Prototyping board supports multi-video-stream ADAS development

June 14, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Arccore’s Arctic Fusion prototype board, suitable for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) development combines safety class AURIX and Treerunner processors; you might use the board for testing active safety systems for connected and autonomous vehicles

The Arctic Fusion prototype board has a modular build with a base processor board interfacing the vehicle containing an AURIX multicore processor (safety class). It offers 7 port BroadR-Reach Ethernet switches, 8 CAN channels, 6 LIN channels and 4 FlexRay channels and supports up to 8 digital IN, 8 analog IN, and 4 digital OUT interfaces as well as up to 8 camera input channels.

The expansion board, based on an NXP S32V234 (Treerunner) high capacity processing "number cruncher" processor, is aimed to process camera input and target object acquisition thus suitable for ADAS and functional safety.

The Arctic Fusion prototype was developed in cooperation with a major OEM, to test new technologies and concepts needed for future active safety systems. "Our prototype board Arctic Fusion means a paradigm shift regarding the increasing demands on ECU capacity," said Håkan Berglund, project manager at Arccore. "As we enter the future of automotive with connected and autonomous cars, the requirements on processing power will dramatically increase in the upcoming years. Our board can be extended by an NXP Treerunner processor and is well-equipped for future challenges."
