Next-Generation DENSO LiDAR System Is Made Possible By AMD Adaptive Computing Technology

Next-Generation DENSO LiDAR System Is Made Possible By AMD Adaptive Computing Technology:

AMD made the announcement today that its adaptive computing technology would be powering the next-generation LiDAR platform that is being developed by DENSO Corporation, a prominent mobility provider. The new platform will allow an improvement in resolution of over 20X1 with an exceptionally minimal increase in latency, which will result in enhanced accuracy when identifying people, cars, vacant space, and other things. In order to achieve ISO 26262 ASIL-B certification, the DENSO LiDAR platform will make use of the AMD Xilinx Automotive (XA) ZynqTM UltraScale+TM adaptive System-on-Chip (SoC) and the functional safety suite of developer tools offered by the latter. Shipments are expected to begin in 2025.

Denso’s SPAD LiDAR System Is Powered By AMD’s XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC:

Denso’s Single-Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) LiDAR system, which is powered by AMD’s XA Zynq UltraScale+ multi-processor system-on-chip (MPSoC) architecture, is claimed by the processor manufacturer to create the greatest point-cloud density level of any LiDAR system now available on the market. Point-cloud density is related to picture resolution in that it guarantees that essential decision-making elements are recorded by having a greater number of points inside a given region. This number of points is described by the point-cloud density.

In most cases, manufacturers are switching to systems based on SPAD since they allow for greater reductions in the amount of space that are required. DENSO’s LiDAR systems are able to minimize the size of existing LiDAR implementations by using the extremely versatile XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. This makes it possible for many LiDARs to operate in tandem to provide a front view & side views of a vehicle. Because a single device can be used for numerous DENSO LiDAR systems, including those of future generations, this helps drive down costs for the system and makes designs more suitable for the future.

It is possible that the cars now in production only have one LiDAR that looks ahead, while the vehicles of the future generation will have numerous systems, including LiDARs that look forward, to the rear, and to the side. In order to go beyond driver assistance and towards complete autonomy, the extra systems are required. In addition to its usage in automatic driving, DENSO LiDAR has other potential uses, such as the monitoring of infrastructure and the automation of factories.

“We Are Pleased To Deepen Our Relationship With AMD” Said Eiichi Kurokawa:

“We are pleased to deepen our relationship with AMD as we launch our next-generation LiDAR system,” said Eiichi Kurokawa, director of the Sensing System business unit for DENSO Corporation. “Our next-generation LiDAR system is going to revolutionize the industry,” added Kurokawa. “The high-performance, highly scalable, and programmable silicon from AMD provides particular advantages for the exceedingly complicated image processing needs of our LiDAR sensor architecture,” said the company. Our decision to collaborate with AMD was influenced by the adaptability and functionality of the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform, as well as its capacity to satisfy demanding functional safety criteria.

The DENSO SPAD LiDAR Is Capable Producing More Than 3 Million Points Per Second:

The DENSO SPAD LiDAR is capable of producing more than three million points per second at a frame rate of ten per second. The XA Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs that are used in this middle-range LiDAR system are utilized for the system monitor capability, which helps to permit the temperature and the entire system to work appropriately. Because the system converts time to digital rather than analogue to digital, the overall size and cost of the system may be optimised, yet it can still offer high-performance, high-density data. This is made possible by the use of time-to-digital conversion.

DENSO Has Created A LiDAR System:

“DENSO has created a LiDAR system that has an extremely high degree of accuracy. According to Mark Wadlington, senior general manager and vice president of AMD’s Core Markets Group, “As LiDAR continues to advance, there are new technical needs, pushing the need for increases in sensitivity, density, and performance.” “Through the technology developed by AMD known as adaptive computing, we are assisting to allow a decrease in system size & space, while also enhancing resolution for higher accuracy in object identification, all while maintaining extremely low latency.”

AMD In The Automotive Industry:

The need for increased computing, compute acceleration, & graphics technologies is growing as the rate of innovation in the automobile sector continues to quicken its pace. With its extensive product lineup of increased CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and Adaptive SoCs, AMD is now in the driver’s seat at this pivotal juncture. AMD offers automakers with a one-stop shop for silicon & software solutions, allowing them to power in-vehicle entertainment systems, advanced driver assistance systems, autonomous driving, & series connection where functional safety is of the utmost concern.
