Infineon: striving for autonomous driving development

Infineon is joining the Apollo Program of Baidu. Based on Baidu’s ability in AI and autonomous driving, as well as Infineon’s advantage in automotive electronics hardware platforms, both parties will cooperate in depth to promote rapid development of autonomous driving technology to improve people’s intelligent life. Marking an important fusion of Infineon’s automotive electronics ecosystem and the Apollo automotive ecosystem built by Baidu, the cooperation will create more opportunities for both parties’ partners to join hands to promote the progress of the intelligent automotive industry.

For the Apollo hardware platform, such areas as microcontrollers, radar and lidar sensor chips as well as information security and functional safety are the key products and applications that Infineon is focusing on. Based on the philosophy of combining safety with performance, Infineon offers the AURIX family of scalable 32-bit multicore microcontrollers with real-time capabilities for sensor applications, domain and central gateway controllers, and sensor fusion applications. In addition, the company provides a variety of ICs for radar, lidar, and camera systems in sensor applications. In terms of actuators, Infineon covers all the important features of ADAS and autonomous driving, including transmission, engine, brake, chassis, and steering system.

The AURIX MCU family provides safe and secure computing power of up to 3,600 DMIPS, 16 MB flash memory and 6.5 MB protected SRAM. The innovative multicore safety architecture, which meets highest ISO 26262 standards, can help automotive system manufacturers achieve the ASIL-D safety level. AURIX microcontrollers integrate a programmable hardware security module (HSM) to meet various data security and privacy protection requirements in the Internet of Vehicles environment, which is one of the essential conditions for autonomous driving.

Infineon’s 77 GHz and 24 GHz radar products, which hold a leading position in the global market, can effectively help vehicles to accurately detect distance under harsh weather and road conditions. In 2016, Infineon acquired Innoluce to further strengthen its expertise in lidar as another move in its strategic layout in autonomous driving.
