NXP Demonstrates Complete Autonomous Vehicle Platform Using NXP Silicon at Each ADAS Node

AUSTIN, Texas, May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NXP FTF Technology Conference) – Marking a significant milestone in the fast-approaching self-driving vehicles era, NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NXPI) today demonstrated a comprehensive and highly manufacturable autonomous vehicles platform leveraging NXP’s new BlueBox engine, and deploying NXP silicon and software solutions at each ADAS node. The system demonstration incorporates the BlueBox central computing engine, together with radar, lidar, and vision sensing, as well as an onboard secure V2X system – all of which are powered by NXP silicon currently in volume production or sampling to customers now.

Already in customers’ hands at four of the top five largest carmakers in the world, the BlueBox engine works in NXP’s comprehensive autonomous vehicles platform to provide OEMs and their suppliers with the technology they need to meet the stringent safety, power and processing performance requirements of the global automotive industry, using readily available NXP technology. The free programmability, outstanding performance-per-power ratios, and deep system awareness of NXP’s autonomous vehicles platform makes it an exceptional resource for the near-term creation of radically innovative self-driving cars.

NXP introduces its new autonomous vehicles platform just months after becoming the world’s #1 provider of silicon to the worldwide automotive market. NXP is also a world leader in ADAS processors, having shipped more than 30 million ADAS processors worldwide to date. Eight of the world’s top 10 largest carmakers use ADAS processors from NXP.
