The new i.MX 8XLite processor from NXP is designed for secure V2X and industrial IoT applications. The SoC features the manufacturer's integrated EdgeLock security technology and is designed to meet the requirements of the US government's FIPS 140-3 security standard for cryptographic modules used in various application areas, such as V2X and critical infrastructure. At the same time, it can process highly complex cryptographic and telematics data.
The processor allows car manufacturers to extend the benefits of V2X to entry-level vehicles. It supports fleet management for automated vehicles and reduces operating costs through advanced traffic monitoring, improved traffic flow and optimised route planning. Industrial IoT developers can use the SoC in secure wireless, Ethernet and control area networking (CAN) applications such as industrial vehicle management, building control and security systems, electric vehicle charging stations and access control systems.
The i.MX 8XLite SoC is part of NXP's i.MX 8 processor family and features a V2X accelerator that can be used as part of NXP's RoadLink V2X solution or as a standalone accelerator. Its vehicle-to-infrastructure capabilities help vehicles communicate with roads, bridges and roadside devices to obtain information about road conditions. The car-to-car communication features enable vehicles to communicate with each other via wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11p, 5G and cellular, creating a network of similarly equipped vehicles to “see” further ahead.
