NXP Quadruples Computing Power for Automotive Radar to Enable New Range of Semi-Autonomous Capabilities
NXP » S32R27
NXP Semiconductors announced a new automotive radar microcontroller (MCU), the NXP S32R27, that will deliver the features and performance required for making safe, automated driving a reality. NXP is the leading supplier of radar-based ADAS semiconductor solutions. An estimated 50 percent of all car radar modules shipped in 2016 will utilize NXP radar processing and front-end technology.
The ability of a vehicle to make precise, safety-related decisions depends on its capacity to accurately detect and classify objects. The NXP S32R27 Radar MCU offers a leap in performance of 4 times over the previous MPC577X product. This means higher accuracy and safety for applications such as collision avoidance, lane change assist, autonomous emergency braking, radar cocooning with 360° perception, or adaptive cruise control. In intelligent transport systems, vulnerable road users (VRUs) like pedestrians, motorcycles and bicycles can be detected and tracked much faster.
NXP’s highly integrated radar MCUs and RF front-end technologies (RFCMOS or BiCMOS) offer customers scalable system solutions that address ultra-short range, short-range, mid-range and long-range radar. NXP offers a very broad portfolio of single and multicore processors built on Power Architecture® technology, providing exceptional power performance, integration, safety and reliability.
