ON Semi Announces Real-Time CIS Model for Automotive Simulations

BusinessWire: ON Semi announces that it provides its sophisticated real-time image sensor modeling technology to the NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation simulation platform. The open, cloud-based platform performs bit-accurate simulation for large-scale, hardware-in-the-loop testing and validation of autonomous vehicles.

ON Semi’s Image Sensor model receives both scene information and control signals from DRIVE Constellation to calculate and output a real-time image based on the inputs. It then transmits the simulated image back to DRIVE Constellation for processing. The complex sensor model will utilize all critical parameters in the path from converting photons to digital output (e.g. QE, Noise, Gain, ADC, BLC, and more) to provide an accurate output of a real-world image sensor.

ON Semiconductor’s advanced imaging solutions have demonstrated class-leading performance and their innovative Image Sensor model can benefit those engaged in the groundbreaking work to take autonomous driving from concepts under test to mainstream reality,” said Zvi Greenstein, GM at NVIDIA.

  1. I think this is absolutely necessary to fill the gap made by lack of actual good silicon.
