Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. has collaborated with NVIDIA to support the industry's first Level 5 full-autonomy system, the NVIDIA DRIVE Pegasus platform, as well as NVIDIA DRIVE Xavier for Level 4 driving.

Maxim's Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) solutions and high-performance analog integration, which include next-generation gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializer and deserializer (SerDes) technology, as well as a power system monitoring solution, provide the flexible foundation necessary to meet functional safety requirements for NVIDIA's autonomous driving platform.

To address consumer concerns about driver safety in autonomous vehicles, automakers have increased their focus on safety requirements for ADAS applications. Safety-critical systems, which require redundancy and fault diagnostics, have stringent ASIL requirements. These ADAS systems need interconnect technology that enables the data rich environment for the car of the future. Maxim's ASIL rated voltage/power monitoring and SerDes technology will be used by NVIDIA to achieve the industry's first Level 5 autonomous driving system needed to make self-driving cars a reality.

Maxim's next-generation 6Gbps GMSL SerDes technology supports the high data rate, complex interconnect, and data integrity requirements of future automotive infotainment, ADAS, and autonomous driving. This technology also provides the safety relevant features and flexibility needed to build autonomous driving systems such as the DRIVE Pegasus and DRIVE Xavier platforms. As part of the high-performance analog integrations, Maxim also supplies low IQ automotive-grade power management solutions.
