The increasing demand for safety-critical advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for pedestrian detection/avoidance, lane departure warning/correction, traffic sign recognition, surround view, and drowsiness monitoring requires a new class of semiconductor SoCs. Tier 1 and semiconductor suppliers now must develop SoCs that incorporate the latest multimedia standards, run multiple vision base algorithms, and combine image and radar system sensor data. Designers increasingly rely on IP suppliers to help them overcome the challenges of implementing application-specific IP requirements while meeting the robustness, reliability and safety requirements of automotive applications.

Attendees will learn:

  • ADAS SoC design requirements, including ISO 26262 and AEC Q100 standards
  • Latency, power, reliability, and process-related design challenges
  • Using IP to help ensure functional safety, reliability, and quality management
