ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems)
The advanced system on chip (SoC) integrated circuits (ICs) at the heart of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) receive inputs from a variety of sensors in the vehicle itself (in-vehicle), as well as from other vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle) and transportation infrastructure (vehicle-to-infrastructure). The sensor data comes from technologies such as ultrasonic, camera, (radio detection and ranging), LIDAR (light detection and ranging), GPS and IR (infrared). The need to detect, analyze and recognize every object — fixed and moving — around a vehicle in motion, under all lighting conditions, is paramount, including signs, people, animals, other vehicles, road barriers, and more.
To put it bluntly: in the history of semiconductors, no consumer application has had more of an effect on safety than the automotive ADAS application. A device failure will most probably lead to a destructive outcome. With that as the backdrop, every SoC with every IP (intellectual property) that goes into that SoC has to designed for integrity and reliability. Apart from functionality and performance, this includes power integrity and reliability against thermal, electromigration (EM), electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) — all critical for automotive safety.
Cooler Master provides an integrated liquid cooling solution for ADAS and infotainment system. With multiple pedestals on each side of the cold plate, we make the car computer compact and robust.
Besides liquid cooling solution, Cooler Master also provides two-phase flow solution for ADAS; all solutions passed HALT and compliant with automotive wide temperature range.
