Indie Semiconductor computer vision processor boosts automotive ADAS
Indie Semiconductor has expanded its automotive camera video processor portfolio with the commercial release of iND87540, a highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC) that enables improved viewing and sensing capability.
ADAS systems demand a ‘distributed intelligence’ architectural approach to vision sensing, and high levels of integration coupled with low power consumption to meet the needs of mass market deployments.
Integrating real-time, on-chip image signal processing (ISP), digital signal processing (DSP) and customised hardware, the iND87540 enables viewing and sensing capabilities within the stringent power, latency and compact form factor needed for scalable vision architectures.
The SoC provides computer vision processing that can run a range of algorithms, enabling ADAS functions including pedestrian detection, object detection, blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts as well as driver and occupant monitoring (DMS/OMS).
Indie complements this SoC hardware with embedded algorithms such as auto calibration (AutoCAL) and dirty lens detection.
The iND87540 has been developed to ISO 26262 ASIL-B requirements, is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified and hosts the AutoSAR software stack. The SoC is available now for vehicle integration and is currently in advanced development with select Tier 1 customers.
