More than 150 million automotive processors from Texas Instruments drive innovation in the automotive market
Texas Instruments announced more than 150 million of its advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and digital cockpit Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) are on the road today. Leveraging 35 years of automotive experience, TI created both the TDA and “Jacinto” families of processors to enable designers to deliver applications that are safer and more connected. TI’s automotive processors deliver what automotive manufacturers need to design the next-generation of vehicles that consumers not only want to drive, but with the features they demand. These needs include new applications at an optimized total cost of ownership and features that are more interactive and responsive than previous vehicles.
TI’s heterogeneous architecture allows for increased concurrencies allowing designers to further extend image, signal and vision processing capabilities. Additionally, TI’s automotive processors provide power efficiency, use general purpose processors and facilitate multi-OS and multi-domain software architecture.
TI’s TDAx driver assistance SoC family offers scalable and open solutions based on a common hardware and software architecture for ADAS applications, including camera-based front (mono/stereo), rear, surround view and night vision systems, and multi-range radar and sensor fusion systems. TI’s TDAx SoCs are differentiated by a heterogeneous architecture which integrates purpose-built hardware accelerators (HWA) such as image signal processors (ISPs), embedded vision engines (EVEs) and digital signal processors (DSPs).
The “Jacinto” family of processors provides support for a variety of automotive digital cockpit applications including infotainment, head unit co-processing for infotainment, informational ADAS, integrated digital cockpit, digital instrument cluster, head-up display and more. Designed for automotive safety and robustness, “Jacinto” heterogeneous architecture includes hardware firewalls, allows separation between High Level OS (HLOS) and safety OS as well as implementation of robust multi-domain software architecture capable to be ASIL-B safety certified. The processors bring unprecedented feature-rich, in-vehicle infotainment, instrument cluster and telematics features to the next generation of automobiles.
