The GW5400 is an advanced Camera Video Processor (CVP) System-on-Chip (SoC) designed for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The GW5400 includes a state-of-the-art computer vision processor, GEO’s proprietary 5th-generation eWARP® geometric processor, innovative High Dynamic Range (HDR) Image Signal processor (ISP), and 2D graphics functionality. Designed in a 28nm process to enable small, low power automotive cameras on-the-edge, the GW5400 supports ASIL B and AEC Q100 Grade 2.

The computer vision engine can run a wide range of vision algorithms on the video stream to facilitate applications such as pedestrian detection, object detection, blindspot detection, cross traffic alert, driver attentiveness as well as auto calibration (AutoCAL®) of the smart camera.

The HDR ISP supports the most advanced HDR, and LED Flicker Mitigation (LFM) techniques by pairing with the latest automotive sensors from On Semi, Sony, Omnivision, Samsung, Panasonic, and ST. GW5400’s on-chip combining of up to four exposures drives dynamic range up to 145dB. The Vector Graphics Engine renders high resolution real-time graphics to overlay on the video stream enabling compelling user interfaces.

The GW5400 reduces system component count by requiring no external DDR memory and incorporating dual camera inputs. GW5400 based designs can be rapidly brought to market by leveraging GEO’s SDK and EVK.
