Automotive qualified MPSoC family enables safety critical ADAS

Xilinx hasannounced availability of the automotive qualified Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family, enabling development of safety critical ADAS and Autonomous Driving Systems.

This latest product family is qualified according to AEC-Q100 test specifications with full ISO 26262 ASIL-C level certification. The product integrates a feature-rich 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 based processing system (PS) and Xilinx programmable logic (PL) UltraScale architecture in a single device. This scalable solution is ideally suited for various automotive customer platforms by delivering the right performance/watt while integrating critical functional safety and security features.

The XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC familyhas been certified to meet ISO 26262 ASIL-C level requirements by Exida, an accredited certification company specializing in automation and automotive system safety and security. The product includes a “safety island” designed for real-time processing functional safety applications that has been certified to meet ISO 26262 ASIL-C level requirements. In addition to the safety island, the programmable logic can be used to create additional safety circuits tailored for specific applications such as monitors, watchdogs or functional redundancy, effectively allowing ASIL decomposition and fault-tolerant architecture designs within a single integrated circuit.

“Building on our success in ADAS, with the new XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family, we are looking forward to enabling the development of next generation autonomous driving systems with the requisite safety and security,” says Willard Tu, sr. director of the Automotive Business Unit at Xilinx. “We are proud to expand our automotive product portfolio, continuing to deliver to our customers, and building on our 12+ years of automotive heritage."
