Xilinx expands automotive-grade programmable SoC portfolio

13 November 2019

Expanding its automotive-grade 16-nanometer (nm) family with two new devices, Xilinx Inc. is growing its portfolio of devices that meet the safety, quality and reliability requirements for automotive products ranging from small devices powering edge sensors to devices for centralized domain controllers.

The new Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 7EV and 11EG enable high-speed, data aggregation, pre-processing and distribution (DAPD) as well as compute acceleration for Level 2 to Level 4 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and self-driving applications.

The two new devices offer more than 650,000 programmable logic cells and nearly 3,000 DSP slices, which is 2.5 times that of the previous device. Additionally, the 7EV contains a video codec unit for h.264/h.265 encode and decode while the 11EG includes 32 12.5 Gb/s transceivers and provides four PCI e Gen 3 x 16 blocks. This enables carmakers, robotaxi developers and Tier-1 suppliers to perform the DAPD and compute acceleration for scalable production deployments of autonomous vehicles.

Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC portfolio meets AEC-Q100 test specifications and integrates both Xilinx programmable logic and a 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 based processing system certified to ASIL-C level in the low power domain.
