Platform-centric methodology enables decoupling IP cores for parallel engineering with data flow design, early architecture exploration of data flows to characterize processor performance, and isolation of chip areas for rapid re-engineering of derivatives and updates.
MobilEye Vision Technologies
provides automated driver assistance technologies to the automotive industry, particularly image processing technology for driver safety and collision avoidance—including the enhanced lane-departure warning system
on the new BMW 5 Series just announced.
MobilEye engineers recognized that their next generation ASIC would require a dramatic increase in features and throughput—and consequently—a totally new architecture to support the required processing power for a universal platform for automotive vision and safety applications. They needed a solution that would enable a dramatic increase in capabilities in order to provide the planned automotive safety and convenience features, as shown below.
