NXP Launches S32G Vehicle Integration Platform to Help Accelerate Software-Defined Vehicle Development

GoldVIP accelerates S32G silicon evaluation, software development and rapid prototyping for service-oriented gateways, domain controllers and vehicle computers.

What’s new: NXP® Semiconductors has launched the S32G GoldVIP to help address real-time and application development challenges of software-defined vehicles using S32G vehicle network processors. This groundbreaking vehicle integration platform offers multiple value propositions for S32G processor evaluation, software development and rapid prototyping efforts. Users can observe S32G performance out-of-the-box with real-time use cases and resource monitoring. Pre-integration of NXP, open source and third-party software, including secure cloud connectivity and over-the-air (OTA) update services, allows developers to focus on creating new connected vehicle services instead of software infrastructure. Combined with the S32G Reference Design Board (RDB2) or GoldBox Service-oriented Gateway reference design, users can more easily deploy rapid product prototypes for desktop, lab and in-vehicle applications.

Why it matters: The shift in the automotive industry towards software-defined vehicles addressing ECU consolidation, data-driven vehicle services, secure cloud connectivity and service-oriented architecture requires new vehicle software development approaches. Carmakers and Tier-1 suppliers face new challenges involving multi-tenancy, network management, cloud services, functional safety and advanced security technologies. NXP helps address these challenges with GoldVIP’s pre-integrated software, including from partners Airbiquity, Amazon Web Services, Argus Cyber Security and Elektrobit.

More details: GoldVIP’s pre-integration provides a platform that abstracts hardware to enable developers to immediately create new vehicle services. GoldVIP integrates NXP’s S32G Standard and Reference software, along with the Xen Project® Type 1 hypervisor to provide isolated Linux® virtual machines. The vehicle integration platform offers a high degree of flexibility and adaptability being built upon the Linux ecosystem and supports deployment of user space Linux applications onto the platform. It also provides a rapid prototyping environment with Java and Python supported by local and remote cloud graphical user interfaces and secure cloud connectivity.

Partner software integration includes the Airbiquity OTAmatic® client for OTA updates, AWS IoT Greengrass V2 edge runtime for secure cloud services, Elektrobit tresos AUTOSAR® Classic Platform, and Argus Cyber Security Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) for CAN and Ethernet.

Real-time use cases: GoldVIP includes multiple real-time use cases to showcase key S32G value propositions, along with local and cloud-based visualization to monitor key metrics like processor performance, memory usage, networking bandwidth and chip temperature. Key use cases include CAN and Ethernet Gateways with and without network acceleration and intrusion detection, NXP SJA1110 Ethernet switch packet statistics monitoring, vehicle-to-cloud data telemetry and cloud-to-vehicle OTA updates.

Path to the future: GoldVIP can scale with integration of new capabilities to meet emerging market needs and continue to support customers’ software-defined vehicle efforts. NXP has plans to expand GoldVIP with AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform support, machine learning (ML) inferencing with NXP eIQ® Auto Deep Learning tool support and container orchestration to streamline vehicle services deployment. The platform can also extend capabilities with additional partner software integration in future releases.

“The new S32G GoldVIP offers a tremendous level of software integration and insights that can accelerate silicon evaluation and software development efforts by our customers and partners,” said Brian Carlson, Global Marketing Director for Vehicle Control and Networking Solutions at NXP. “GoldVIP raises the bar for silicon software enablement to address the needs of software-defined vehicles and to provide a scalable platform for rapid development of new vehicle services.”

Availability: The S32G GoldVIP is available on NXP.com. For more information, visit NXP.com/GoldVIP.

Integrating multiple functions within a housekeeping MSP430 microcontroller

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Adding a small, low-cost microcontroller (MCU) for simple housekeeping functions can benefit many board designs. This housekeeping (or secondary) MCU is not the main host processor in the system, but it can handle several important system-level functions such as LED control or input/output (I/O) expansion. This article will explain how integrating a multifunction housekeeping MCU in your system can help lower bill-of-materials (BOM) costs, save board space, and best of all simplify your design.

Current Sense Resistor - WFC & WFCP Series

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vishay

If you are working on a telecom, consumer or industrial design, current sense resistors can give you a great way to detect and convert current to voltage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Clinton Stiffler from Vishay about the what, where and how of Vishay’s WFC and WFCP current sense resistors. They investigate how these current sense resistors are constructed, how the flip-chip design of these current sense resistors reduces TCR compared to other chip resistors, and how you can get started using a Vishay current sense resistor in your next design.
