Challenge us - our automotive team is looking forward to your development project.
Series development of digital ECU cores
With a team of qualified engineers from the FPGA, software, hardware and test development fields we cover all areas within this phase. Additionally, we can work on testing concepts at an early stage. In all this, we use contemporary and agile development methods and combine them with functional safety requirements.
Pre- and series development of indirect vision (mirror replacement system)
Typically, we are involved in the conceptualization of the CMS core features and the setup of functional prototypes. This is followed by the series development of the CMS image processing with due regard to functional safety. For one, it is important to bear in mind that the system is a safety-relevant part of the vehicle for ensuring indirect sight and thus ISO 26262, among others, needs to be adhered to. Second, such a CMS must meet high specific image quality criteria for latency-optimized presentation on the monitor, but also as a basis for subsequent topics like object detection or other ADAS functionalities.
Pre- and series development of Ethernet-based camera systems
Here we develop either Ethernet-based cameras that have to be integrated into the smallest spaces, or we realize the additional output of compressed image data streams for downstream functionalities within a central control unit. In both cases, established standards in the automotive Ethernet field can be supported, for example SOME/IP. Here we can support our customers in all areas, from optimized smart cameras to flexible system architectures.
Technology development image processing
In the research and predevelopment field, we deal with conceptualization and prototypical implementation of the following topics:
Pre- and series development of FPGA-based embedded solutions
We handle complete FPGA development, from FPGA-centric systems to the simple implementation of hardware accelerators within the FPGA fabric. Series development projects are based not only on Automotive SPICE-compliant VHDL development and thus on the same lifecycle as classic software, but also on safeguards regarding functional safety according to ISO 26262.
Pre- and series development of microcontroller-based embedded solutions
We handle the complete software lifecycle from conception, SW requirements, architecture and design to testing, taking into account market-specific aspects like Automotive SPICE, functional safety (ISO 26262), security, Ethernet, CAN, diagnosis, update, AUTOSAR, etc.
Software development process
We use a generic software development process (Automotive SPICE) that is applied in a custom-tailored manner depending on the project. We place particular value on the use of up-to-date workflows and the adherence to the “zero defects” strategy through quality assurance measures. We apply this to FPGA development in the same way and with similar tools as in classic software development, i.e., independent from the realization, topics like guidelines, coding styles, static code analysis, unit tests and so on are clearly defined.
Quality management according to ISO 9001
Conceptualization and setup of the hardware
Certifications and norms
We work according to norms and guidelines like:
