EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands,
Current automotive market analysis projects that by 2020, radar technology will be in 50% of all newly produced cars. The safety related benefits of automotive radar, new autonomous vehicle development requirements and emerging safety requirements from organizations such as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), have triggered rapid growth with steep implementation challenges for car makers and other radar focused developers. Adoption of these once premium safety features into mainstream production lines is fueling a need for faster time to market
The NXP radar solution, featuring the S32R27 processor, the TEF810x CMOS transceiver, and the
NXP Automotive Radar Reference Platform
Built in collaboration with Colorado Engineering, the new RDK-S32R274 radar solution is targeted to help developers rapidly prototype high-performance automotive radar using NXP technology. The open and flexible development platform uses a modular architecture and includes a NXP S32R processor and a NXP transceiver along with an innovative radar software development kit. Expansion and antenna modules can be optimized to create a customized development platform suited to specific customer application requirements.
“NXP’s market leading portfolio of radar processors and our end-to-end system development and integration expertise creates a unique solution that accelerates time-to-market for customers,” said Dr. Larry Scally, CEO of
NXP Radar Processors
As a technology and a market leader in radar processing, NXP’s highly integrated radar processors offer customers a scalable family of products including the previously announced S32R27 and S32R37. These devices offer 10x performance/watt improvement over a traditional DSP3 by integrating highly-efficient radar accelerators. This enables longer range, higher resolution and accuracy for safety critical applications such as collision avoidance, lane change assist, autonomous emergency braking.
NXP Automotive-Grade Radar Software
The automotive grade Radar Software Development Kit provides customers an extensive radar algorithm library to quickly build and optimize applications without having to invest resources to hand tune accelerator software. NXP’s extensive ecosystem of compilers, development environments, MCALS, and both free and commercial RTOS support provides customers the tools needed for faster development.
