Subaru uses Xilinx chips in central driver assistance system
In its new Levorg SUV model, the Japanese vehicle manufacturer Subaru uses the principle of optical recognition by stereo camera for numerous driver assistance functions. The central control element of this driver assistance system called EyeSight is a multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) from Xilinx.

In any case, the Xilinx chip would also be able to process the additional radar signals, explains Wayne Lyons, Director Automotive at the Californian chip manufacturer. Because of their architecture, which allows for extensive hardware-programmed functions, the components of the Zync UltraScale family could also implement additional features for other customers - as an example, Lyons mentioned additional MIPI switches or splitters for downstream data recorders or additional displays.

Focus on high-bandwidth real-time data processing: Xilinx sweet spots in the automotive market.

The success at Subaru proves Xilinx right with its strategy to serve the automotive market with highly programmable, heterogeneous multiprocessor systems. According to Lyons, the company has already delivered 75 million such chips into ADAS applications. Customers include not only OEMs such as Subaru and Daimler or the not-so-familiar Chinese electric car manufacturer Weltmeister, but also Tier Ones such as Continental, Magna, Veoneer and ZF.
