EnSilica (Wokingham, UK) has launched a Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) soft IP core for use in situational awareness radar sensors for automotive driver-assist applications. The development of the CFAR IP also followed the guidelines necessary for integration with devices adhering to the ISO 26262 functional safety standard for road vehicles. Features include:
- Hardware accelerated CFAR IP is matched to EnSilica’s pipelined FFT IP core.
- Operates on continuous data at one bin per clock cycle.
- Combination of cores delivers a substantially reduced data set for analysis by the processor.
