Tieto and STMicroelectronics Accelerate Development of Automotive Central Control Units for Safer and More Secure Vehicles

Espoo, Finland, and Geneva, Switzerland, December 10, 2019 – Tieto, a leading software and services company and a member of the ST Partner Program, and STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, today announced their collaborative efforts to develop Central Control-Unit (CCU) software to run on STMicroelectronics’ popular Telemaco3P platform.

Accelerating electrification and connectivity requirements of vehicles are pushing for greater and greater processing power and uncompromised cybersecurity. In turn, automakers’ demands for Central Control Units meeting connectivity, data privacy, security, and over-the-air update needs have led ST to develop the Telemaco family of automotive, multi-processor SoCs (systems-on-chips) and its associated Telemaco3P Modular Telematics Platform (MTP), which provides an open development environment for prototyping advanced Smart Driving applications. The secure and safe Telemaco3P automotive SoC is the industry’s first microprocessor to embed an isolated Hardware Security Module for state-of-the-art security. The module provides safety measures for the implementation of ASIL-B-qualified systems.

Tieto’s Software R&D services division and ST are developing vehicle CCU software and next-generation telematics solutions based on the Telemaco3P platform. Tieto aids customers with system integration as well as design and development of a wide range of secure Smart Driving applications. These applications will support high-throughput wireless connectivity, over-the-air firmware upgrades, and car-to-car communication solutions.

With ST, we’ll be able to help automotive OEMs and Tier1 vendors get the very most out of ST’s powerful and secure Telemaco3P platform. Together, we intend to accelerate the development of vehicle central control-unit software as well as enable tremendous new types of value-adding automotive services,” said Viet-Anh Pitaval, Head of Automotive Business Development at Tieto.

Teaming up with software R&D experts like Tieto enables ST to offer even greater support to automotive customers as they develop and deploy new feature-rich solutions and applications for both in-vehicle processing and car connectivity to the cloud, leading to greater safety and convenience on the roads,” said Luca Rodeschini, General Manager Automotive and Discrete Group Strategy and Automotive Processors Division at STMicroelectronics.

The ST Telemaco3P MTP provides positioning hardware with ST’s automotive-grade multi-constellation GNSS Teseo IC and dead-reckoning sensors. It also offers direct connectivity to automotive buses such as CAN-FD, FlexRay, and BroadR-Reach (100Base-T1), as well as to optional modules for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LTE, and V2X communication.

Tieto’s Software R&D services division develops software for leading technology companies in selected industry domains such as Telecom, Automotive, Consumer Electronics and Semiconductors, building next-generation technologies such as 5G, Connected Cars, Smart Devices and Cloud Platforms.

Together, Tieto and ST will demonstrate a smart V2X Pedestrian Crossing Alert application in a private ST suite during CES, the Global Stage for Innovation, in Las Vegas on January 7-10, 2020.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.
