FPGA-Based Modular Design
FPGA stands for Field-Programmable Gate Array integrated hardware circuits that a user can program to carry out one or more logical operations. FPGAs contain an array of programmable logic blocks, such as embedded memory, digital-signal-processing (DSP) blocks, and high-speed transceivers. Nowadays, modern Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and System-on-a-Chip (SoCs) devices with integrated FPGA-programmable logic not only offer superior flexibility, but also meet performance requirements of modern automotive electronic designs for Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD).
FPGA technology enables fast design cycles, integration and data processing of emerging automotive sensors, while facilitating many applications that cannot be supported by software and off-the-shelf ASSP and ASIC chips. These are the main reasons why our logiRECORDER enables central timestamping and precise data manipulation out of reach of PC based data loggers.
FPGAs enable us to quickly design I/O modules that connect automotive sensors and ECUs without any intermediators and exchange original data with no format conversions. Currently we offer more than 20 exchangeable and different I/O modules that support numerous test and validation configurations.
Xylon is fully in charge of designing and manufacturing of the logiRECORDER and its vital hardware and software parts, and has the means to adjust the system to suit customers’ requirements. In situations of any missing logging and HIL simulation features, you can reach out to us and ask for quick hardware developments and necessary software adjustments.
