The collaboration will leverage leading-edge Arm processors with Arteris system IP to enable autonomous driving, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), cockpit and infotainment, vision, radar and lidar, body and chassis control, and other automotive subsystems.
The partnership is intended to help customers realise SoCs with high performance and power efficiency for complex and demanding safety-critical tasks with differing workloads while reducing project schedules and costs.
“The automotive industry is at a critical inflection point with demand for autonomy, more capable ADAS, richer driver experiences and electrification driving the need for more capable SoCs and microcontroller units (MCUs),” said Ian Smythe, vice president product marketing at Arm. “Our expanded collaboration with Arteris gives our mutual customers access to a greater choice of market-leading, safe, integrated and optimized automotive solutions, enabling faster time to market.”
Designers creating automotive electronics are using Arm’s broad portfolio for core compute leveraging the Arm AE roadmap including Cortex-A processors, Cortex-R, Cortex-M, and Mali. Developers are also using Arteris’ system IP which consists of FlexNoC and Ncore interconnect IP and Magillem IP deployment software to assemble automotive SoCs.
This extended partnership means that Arteris and Arm will now be able to provide customers with an integrated and optimised flow, enabling ISO 26262 systems with the highest automotive safety integrity levels to address automotive SoC design challenges.
“Arteris continues to see very strong demand for automotive systems because of growing demands for intelligence and sensing and the resulting need for high-performance compute with advanced system-on-chip connectivity,” said K. Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris. “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Arm to accelerate best-in-class solutions to support semiconductor companies, Tier 1 suppliers, automotive OEMs, and ride-sharing companies in creating the new world of transportation.”
