Multi-Camera Driver Assistance Platform

Integration of Multiple Cameras in driver assistance (DA) systems is a growing trend in the automotive industry.  Existing multi-chip solutions are not optimal in handling the many feature requirements of multiple cameras due to architectural inflexibility, performance bottlenecks and high power consumption.  The Zynq-7000 SoC integrates the typical sensing, environment characterization and decision-making features necessary in DA systems into a single monolithic device –drastically reducing BOM cost and lowering total system power, while boosting overall system performance compared to traditional multichip solutions.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • 4 megapixel cameras in DA platform supporting 3D surround view functionality at  30fps
  • Highest  system performance with optimal HW/SW partitioning – dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor runs feature application software while programmable logic performs hardware acceleration for computationally-intensive, high-performance functions including: pedestrian detection, collision-avoidance, blind spot detection and rear lane departure warning
  • Highly integrated, feature-rich SoC with dynamic reconfiguration enables lowest cost solution –  reduced chip count vs. ASSP solutions, lower total cost of ownership vs. of ASIC co-processing solutions
  • Greater profits and differentiation through inherent flexibility of programmable fabric and proprietary IP
  • Accelerate design productivity with a tightly integrated development tool flow, SmartCore™ IP including specialized ecosystem IP and software, and operating systems
