NXP Semiconductors and Green Hills Software have announced a strategic partnership focused on production-grade ADAS and autonomous driving applications.
The partnership, and the addition of Green Hills’ INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS), expands the growing ecosystem surrounding NXP’s S32 portfolio for ADAS and central compute systems. Together, the companies aim to deliver high-volume, production-grade electronic control units (ECUs) that foster the development and testing of life-critical autonomous applications.
NXP offers its S32 family for safe and reliable autonomous driving, which includes NXP’s scalable portfolio of functional safety products for ADAS. The S32 family is designed to address the performance, safety and near-term commercial needs of Levels 2 and 3 driving, while providing an eye to longer-term release in Level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles.
Green Hills brings its INTEGRITY RTOS technology as the centerpiece of its software platform for safe autonomous driving. The company also provides its MULTI IDE tools suite and C/C++ run time libraries that are pre-qualified to ASIL D and SIL 4 to support customers’ critical application development.
The demonstration of the NXP and Green Hills collaboration shows how life-critical path planning and vehicle control software can run in safe and secure INTEGRITY RTOS partitions on the NXP BlueBox embedded autonomous driving platform.
