MicroSys Electronics announces a new evaluation kit for its myriad System-on-Modules based on the NXP Semiconductors S32G processor family. Deployed in-vehicle networks as headless controllers, these highly integrated and performance-scalable processors support ADAS and other functions for increasingly autonomous vehicles. Developers can use the new miriac evaluation platform, which is designed as a modular single board computer (SBC), to test the performance balancing of their applications and to connect their CAN-, LIN-, FlexRay- and 100BASE-T1-based peripherals via automotive connectors. The evaluation kit includes NXP S32G274A and/or new NXP S32G399A based myriad System-on-Modules, a carrier board in the shape of a dedicated modular SBC, as well as the appropriate power supply, cable sets, and a pre-installed Linux image.
Developers of mixed-critical safety applications benefit from up to eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores and four Arm Cortex-M7 dual-core lockstep pairs. This is sufficient to process LiDAR and video data alongside functionally safe vehicle control. When extended with one or two Hailo-8 AI processor modules, the evaluation kit provides numerous pre-trained computer vision models for situational awareness. OEMs using such application ready System-on-Module based platforms – for which MicroSys also develops certification-ready system designs – gain access to rapid prototyping, advanced connectivity for their specific use cases, comprehensive software support, and documentation required for safety certification up to ASIL D. Target markets are real-time connected and increasingly autonomous vehicles, all types of mobile machines, as well as automotive test and measurement equipment.
