Arbe Robotics selected Synopsys’ IP for its high performance and ASIL D Ready safety features for its new 4D high-resolution imaging radar system-on-chip (SoC).
Precisely, the company selected Synopsys’ DesignWare ARC EM Safety Island, EV6x Embedded Vision Processor with Safety Enhancement Package (SEP), Ethernet Quality-of-Service (QoS) Controller IP, STAR Memory System®, STAR Hierarchical System and STAR ECC Compiler.
The features are well-suited for strict ADAS and autonomous vehicle application requirements. In addition, Synopsys’ automotive-ready DesignWare IP is supported by comprehensive safety documentation, including failure modes, effects, and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) reports that facilitate chip- and system-level ISO 26262 ASIL D and B compliance.
Arbe Robotics’ patented imaging radar is a next-generation sensor specifically designed for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles. The company claims the high-resolution imaging radar can sense the environment at a wide 100-degree field of view in high-resolution at the highest reliability in various weather and environment conditions, including fog, heavy rain, pitch darkness, and air pollution.
It is able to create a detailed image of the road at a range of more than 300 meters (1,000 feet) and capture the size, location, and velocity data of objects surrounding the vehicle to enable safer driving and support level 4 and 5 autonomous operation.
