Vehicle networking, gateway and i.MX 8 Series processors from NXP work together to enable enhanced services, convenience and OTA.

NXP Semiconductors is collaborating with the Ford Motor Company to deliver enhanced driver experiences, convenience and services across its global fleet of vehicles, including the 2021 Ford F-150 pickup, Mustang Mach-E and Bronco SUVs. Ford’s new fully networked vehicle architecture implements NXP’s vehicle networking processors and the i.MX 8 Series processors, working together to upgrade vehicles that help improve customer lifestyle and streamline the ownership experience.

NXP’s vehicle network processors provide secure, in-vehicle networking and enable the gateway to rapidly deploy Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates and new services, while processing and sending deep vehicle data to the cloud to drive continual product improvements and support data-driven services like vehicle health management.

The NXP i.MX 8 Series processors help enable Ford SYNC®4 to deliver advanced multimedia user experiences with vivid graphics enabling in-car productitivity, cloud services, enhanced voice recognition, and location-based applications.

“NXP is helping Ford push the boundaries of what we all expect from a car by providing engaging in-car user experiences and over-the-air updates that continuously improve a vehicle beyond the date it drives off the lot,“ said Kurt Sievers, CEO, NXP Semiconductors. “Our S32G2 and i.MX 8 Series processors open the door to the expanded services, new user experiences and convenience that customers desire.”
