Expanding the Role of FPGAs

The increasingly varied nature of data tied to safety systems and connected cars and trucks is altering electronic architectures, putting more emphasis on adaptability during design phases and after new vehicles enter the field. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) are increasingly seeing use in production vehicles, with expectations that usage could grow as artificial intelligence (AI) and over-the-air updating become more commonplace.

The building blocks of autonomous tech

Mimicking the many things humans do while driving requires a complex blend of technologies. An array of several sensors per vehicle is needed to monitor a 360° field of view around the car. Fast networks that send data to the electronic controls are required to analyze inputs and make decisions about steering, braking and speed.
