DRA829 Jacinto™ 7 processors, based on the Arm®v8 64-bit architecture, provide advanced system integration to enable lower system costs of applications such as Infotainment, Cluster, Premium Audio, and Gateway . The integrated diagnostics and functional safety features are targeted to ASIL-B/C certification/requirements. The integrated microcontroller (MCU) island eliminates the need for an external system MCU. The device features a Gigabit Ethernet switch and a PCIe hub which enables networking use cases that require heavy data bandwidth. The hardware accelerators allow for vision pre-processing, distance and motion processing with minimal impact on system performance. Up to six Arm® Cortex®-R5F subsystems manage low level, timing critical processing tasks leaving the Arm® Cortex®-A72’s unencumbered for applications. A dual-core cluster configuration of Arm® Cortex®-A72 facilitates multi-OS applications with minimal need for a software hypervisor.
