An Industry in Transition
The automotive industry is transitioning from mechanical systems comprised of many small controllers to complex electronic computing systems. The systems at the heart of these next-generation automobiles can have over 100 million lines of code – 10 times more than the most advanced flight jets.
This transition is accelerating, with more innovation in the past decade than we saw in the previous 50 years combined. This innovation is making cars more connected and more autonomous. It is also making them safer, with the majority of cars entering the road today equipped with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems).
MIPS is playing a major role in the automotive industry transition, enabling systems as they move from 8-bit controllers to centralized 64-bit compute machines. MIPS-based solutions today are prolific across ADAS, automotive connectivity, microcontrollers (MCUs) for power-train applications, and other in-vehicle systems. Our new eVocore RISC-V CPUs provide the high performance needed for these systems, with coherent multi-threaded, multi-core, multi-cluster scalability. In addition, we provide robust safety capabilities for ISO 26262 ASIL-B(D) and ASIL-D systems, taking advantage of ‘Safety Element out-of-Context (SEooC)’ that reduces time to market and can provide true redundancy.
