Xilinx SoC targets next gen driver assistance systems

In a move it claims will accelerate the automotive industry's development and deployment of next generation driver assistance systems, Xilinx has unveiled its new ARM processor based Zyng-7000 all programmable SoC.

The company says the chip will reduce the cost and time to market of automotive driver assistance systems (ADAS) by using programmable system integration to lower bom.

"The ADAS space is evolving rapidly and Xilinx's automotive grade Zynq-7000 all programmable SoC is the game changer the industry needs to accelerate the pace of ADAS technology deployment," stated Nick DiFiore, director of Xilinx's automotive segment.

"The Zynq-7000 family allows ADAS developers to implement a familiar software based system, but with closely coupled, fully customised hardware accelerators that deliver a level of raw image processing performance and low power consumption that is simply not achievable with traditional multi-chip approaches."

According to DiFore, the Zynq-7000 family is the first in the industry to incorporate an ARM dual core Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system with tightly coupled programmable logic on a single die.

This combination, he claims, dramatically increases the performance critical for processing intensive real time ADAS, and enables greater system integration for bundling multiple applications while reducing bom.
