Korean chip designer Telechips is launching two vision processors for ADAS as part of a push into software defined vehicles.

The Dolphin 5 and N-Dolphin chips were shown at Embedded World earlier this year, providing ADAS Vision processing equipped with neural processing units (NPUs) for prioritizing safety by running novel AI algorithms such as image processing for various in-car camera applications. The N-Dolphin is slated to be ready for mass production in Q3 2023 at Samsung Foundry and is being shown at the IAA Mobility motor show in Munich this week.

Telechips was founded in 1999 and recently moved into the automotive semiconductor market with audio chips and infotainment application processors (AP). It is now diversifying into areas such as ADAS chips with artificial intelligence (AI) technology, autonomous driving, and networking. It is expanding its product portfolio to encompass not only SoCs but also MCUs in the body and chassis domains.

The Dolphin 5 is based on ARM’s Cortex-A76 processor and Ethos-N78 Neural Processing Unit along with a Mali-G78AE graphics processor with functional safety capabilities.

Both systems support the latest Android and Linux-based infotainment releases and integrate continuous cybersecurity management capabilities.

Later this year the company is planning to launch a network gateway processor called Axon and its second generation VCP actuator-integrated multifunction microcontroller.

“The current automotive industry is undergoing rapid transformation driven by SDV, environmental considerations, and autonomous driving. In line with these trends, Telechips is actively researching and developing a product line-up that spans various fields, including infotainment, network gateways, microcontrollers, ADAS, and Autonomous driving (AD). Our goal is to earn the strong trust of our global customers,” said Leanne Lee, Executive Director of Telechips’ Product strategy planning group.
