Hannover, Germany, and Seoul, South Korea, October 19, 2022 – videantis GmbH, supplier of a unified platform for mixed processing of algorithms as numerous as AI (Synthetic Intelligence), multi-modal sensor knowledge processing and fusion, or video coding on a single structure, and ADTechnology Co., Ltd., a world chief in ASIC (Software Particular Built-in Circuit) design companies and turnkey options and distinguished Samsung Foundry’s Design Resolution Accomplice, immediately introduced a collaboration to collectively construct automotive SoCs (System-on-Chip) for superior driver help programs (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) utilizing Samsung Foundry’s superior 5nm course of.
Primarily based on this superior expertise node, ADTechnology and videantis will every contribute their distinctive experience in implementing a scalable and customizable SoC platform concentrating on the total vary of automotive processing necessities. From good edge sensor knowledge processing in decentralized car architectures as much as high-performance compute programs in area and central processing models, this SoC platform will goal ADAS and AD functions as much as SAE L4 (Society of Automotive Engineers, Degree 4).
In distinction to different SoCs addressing this market, the videantis’ v-MP6000UDX unified processing platform renders separate specialised cores for AI, imaginative and prescient, sign processing, graphics, or video coding out of date. This radically cuts down total SoC complexity and on the similar time boosts flexibility to help numerous automotive use circumstances at equally excessive silicon utilization.
The SoC platform, combining videantis’ v-MP6000UDX processing subsystem and state-of-the-art automotive processors licensed from Arm, thus yields simplified, extremely cost-effective single-chip options for ADAS/AD with out the necessity for companion chips.
With the acute effectivity of the videantis platform already confirmed in safety-relevant single-box automotive good cameras in high-volume automotive manufacturing, seamless reuse of present software program functions, improvement instruments, and experience in the direction of this upcoming SoC platform is assured. New full stack improvement advantages from considerably diminished software program improvement complexity because of utilizing a single unified tool-chain for all algorithm varieties.
“We’re very happy to crew up with ADTechnology, one of many world’s main design homes contributing a confirmed experience within the implementation of high-end SoCs in addition to securing premium entry to Samsung Foundry’s quantity manufacturing capacities,” says Dr. Hans-Joachim Stolberg, CEO/CTO and one of many founders of videantis. “I’m satisfied that this collaboration with ADTechnology, Samsung Foundry, and Arm will contribute considerably to our future enterprise.”
“I’m very honored to announce this necessary collaboration work with videantis,” says JK Park, CEO of ADTechnology. “It’s our responsibility to make our clients profitable. Primarily based on 20 years of engineering expertise together with 500 workers, along with videantis we’ll serve international automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers to safe dependable mass manufacturing. With this monumental program, we can even broaden the collaboration with our companions Samsung Foundry and Arm.”
videantis and ADTechnology, supported by Arm and Samsung Foundry, are working carefully with main automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers to develop the very best fit-for-purpose, confirmed SoC platforms for his or her subsequent technology car architectures, enabling fast customization for a variety of automotive units.
“This undertaking is a profitable instance of the increasing Samsung Foundry ecosystem,” says Moonsoo Kang, govt vp and head of Enterprise Improvement crew, Samsung Electronics. “By way of shut collaboration with ADTechnology, our Design Resolution Accomplice, we’ll assist numerous clients launch aggressive merchandise utilizing our 5nm course of expertise.”
“The way forward for autonomous car functions depends on gaining access to the correct computing expertise for the correct software,” mentioned Dennis Laudick, VP of go-to-market, Automotive Line of Enterprise, Arm. “We’re happy that videantis have licensed our IP to supply the correct stability of efficiency, effectivity and modern security, and we sit up for the computing improvements to return in autonomous autos in consequence.”
First merchandise ensuing out of this collaboration are concentrating on autos with Begin of Manufacturing (SOP) 2025 and onwards.
