Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC

Share this on social media:

Xilinx has announced it has taped out an all-programmable multi-processor SoC (MPSoC) using TSMC’s 16FF+ process, targeting embedded vision, including ADAS and autonomous vehicles, industrial internet of things (I-IoT), and 5G wireless systems.

The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC combines seven user programmable processors including a quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 application processing unit, a dual-core 32-bit Arm Cortex-R5 real time processing unit, and an Arm Mali-400 graphics processing unit.

The SoC is tailored for next-generation embedded vision systems, including industrial machine vision, surveillance, and automotive ADAS systems. For ADAS, the Zynq MPSoC tightly couples highly parallelised hardware image processing and analytics acceleration with software-based algorithm configuration and control. With the addition of expanded memory with UltraRAM for video buffering, throughput is maximised and latency is reduced, a critical attribute for ADAS.

The Zynq MPSoC was designed with automotive ISO-26262 functional safety requirements in mind, while still offering a scalable and highly customisable programmable platform that will future-proof customer designs in the quickly changing ADAS space.
