CEVA introduces new ADAS vision processor design package

CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA) has announced the completion of an ISO 26262 compliant safety design package that helps customers accelerate the certification of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) utilizing the CEVA-XM4 imaging and vision DSP, the company said.

YOGITECH, a leader in providing functional safety solutions, was engaged by CEVA to deliver the Failure Modes Effects and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA) report and advise on achieving ASIL B compliancy. The CEVA-XM4 is already licensed and in design for safety-critical automotive applications and is the only licensable vision processor IP today to support ASIL B safety integrity level (in accordance with ISO 26262).

CEVA will be demonstrating its imaging and vision DSPs in its private meeting suite at CES 2016, January 6-9, 2016. To view the demos or meet with CEVA vision experts, email events@ceva-dsp.com.

The CEVA-XM4 imaging and vision DSP is ideally suited to vision-based ADAS systems, offering exceptional processing power and energy efficiency for system designers to implement even the most complex algorithms for ADAS. The CEVA-XM4 is optimized for vision functions including auto emergency braking (AEB), free-space detection, traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection and other neural network based object detection and recognition applications.

These automotive applications are critical for ADAS and autonomous driving systems and require ISO certification in order to ensure safe and reliable operation. With the release of the safety design package customers can accelerate the ASIL certification process for their CEVA-XM4 based designs, providing further cost efficiencies and lowering risk.

YOGITECH, founded in 2000, is a provider of services and solutions to silicon vendors and system integrators to help them meet their functional safety challenges.

CEVA is a licensor of cellular, multimedia and connectivity technologies to semiconductor companies and OEMs serving the mobile, consumer, automotive and IoT markets.
