Xilinx' latest SoC offerings empower technology such as advanced ADAS
Published: 12 November 2019 - Christian Lynn
Xilinx today announced the expansion of its automotive-qualified 16 nanometer (nm) family with two new devices – the Xilinx Automotive (XA) Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 7EV and 11EG. These two new parts deliver strong programmable capacity, performance and I/O capabilities for the augmentation of high-speed, data aggregation, pre-processing, and distribution (DAPD) of data, as well as compute acceleration for L2+ to L4 advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) applications.
With these new additions, Xilinx hopes to enable silicon integration over a variety of industries, meeting the safety, quality and reliability requirements for automotive, with a comprehensive line of products scaling from small devices powering edge sensors to new high-performance devices for centralised domain controllers.
The new XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 7EV and 11EG offer over 650,000 programmable logic cells and nearly 3,000 DSP slices. In addition, the XA 7EV contains a video codec unit for h.264/h.265 encode and decode, while the XA 11EG includes 32 12.5Gb/s transceivers and provides four PCIe Gen3x16 blocks. The addition of these high-performance devices to the XA portfolio enables carmakers, robotaxi developers, and Tier-1 suppliers to perform the DAPD and compute acceleration in a power envelope that allows for scalable production deployments for AD vehicles.
“The new additions to our automotive portfolio expand our offerings to the market,” said Emre Onder, senior vice president, marketing, Xilinx: “Through customer-driven requests, we’ve broadened our XA product family to meet the complex levels of today’s ADAS and autonomous driving systems. With these additions to the Zynq UltraScale+ product line, Xilinx delivers unmatched processing flexibility and scalability vital for today’s rapidly changing requirements. Whether customers are developing for L1 or for L4 systems, we have a solution that meets their needs.”
