Targeting the entry-to-mid-range automobiles, the new family of automotive processors from TI is specifically designed to meet the requirements of leading Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for autonomous and collision-free driving experience. As mentioned, the newly launched system-on-chips (SoCs) enables a broad range of ADAS applications including park-assist, 3D surround view and sensor fusion on a single architecture.
According to the press release, “The TDA2Ex SoC incorporates a heterogeneous, scalable architecture that includes a mix of TI’s fixed and floating-point TMS320C66x digital signal processor (DSP) generation core, ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore and dual-Cortex-M4 processors. The SoC integrates video and graphic accelerators for decoding multiple video streams and enable 3D viewing experience, respectively.”
Adding further, the TDA2Ex ADAS processor is automotive qualified according to the AEC-Q100 standard.
As stated in the release, TI’s TDA2Eco processors are currently available for sampling and intended for high-volume automotive manufacturers.
