The Cadence® Tensilica® ConnX family of enhanced DSPs establishes a new standard in high-performance, low-power digital signal processing specifically designed for radar, lidar, and communications processing. The ultra-high-performance ConnX B10 and B20 DSPs are optimized for the next-generation sensing applications, such as 4D imaging radar and lidar, as well as 5G infrastructure and endpoints. Both ConnX B10 and B20 DSPs are ISO 26262:2018 ASIL-compliant certified and suitable for use in safety-critical applications such as autonomous driving, advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS), and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications.
