Airbiquity announced the expansion of a multi-year technology collaboration with NXP Semiconductors to pre-integrate and demonstrate automotive software updates and data management for intelligent connected vehicles. The latest integration effort between the two companies showcases essential vehicle-wide support for evolving software-defined vehicles using Airbiquity over-the-air (OTA) software update and data management services, a NXP service-oriented gateway serving as the primary ECU, and additional NXP automotive processing platforms serving as secondary domain ECUs.

As the automotive industry continues to evolve the importance of software and data is increasing along with the management challenges for automakers. Addressing these challenges requires a combination of a leading OTA software and data management solution combined with high-performance vehicle network processors optimized to handle high-speed data traffic. Airbiquity and NXP accomplish this by pre-integrating the most recent versions of the Airbiquity OTAmatic software update and data management platform with the NXP S32G2 vehicle network processor platform to provide centralized in-vehicle software and data management orchestration – including support for the Uptane automotive security framework. Additional NXP automotive processing platforms serving as secondary domain ECUs are an i.MX 8QuadMax platform for the head unit, an i.MX 6Quad platform for the instrument cluster, a S32K148 for body control, and a S32S247TV platform for EV/powertrain control.
