Nextchip to launch ADAS chip Apache 6 prototype

South Korean chip company Nextchip plans to launch a new advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) chip Apache 6 prototype next year.

 Apache 6 is the successor of Apache 5 and will be built with Samsung's 14-nanometer technology to support Level 3 autonomous driving.

In early December, Nextchip completed the development of the final prototype of its artificial intelligence (AI)-based ADAS chip, the Apache 5.

Apache 5 is an SoC that combines CPU, image signal processor, and ADAS algorithms. It also has a neural processing unit inside that can run CNN algorithms. The chip will also be manufactured using Samsung's foundry's 14-nanometer process node.

Founded in 1997, Nextchip is a company specializing in the design of semiconductors for video security systems. The company's characteristic lies in that its products involve the core semiconductors in the CCTV monitor, DVR, and SoC series product lines, not just semiconductors that produce a certain part of the surveillance system.
