There’s Safety in Numbers: Heterogenous Processors for ADAS Applications
Deep learning techniques for embedded vision processors are critical in the push toward fully autonomous vehicles. Processors must quickly interpret content and context from sensors and cameras and react in real-time. To accomplish this in an energy-efficient way, embedded vision processors often employ heterogenous, multicore architectures that are optimized for the variety of processing tasks that enable the car to “see” and “interpret” its environment. In addition to meeting stringent performance and power requirements, automotive semiconductors responsible for critical driving tasks must also be certified to the highest levels of automotive safety. This presentation will discuss processor IP designed specifically to meet the current and next-generation requirements of ADAS vision applications, including Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D classification as defined in the ISO 26262 Functional Safety specification.
