Renesas Electronics Corporation has released the R-Car V3U, a best-in-class ASIL D SoC for ADAS and AD systems. Producing a groundbreaking 60 TOPS with low power consumption for deep learning processing and up to 96,000 DMIPS, the solution is created for the performance, safety, and scalability (up and down) needs of ADAS and AD architectures driving next-generation autonomous vehicles.
The new solution is the first SoC employing the R-Car Gen 4 architecture within the company's open and flexible autonomy platform for ADAS and AD. With the launch of the solution, the platform is now prepared to provide complete scalability from entry-level NCAP applications up to highly automated driving systems.
“We are excited to introduce the newest generation of our popular R-Car SoCs for the next generation of ADAS and AD vehicles,” said Naoki Yoshida, vice president, Automotive Digital Products Marketing Division at Renesas. “The R-Car V3U leverages assets developed on previous-generation devices, such as ADAS and Level 2 perception stack with the R-Car V3M and R-Car V3H, along with the Renesas autonomy platform, to offer a smooth migration path to single-chip Level 3 automated driving with short development turnaround and safe production launch.”
