Xilinx Inc.’s Zynq 7000 programmable system-on-chips (SoCs) have been selected by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore to fuel its intelligent transport systems.
The Zynq series of chips will be used by the Singapore transportation body to keep its roads and tunnel systems safe, to maximize road network efficiency and to monitor and manage traffic flow, Xilinx says. Singapore’s land transportation infrastructure spans 164 kilometers of expressways and tunnels throughout the country.
Xilinx says the Zynq 7000 series is in full production at several OEM automakers for use in advanced driver assistance systems . The 28nm programmable SOC will help Singapore’s LTA to “fully deploy smarter future urban mobility,” according to Nick DiFiore, director of automotive at Xilinx, in a statement.
Grace Ong, director of transportation technology at the Singapore LTA, says in the same statement that Xilinx’s SoCs “will allow Singapore to continue harnessing technologies” that are secure, reliable and of necessary quality for use by the transportation authority.
