Accelerate development of embedded ADAS, infotainment, telematics, and video analytics

D3 Engineering helps your team shorten development time of embedded Autonomous Systems for automotive and transportation applications. We create solutions for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), infotainment, navigation, and active safety.


  • Powerful processors performing multi-sensor fusion and real-time analytics for spatial awareness and navigation.
  • In-platform connectivity (CAN Bus, WiFi, Bluetooth) combined with external connectivity (RTLS, V2X) for situational awareness and decision support.
  • Onboard algorithms and analytics. 

Design Services

We offer a range of product development services. We can deliver full-cycle embedded system development. Or we can help your product development team with specific tasks such as processor selection, system architecture, sensor integration, and algorithm integration and optimization.

DesignCore™ Platforms

Our Starter Kits, Develoment Kits and proven Reference Designs feature industry-leading mobile vision processor and millimeter wave radar sensor technology, along with a real-time embedded software framework. Use them to guide your own development, or work with D3 to customize a DesignCore™ Platform for your system.

DesignCore™ Starter Kits

Our Starter Kits are designed for rapid evaluation of technology on the lab bench. Engineers can quickly evaluate and adopt new technology.

TDA3x Automotive Starter Kit
TI TDA3x Vision Processor

This benchtop Starter Kit lets you evaluate embedded ADAS technology. Based on the Texas Instruments TDA3x advanced vision processor, it enables synchronous acquisition of four FPD-Link III HD data streams (video, radar, lidar, etc.) for real-time vision processing and analytics. Kit purchase includes software distribution and single-use licensing for TI Vision SDK and D3 Engineering advanced vision software framework. Starting at $549 USD.



Radar Starter Kit
High Performance 76-81GHz Radar
TI mmWave Radar

This benchtop Starter Kit allows for fast evaluation of D3 Radar Modules with Texas Instruments mmWave radar technology. Features include small form factor module mounted on a baseboard, easy interface to a PC or embedded platform for test and evaluation, application software, and demonstration programs for common automotive radar applications. 


DesignCore™ Development Kits

Based on the Texas Instruments TDAx line of automotive vision processors, this rugged, compact design supports multiple simultaneous vision sensors, radar sensors, and a host of peripherals including displays, CAN, USB, and Gigabit Ethernet.

All Rugged Vision Platform (RVP) Development Kits accept camera inputs using the FPD-Link III high-bandwidth serial camera interface.

Some RVP models include a Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE) that offloads the vision analytics functionality from the processor while also reducing the power footprint. The Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE) is optimized for vision processing with a 32-bit RISC core for efficient program execution and a vector coprocessor for specialized vision processing.

Internal ISP for Low-Cost ADAS
2GHz or 4GHz FPD-Link III Options
TI TDA3x Vision Processor

The RVP-TDA3x is a multi-camera platform for low-cost Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). It includes the Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE). It is the only processor in the DesignCore™ RVP-series to feature an internal ISP (Image Signal Processor). It does not include an ARM core or a CODEC. The Development Kit supports four camera inputs, but can be customized as required.


8-Channel System for High-End ADAS
TI TDA2x Vision Processor

The RVP-TDA2x is a multi-camera platform for high-end ADAS systems. It includes two ARM A15 application processors, up to four Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE) coprocessors, and a hardware-accelerated H.264 encoder. The Development Kit supports eight camera inputs, but can be customized as required.


Vision for Entry- to Mid-Level Vehicles
2GHz or 4GHz FPD-Link III Options
TI TDA2Eco Vision Processor

The RVP-TDA2Eco is a multi-camera platform for ADAS and infotainment systems that do not require intensive real-time vision processing. It includes a single ARM A15 application processor and a hardware-accelerated H.264 CODEC. The RVP-TDA2Eco does not have the Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE). The Development Kit supports four camera inputs, but can be customized as required.


ADAS Development Kit
Vehicle-Ready Surround View System
TI TDA Vision Processor

The DesignCore™ Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Development Kit incorporates one of the DesignCore™ RVP Development Kits above. In addition, the kit contains up to four rugged camera modules, a display, cables, software, and calibration tools.


DesignCore™ Reference Design


Autonomous Camera Platform

Based on the Texas Instruments TDA3 PoP (package-on-package) processor, this Reference Design combines the computing power of an automotive vision processor with an integrated CMOS image sensor to enable compact, highly-capable autonomous vision. The design supports both onboard analytics and RAW HD video streaming with FPD-Link III. Applications include mirror replacement, front and rear cameras, and adaptive headlights.
