Confirming a leadership position in the automotive market, today Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) announces that more than 15 million of TI's advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) System-on-Chip (SoC) devices are on the road. TI's open and flexible solutions are in series production in over 25 OEMs and over 100 car models, and are designed to help reduce the number of road collisions and enable more autonomous driving experiences. With common hardware and software architecture across camera based front (mono and stereo), rear, surround view and night vision applications, as well as mid- and long-range radar and sensor fusion systems, TI's scalable solutions allow for reuse and reduced time and cost to market. Leveraging more than 30 years in signal processing, safety and automotive experience, TI developed the TDAx family of SoC processors to enable customers to further drive innovation and differentiation in ADAS applications.
Market leader, designing award winning innovative ADAS solutions Based on its recent analysis of the ADAS market, Frost & Sullivan recognized TI with the 2014 Product Leadership Award for Semiconductor Solutions for ADAS Industry. TI has developed the automotive System-on-Chip (SoC) family, the TDA2x, incorporating an innovative Vision AccelerationPac with features to help customers create next-generation ADAS solutions. Additionally, Frost & Sullivan also provided best-in-class ranking for TDA2x in management vision alignment, process design and technological sophistication indicating a comprehensive superior solution.
Providing an open, flexible platform enabling innovation and differentiation Unlike other solutions in the market today, the TDA2x offers an open platform enabling customers the flexibility to add their unique value. The TDA2x offers one-architecture for high performance to entry-level solutions in front camera, park assist and radar/fusion applications reducing investment and time to market for the customer. Specifically, TDA2x combines the optimal mix of high performance, vision analytics, video, graphics and general purpose processing cores in a low-power envelope enabling a broad range of ADAS applications scaling from entry to high performance. Additionally, the Vision AccelerationPac delivers a more than 8x compute performance at the same power budget for advanced vision analytics in a more cost-effective footprint.
"TI's rich heritage in automotive ADAS-related application development allows the company to understand and address key goals in the automotive market," said Arunprasad Nandakumar, Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "The TDA2x family is aligned to meet the challenges posted by various ADAS technologies and will be instrumental in enabling customers to achieve their goal of an autonomous vehicle."
ISO 26262 Functional Safety Deliverables The TDA2x is under development respecting the relevant requirements of ISO 26262 functional safety standard. Supporting safety documentation will be available to customers upon device PPAP and release.
