ASIC Design Engineer

To provide the immense amount of processing power needed for automated driving platforms to tackle the latency-critical, and vastly complex task of driving an automobile, while being deployed in a highly constrained embedded automotive environment, we are developing aiWare. aiWare is a dedicated neural network accelerator hardware IP that delivers highly efficient solutions for low-latency sensor fusion based control systems in autonomous vehicles. The design has been optimized to work with several high-resolution sensors in a wide range of hardware platform architectures. Delivering industry-leading performance and showcasing unprecedented compute efficiency for a wide range of NN workloads, aiWare is the perfect choice for the most demanding, embedded inference applications. Our hardware IP is specifically designed for automotive use, with functional safety principles applied in all stages of the development process, from setting up the system requirements all the way to preparing physical implementation with our integrator partners.
