Hailo, the Israeli AI IP developer, is  collaboratiing with Renesas on ADAS chips.

The combination of Hailo-8 processors, designed for Neural Network (NN) acceleration, with the Renesas R-Car V3H & R-Car V4H SoCs, powers ADAS ICs for zonal and centralised vehicular ECUs.

The IPs are scalable for a wide range of ADAS functions from ADAS L2+ up to L4 AD functions requiring very high tera-operations per second (TOPS), while delivering best-in-class TOPS/W.

Key features for Hailo-Renesas ADAS SoCs include:

·         Independent scalability in AI & compute, allowing flexibility and cost-effectiveness for Level 2+ to Level 4 ADAS designs

·         The highest performing solution available today in the automotive market, ranging from 60 TOPS to over 170 TOPS for multi-sensor perception and fusion

·         Best-in-class power efficiency, enabling ECUs to be passively cooled, which reduces the BOM and system cost

·         Functional safety for the ADAS/AD ECU with Renesas R-Car (R-Car V4H is expected to achieve ASIL-B and D metrics for the real-time domain) and Hailo (Hailo-8 supports ASIL B)        

·         An open software ecosystem allowing OEMs/Tier-1s more control & possibility for innovation

A single Hailo-8 delivers unprecedented performance to edge devices.

Delivering up to 26 TOPS at a typical power consumption of 2.5 W, the chip is built with an architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated Deep Learning applications that could previously only run on the cloud. Hailo-8’s advanced structure translates into higher performance, lower power, and minimal latency, enabling enhanced privacy and better reliability for smart devices operating at the edge.
