Journey 2.0 processor was successfully released at the beginning of this year, using TSMC 28nmHPThe C+ process, based on the BPU 2.0 architecture independently developed by Horizon, integrates two Cortex-A53 cores. The typical power consumption of 2W can provide 4TOPS performance, which is more than 10 times that of the same level GPU.
In addition to its powerful performance, the Journey 2.0 processor delivers high-precision, low-latency, perceptual output with typical target recognition accuracy of over 99% and latency of no more than 100 milliseconds. In terms of identifying items, the second generation of the journey has been able to identify more than 60 categories of targets, and the number of single-frame target recognition is more than 2000.
Journey 2.0 processor can efficiently and flexibly implement multi-class AI task processing, real-time detection and accurate recognition of multiple types of targets, and can fully meet the needs of intelligent driving scenarios such as autopilot visual perception, visual mapping positioning, visual ADAS, and voice. The functional requirements of intelligent human-computer interaction such as recognition, eye tracking, gesture recognition, etc. fully reflect the powerful flexibility of the BPU architecture and fully intelligentize the car.
In addition, the Journey 2.0 processor was designed in strict accordance with the vehicle-level reliability requirements at the beginning of development.Successfully passed the AEC-Q100 certification of automotive electronic reliability standard, becoming the first car-level AI chip in China..
Based on the Journey 2.0 processor, Horizon also introduced a new generation of Matrix 2.0 autopilot computing platform that delivers up to 16x power while reducing power consumption by up to 2/3, while supporting up to 8 megapixel video input. Pedestrian detection distance is up to 100 meters, and meets the sensing computing needs of auto-driving fleets and unmanned low-speed cars in multiple countries and different scenarios. It is expected to be listed next year.
Horizon also introduced the Journey 3.0, a third-generation journey processor based on the BPU 3.0 architecture, designed for autonomous driving and domain controllers, also meeting AEC-Q100 and ISO 26262 vehicle-level standards.It is expected that the Matrix 3.0 autopilot computing platform released next year will also use the third-generation processor of the journey, and the computing power will be increased to 192TOPS. It can support the system application scenarios of ASIL D.force.
According to the Horizon, the second generation chip development kit is fully ready to support customers directly in product design. After the success of the chip, the horizon has been pre-installed in five countries in the direction of high-level automatic driving, assisted driving (ADAS), multi-mode interaction, etc., and is expected to obtain double-digit pre-loading in the first half of next year. The model is fixed.
It is expected that the journey chip will have a million-level preloading capacity within two years, and it is expected to complete the goal of tens of millions in five years.
