eXinel - Driving Electronics

With 15 years of experience in the development of automotive projects, including 13 years of automated and autonomous driving experience, 16 years of experience in sensor technology and sensor signal processing, eXinel has established itself as a recognized hardware technology partner to the automotive industry. A wide range of components such as backend electronics for LiDAR sensors, ECUs for sensor data fusion, radar sensors, stereo cameras or audio/video components for infotainment of our experts are now successfully in series production at leading OEMs.

 

 

Technologies & Hardware Components

  • Sensor data fusion

    Fusion ECUs link the output data of several sensors, perform object classification and serve to increase detection performance. The fusion of data from cameras, radar and LiDAR sensors produces excellent results in environmental perception.

  • Stereo-Cameras

    Stereo cameras enable functions such as vehicle recognition, collision avoidance, traffic sign recognition, and much more.

  • Radar-Sensors

    Radar sensors are used for functions such as distance control cruise control (ACC Stop & Go), emergency brake assistant and much more.

  • LiDAR-Sensors

    LiDAR sensors are used for environment and object detection and complement cameras and radar sensors.

  • Data transmission

    Technologies such as GMSL, FPD-Link, GVIF, 1000Base-T1, 100BASE-T1, CAN/CAN-FD, FlexRay and LIN are used for data transmission between the vehicle components.

  • Infotainmentsystem

    The infotainment system combines the car radio, navigation system, hands-free system, driver assistance systems and other functions in a central control unit. Infotainment systems can typically be divided into the components head unit, display, control elements and interfaces.

In addition to hardware design, we also work for our customers and partners on requirements management, hardware architecture, verification and documentation. In addition, we design functional safety, create FMEDAs and perform first and second order error analyses as well as fault injection tests as required by ISO 26262.

The most recent example is our cooperation with Visteon Electronics in the development of the DriveCore platform for autonomous driving. Learn more about DriveCore from our customer Visteon Electronics.

As a growing platform provider in the field of autonomous driving, we have to develop new technologies particularly quickly and reliably to series maturity. The technology expertise from eXinel's broad practical experience in the areas of ADAS and autonomous driving convinced us to rely on eXinel's support. The successful collaboration has helped us to reach our ambitious milestones in hardware development in the DriveCore(TM) project. With the company eXinel we have found a very competent partner in the field of hardware design who fulfills our expectations perfectly.

Sensor data fusion

eXinel develops control units for sensor data fusion for various Tier1 and numerous OEMs in Europe and Asia. These form the "brain" of an automated vehicle. Using automotive-specific networks, buses and components such as high-performance SoCs, time-stamped sensor data are combined and evaluated by complex algorithms. The requirements for functional safety according to ISO 26262 play an important role in the development. We have already developed control units according to the criteria of the ASIL-D safety level.

Sensors

eXinel develops sensors such as LiDAR/laser scanners, radar and stereo cameras for various Tier1 and numerous OEMs. Our main focus here is backend electronics. Using powerful processors and digital signal processors, the data from the sensor front end is further processed (partly two-channel) and forwarded to the central control unit for sensor data fusion by means of automotive-specific network and bus interfaces. The requirements for functional safety according to ISO 26262 play an important role in the development.

Infotainment

eXinel develops components in the field of infotainment such as audio/video converter systems with digital video interfaces as well as digital and analog audio interfaces. High-speed SerDes technologies such as Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link (GMSL), Flat panel display link (FPD-Link™), Gigabit Video Interface (GVIF) or High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) are usually used to transmit image and sound information. On the analog side, Delta-sigma ADC and DAC devices are used in the audio sector.
