NXP Processors Deliver Performance and Safety for Next-Generation Electric and Autonomous Vehicles


LUDWIGSBURG, Germany, Jun. 18, 2018 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI), the world's largest supplier of automotive semiconductors1, has announced a new family of high-performance safe microprocessors to control vehicle dynamics in next-generation electric and autonomous vehicles. The new NXP S32S microprocessors will manage the systems that accelerate, brake and steer vehicles safely, whether under the direct control of a driver or an autonomous vehicle's control.

Today's car is evolving from a machine that takes simple instructions from a human driver to an increasingly sophisticated computing platform that senses, thinks and acts autonomously. Traditionally, vehicle control systems responded directly to a driver's commands. In autonomous systems by contrast, it is the car that gives those commands and then must execute them flawlessly to guarantee safety in all conditions. This need for safe guaranteed control has driven a rapid growth in demand for high-performance, safe computing solutions to control the "start, stop and steer" functions fundamental to all mobility.

"We see that the shift to next-generation autonomous and electric vehicles is introducing huge challenges to carmakers," said Ian Riches, executive director in the Strategy Analytics Global Automotive Practice. "Not least of these is the ability to get silicon in hand fast enough and with enough performance headroom to ease the transitions to autonomous and advanced HEV/EV. A car can be extremely intelligent, but if it can't act safely on a decision, you don't have a reliable autonomous system at all."
