NXP S32N family of vehicle super-integration processors provide scalable combinations of safe, real-time and applications processing to address a wide range of automakers’ central compute needs. Processors can help realize the new use cases and benefits of software-defined vehicles, efficiently create and monetize vehicle data insights and streamline the deployment of vehicle functions and services over a vehicle’s lifetime. Product family provides flexibility for automakers to evolve their vehicle electrical/electronic (E/E) architectures and centralize cross-vehicle functions previously implemented as individual hardware boxes called electronic control units (ECUs) into a central compute ECU. A central compute ECU can be a central vehicle controller focused on real-time applications or a central vehicle computer that also provides applications processing. Devices safely ‘super-integrate’ dozens of cross-vehicle functions with mixed-criticality using hardware isolation and virtualization technologies that ensure freedom from interference between functions. Supported by complementary system components, software tools and pre-integrated software, devcies are designed to accelerate software-defined vehicle (SDV) development and reduce vehicle cost and complexity.
