Autotalks has licensed and deployed the CEVA-XC communication DSP in its upcoming second-generation Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) chipset, a networking chip for vehicles to connect with other vehicles, infrastructure, and also pedestrians.
V2X it's basically enable self-driving and more of a safety technology to prevent hazards/vehicle accidents and also coordinating with traffic signals to minimize queuing.
Autotalks' second-generation V2X processor supports IEEE802.11p communication, operating on the 5.9GHz band allocated for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications, along with IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac functionality. The CEVA-XC communications processor IP is used to enable Autotalks to implement the PHY layer and specific elements of the MAC layer on the DSP, allowing scalable V2X use cases. The implementation supports concurrent dual-channel operation, either two different IEEE802.11p channels or IEEE802.11p and IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac, as well as optimal IEEE802.11p diversity operation. Autotalks' V2X processor meets SAE2945/1 requirements.
