MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA) today announced the completion of an ISO 26262 compliant safety design package that helps customers accelerate the certification of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) utilizing the CEVA-XM4 imaging and vision DSP. YOGITECH, a leader in providing functional safety solutions, was engaged by CEVA to deliver the Failure Modes Effects and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA) report and advise on achieving ASIL B compliancy. The CEVA-XM4 is already licensed and in design for safety-critical automotive applications and is the only licensable vision processor IP today to support ASIL B safety integrity level (in accordance with ISO 26262).
CEVA will be demonstrating its imaging and vision DSPs in its private meeting suite at CES 2016, January 6-9, 2016. To view the demos or meet with CEVA vision experts, email [email protected].
The CEVA-XM4 imaging and vision DSP is ideally suited to vision-based ADAS systems, offering exceptional processing power and energy efficiency for system designers to implement even the most complex algorithms for ADAS. The CEVA-XM4 is optimized for vision functions including auto emergency braking (AEB), free-space detection, traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection and other neural network based object detection and recognition applications. These automotive applications are critical for ADAS and autonomous driving systems and require ISO certification in order to ensure safe and reliable operation. With the release of the safety design package customers can accelerate the ASIL certification process for their CEVA-XM4 based designs, providing further cost efficiencies and lowering risk.
"The CEVA-XM4 imaging and vision DSP not only presents the automotive sector with the most power-efficient and cost-effective way to implement ADAS vision processing, but also addresses the critical functional safety requirements through our work with YOGITECH," said Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA. "As the only vision processor IP today that can deliver ISO 26262 ASIL B compliance, both our existing and new CEVA-XM4 customers designing safety-critical ADAS systems will benefit from a significant time-to-market advantage."
"ADAS SoC developers take great benefit from the availability of IPs capable to satisfy the stringent ISO 26262 automotive functional safety standard," said Silvano Motto, CEO of YOGITECH. "We are pleased to have advised CEVA through the functional safety analysis process, and in doing so, helping their customers streamline the development of highly-advanced vision-based safety systems that will be mainstream across the entire automotive industry in the coming years."
The CEVA-XM4 safety design package includes:
- Safety Analysis Report
- Safety Manual
- Failure Modes Effects Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA)
- Process Audit Report
- Safety Features Verification Report
- Reference Backend Flow
