OKI IDS and Avnet have jointly announced a new board for developing ADAS (automated driver assist systems) and advanced SAE Level 4/5 autonomous driving systems based on two Xilinx UltraScale+ MPSoCs.
Avnet plans to start distributing the board in Japan in February, 2018 and will then expand into other parts of Asia. The A4-sized board interfaces to as many as twelve sensors including cameras and other types of imagers. The board operates on 12V and, according to the announcement, consumes about 20% of the power compared to similar hardware based on GPUs because it employs the Xilinx UltraScale+ MPSoCs as its foundation.
Want to see this board in person? You can, at the Xilinx booth at Automotive World 2018 being held at Tokyo Big Site from January 17th to 19th. (Hall East 6, 54-47)
