx Automotive (XA) Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC is ideal for ADAS applications as it is qualified to meet the stringent temperature, quality and reliability requirements for automotive applications.

"Consumer demand for driver assistance applications is strong and growing but continues to be held back due to high manufacturing and development costs.  To overcome this, it is vital to 'right size' the underlying components through increasing integration and to create common platforms that can be customized for a variety of ADAS applications – this will lower unit costs, increase economies of scale and shorten development cycles," said Mark Fitzgerald, associate director global automotive practice, Strategy Analytics. "By integrating more and more into fewer and fewer chips, customizable solutions hold the promise of addressing these requirements of automotive manufacturers to develop a new generation of ADAS applications available across more of their cars."

Current ADAS solutions typically employ multiple chips, but Xilinx overcomes this with its Zynq-7000 family, the industry's first SoC family to incorporate an ARM dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with tightly coupled programmable logic on a single die. This combination dramatically increases the performance critical for processing-intensive real-time ADAS, and enables greater system integration for bundling multiple applications while reducing BOM. 

See Xilinx's Automotive video to find out how Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs eliminate the need for multi-chip solutions, provide higher system integration, and allow for the optimum level of hardware resources and scalability spanning low- to high-end ADAS.

"The Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC is a great programmable platform for upcoming automotive driver assistance applications that require intensive real-time video processing, parallel execution of multiple advanced algorithms and versatile interfacing with sensors and vehicles' communication backbones," said Davor Kovačec, founder and CEO of Xylon. "The abundant performance and reprogrammability of the Zynq-7000 devices enables us to design SoCs that outperform competing solutions and which enable a new level of system differentiation through a combination of hardware-accelerated video inputs from multiple camera inputs and the ability to quickly adapt to ever changing sensor setups and interfacing."
