Multi-Camera Multi-Feature Driver Assistance Platform

The Zynq®-7000 SoC integrates the sensing domain, environmental characterization and decision-making features necessary in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems into a single monolithic device – drastically reducing system BOM cost and board complexity, lowering system power, and boosting overall system performance compared to traditional multi-chip solutions.

  • Breakthrough of embedded processing and programmable logic on a single chip allows for flexible system partitioning
  • Allows for “right-sizing” of hardware platforms in terms of cost and achieving a mix of features on a single scalable platform
  • Flexibility to support continous improvement and retirement of video analytic algorithms up through production
  • Eliminate chip-to-chip data bandwidth issues that plague multi-chip ADAS solutions
  • Reduction of development time with ADAS-specific development kits that include IP cores, software and reference designs



Xilinx Smarter Solutions include the FPGAs and SoCs in addition to a suite of SmartCORE and LogiCORE IP that can be customized to optimally address your unique market requirements. Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite with its tightly integrated development tool flow using OpenCV libraries, Vivado High-Level Synthesis, and IP Integrator provide a faster, more flexible means to go to market with greatest differentiation, lower risk and cost of ownership than alternative ASIC and ASSP based solutions.

Low Velocity Feature Configuration

High Velocity Feature Configuration

The system level block diagrams above demonstrate how Xilinx SmartCORE™, LogiCORE™ and Alliance Program Member IP can be integrated and scaled to meet the needs of multi-camera multi-feature driver assistance systems. The advantage of partial dynamic reconfiguration allows for the swapping out of IP in the programmable logic and maximizing the number of features while staying in the smallest possible device.  The Low  Velocity Feature Configuration utilizes IP and software for Rear View Camera, Surround View, and Pedestrian Detection, while the High Velocity Feature Configuration is set-up for Rear-Looking Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Detection processing.
