Xilinx has made its XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family available to assist in the development of safety-critical advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems. It is said to deliver the right performance/watt while integrating critical functional safety and security features and is aimed at a range of automotive platforms.
The product integrates a feature-rich 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex-R5-based processing system and Xilinx programmable logic UltraScale architecture in a single device.
Additionally, the XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family offers a safety island designed for real-time processing functional safety applications and is certified to meet ISO 26262 ASIL-C level requirements.
The programmable logic can create additional safety circuits tailored for specific applications such as monitors, watchdogs or functional redundancy, allowing automotive safety integrity level decomposition and fault-tolerant architecture designs within an integrated circuit.
