Renesas Electronics Corporation, a global automotive electronics solution provider, has developed a new video processing circuit block for automotive computing system-on-chips (SoCs), which will realize the autonomous vehicles.
The new video processing circuit block achieves 70ms-low latency vehicle camera video processing and Industry-leading Full-HD 12-channel video processing performance with only 197 mW power consumption.
The automotive computing SoCs are needed to integrate the functionality of in-vehicle infotainment systems and driving safety support systems in autonomous vehicles as to operate both in parallel.
Particularly, driving safety support systems should be able to process video data from vehicle cameras with low latency to alert the driver of appropriate information in a timely manner.
The newly developed video processing circuit block by Renesas handles processing of vehicle camera video with low latency and low power consumption.
Renesas has produced prototypes of the new video processing circuit block using a 16 nanometer (nm) FinFET process.
Renesas announced this technology at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) held in San Francisco from January 31 to February 4, 2016.
