AImotive, Nextchip collaborate to offer solution for autonomous vehicles
Nextchip will integrate AImotive’s aiWare NN hardware accelerator into its Apache5 imaging edge processor SoC to help automakers and tier-1 suppliers develop L2 to L4 solutions
AImotive and Nextchip have joined forces to develop solutions for autonomous vehicles, the two companies said in a press release last week. As part of the collaboration, Nextchip has licensed AImotive’s aiWare neural network (NN) hardware accelerator IP (intellectual property). The company will integrate aiWare into its next-generation Apache5 imaging edge processor (IEP) system-on-chip (SOC) to help automakers and tier1 suppliers develop L2 to L4 solutions. Nextchip aims to start delivering sample of the Apache5 IEP SOC to its key customers in fourth quarters of 2020.
