At embedded world 2023, Brian Carlson, Director, Global Product and Solutions Marketing at NXP Semiconductors talks to Electronic Specifier's Editor, Mick Elliott, about software-defined vehicles and the technology behind it at NXP.

NXP accelerates embedded software solutions that make devices smarter, more convenient and safer. NXP is driving innovation to simplify software integration in the automotive industry, reduce complexity, enable reuse and scalability and optimise costs.

Future vehicles will be highly intelligent robotic devices that are enabled by software and underlying hardware – all with a focus on security, connectivity and ecosystem collaboration.

At embedded world, NXP is launching its S32G3 processor for vehicle networking. S32G3 vehicle network processors combine ASIL D safety, hardware security, high-performance real-time and application processing and network acceleration.

“We’re bringing in cloud native technology... that’s what we’re showing here. We can actually deploy and monitor applications or services on the vehicle on this chip. The interesting thing about this device is it has not only real-time processing and application processing, but vehicle networking accelerator,” explains Brian Carlson.

 S32G3 supports the needs of new vehicle architectures: service-oriented gateways, vehicle computers, domain controllers, zonal processors and safety processors.

The S32G3 vehicle network processors are supported by a broad range of software enablement that is comprised of Reference Software, Standard Software and Premium Software, in addition to support from the S32 Design Studio IDE.

The S32G3 series extends the S32G family with pinout and software compatibility with the S32G2 series.

“This fits in the same socket, or pinout, same software, but now I can actually scale from 3K up to 36K, a very large dynamic range of processing, all with the same footprint technologies. They all have the same design, I can plug in, and I can upgrade.

“Scalability is important for different tiers of vehicles as well as the product over time where they might want to increase performance. They can install different versions of that same device with more memory and more cores,” says Carlson.
