Dream Chip Technologies has demonstrated an automotive ADAS SoC development platform at Mobile World Congress. This reference platform was created as part of the European Commission/ENIAC THINGS2DO automotive advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) reference development platform programme. Its development schedule and functional safety capabilities were accelerated by DCT’s use of Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP with the Arteris FlexNoC Resilience Package.

DCT has designed a large number of complex SoC and was selected as the design service lead for the ADAS MPSoC European THINGS2DO project. The objective of the project is to create a camera-based ADAS reference platform that benefits automotive Tier 1 companies. Two tapeouts were scheduled and executed in Q3/16 and Q1/17, both using the 22nm FDSOI semiconductor process at Globalfoundries in Dresden, Germany.

Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP is the on-chip communications backbone of many application processors, digital baseband modems and ADAS SoCs. The FlexNoC Resilience Package adds data protection features required to obtain higher ISO 26262 automotive safety integrity levels (ASIL) by implementing on-chip error code correction (ECC) protection, hardware duplication and redundancy, unit checking, data monitoring and built in self-test (BIST).
