Software Focused Range of Automotive IP

The automotive market is undergoing massive change. Increasingly, vehicles are being defined by the electronic systems within them. Vehicle purchasing decisions are made on user experience as much as driving characteristics. The in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI) systems are becoming a multiscreen, multiuser, tablet device. The driving experience is being made safer through further advance driver-assistance (ADAS) features, such as autonomous driving under certain conditions. The ownership and servicing of modern vehicles is increasingly done via over the air updates and enhancements. All of these features and functions are delivered by software, running on increasingly complex compute devices. Arm has been working for many years to meet the current and future needs of these compute devices.

Features and Benefits

Optimized Compute for Different Use Cases

Three new “AE” A-class CPUs have different performance and power optimizations to best serve the wide range of application processor needs, and are all based on the Armv9 ISA. Also includes an R-class CPU for 64-bit real-time processing in both Safety Islands or standalone MCUs.

Vision of the Future

New image signal processor, the Arm Mali-C720AE, enables configurations specifically for both human and compute vision use cases, reducing latency and minimizing SoC power consumption and cost.

Safety and Security

Delivers a rich set of safety mechanisms for partners targeting ASIL B or full ASIL D capabilities, while looking to optimize performance, power, and cost.  

New 2nd Generation of Automotive Enhanced Products Optimized for Specific Software-Defined Vehicle Use Cases

The Arm IP platform for automotive computing delivers unrivaled performance, low power, and flexibility to chip designers worldwide. The AE portfolio includes three Armv9 A-class CPUs, an R-class CPU, and an image signal processing core. Also included is a range of key system IP, for instance, interconnect, GIC, and MMU, for a wide range of SoCs. Together, these products enable partners to develop a new class of devices, ranging from zonal controllers, to vision, IVI and ADAS, to autonomous.
