3D Surround View Camera

slab-divider-red

Automatic park assist (APA) and automated valet parking (AVP) features require surround view capabilities for low-speed driving situations. The XA portfolio powers multiple generations of surround view systems, and continues to address the industry’s integration of sensor configurations through our scalable portfolio. Xilinx – along with our ecosystem partners – creates silicon and IP solutions such as hardware-based video warping acceleration which enables efficient, low latency distortion correction for fisheye lenses, perspective projection, and the simultaneous stitching of multiple video frames.

Radar

slab-divider-red
radar

Next-generation imaging radar sensors target the integration of short/mid/long range performance into a single sensor module to support a variety of ADAS and AD features. To support this radar integration, the XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform is highly scalable and offers functional integration features including sensor fusion and AI perception. Additional advantages of the platform include:

- Digital Signal Processing (DSP) slices which enable complex signal processing of radar data
- Parallel processing within the Programmable Logic that delivers optimal performance and enables the fully independent, yet simultaneous processing pipelines
- Adaptable hardware architecture that enables end product differentiation with complete IP ownership, enabling system designers to stay aligned with evolving ADAS/AD feature requirements
