At the Freescale Technology Forum Japan, Freescale Semiconductor introduced a family of image cognition processors (ICPs) for the driver assistance market.
At the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Convergence 2012 conference in Detroit, Xilinx, Inc. unveiled its automotive ARM®-processor based Zynq™-7000 All Programmable system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform, which targets next-generation advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Twelve new ARM-based MCUs, PMIC, and safety motor driver
Texas Instruments (TI) announced 12 new Hercules™ TMS570 ARM® Cortex™-R4 safety microcontrollers (MCUs), a complementary TPS65831-Q1 multi-rail safety power management integrated circuit (PMIC), and a DRV3201-Q1 safety motor driver.
Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) from dSPACE (www.dspace.com) can now work together with PreScan, a software program from TASS (www.tass-safe.com) for high-quality sensor and environment simulation. The firms said the tool combination enables developers to optimize the efficiency of intelligent assistance systems at an early stage with precise sensor simulation and flexible, reproducible traffic simulation.
