NXP, Kalray defy Nvidia with automotive AI computing platform

January 09, 2019 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
There is movement in the market for computer platforms for autonomous vehicles: Chip manufacturers NXP and Kalray have entered into a partnership to develop such a computer platform. Thus, a new player in this market segment, currently dominated by Nvidia, is appearing on the scene.

NXP and the French processor startup company Kalray announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that they have entered into a strategic partnership to develop a control computer for autonomous vehicles. Kalray is regarded as a pioneer for processors for the application of artificial intelligence and considers itself well prepared for the particularly demanding control tasks that require maximum functional safety.

Machine learning für safety-critical functions? Kalray says yes

Together, the duo wants to combine the scalable, functionally safe NXP product portfolio of silicon for driver assistance systems (ADAS) with Kalray's MPPA processors (Massively Parallel Processor Array). The future platform is considered relevant for industry because it meets the high demands for performance, safety and commercial factors especially for Level 2 and 3 in the short term, while at the same time keeping an eye on future Level 4/5 approvals. The partners have also set themselves the goal of eliminating the safety deficiencies of today's autopilots and autonomous test offerings.
