Development platform for safe automotive high-performance computing
Embedded NXP Layerscape processor delivers 2x increase in processing performance over previous platform to meet new vehicle architecture demands.

“The evolution of vehicle architectures towards domain and zonal architectures is being driven by the need to address more complex requirements around user defined vehicles,” said Arnaud Van Den Bossche, Director, Global Product Marketing for eCockpit and ADAS, NXP Automotive Processing. “Zonal architectures will deliver a server-style approach to automotive high-performance compute. NXP BlueBox 3.0 delivers the design foundation to innovate with these new vehicle networking architectures, helping to enable faster deployments.”

By leveraging NXP’s 16-core Layerscape LX2160A processor, BlueBox 3.0 doubles the processing performance from the previous BlueBox generation. This increased performance, coupled with the expanded I/O interfaces, significantly enhances the intelligence and connectivity targeted for new vehicle architectures. The processing can accommodate radar, vision, and LiDAR signal paths for advanced sensor fusion applications and provides expansion options for AI and ML acceleration with the Kalray Coolidge™ MPPA® (Massively Parallel Processor Array) processors that can be targeted for perception, prediction, pathfinding capabilities and emerging connected services.

The BlueBox 3.0 platform integrates the NXP S32G processor to provide secure vehicle networking and reliable safety processing and checking for system-level ASIL D conformance. NXP has leveraged its safety heritage to pioneer a safe automotive high-performance compute initiative that harnesses the joint efforts of a close-knit partner ecosystem for system designers. BlueBox is the central processing and connectivity hub at the heart of this initiative.

Through their close collaboration NXP and Kalray are delivering a BlueBox 3.0 Software Development Environment (SDE) that integrates the Kalray MPPA® processors. This collaboration enables a common hardware and software platform for safe, reliable and scalable AHPC solutions. In addition to Kalray, BlueBox 3.0 is also backed by a strong eco-system of partners that will accelerate engineers’ ability to ramp up quickly. NXP BlueBox 3.0 partners include: dSPACE, Embotech, Edge Case Research (ECR), eProsima, Green Hills Software (GHS), Intempora, Micron Technology, MicroSys, Real-Time Innovations (RTI), and Teraki, to enable engineers to ramp up quickly .
