What's new

Improve awareness of the car’s surroundings for a better driving experience with our new low-power, high-performance ADAS SoC, TDA4VM.

Our new TDA4VM SoC includes embedded vision and analytics acceleration along with an advanced internal architecture to enable more efficient deep learning performance. 8MP front camera support enables the car to see farther and clearer in all driving conditions, and support for four to six 3MP cameras enable you to make the vision of autonomous parking a reality.

Functions

Our TDAx family of ADAS SoCs enables a wide range of far-field, near-field and in-cabin sensing functions with a single, unified software development environment. These major functions provide object detection, categorization and tracking for perception applications related to operations outside and inside the equipped vehicle.  

TDA4x ADAS functions

Depending on the Jacinto SoC you select for your design, you can support one to many functions, through fusion, on a single SoC.
