Evaluate highly integrated S0Ms for industrial vehicle control on SBC

Update: April 14, 2023

MicroSys Electronics has released a new evaluation kit for its miriac SoMs based on NXP Semiconductors S32G processor family. Sited in vehicle networks as headless controllers, these highly integrated and performance-scalable processors support ADAS and other functions for evermore autonomous vehicles. Developers can employ the new miriac evaluation platform, developed as a modular SBC, to test their applications’ performance balancing and connect their CAN, LIN, FlexRay and 100BASE-T1-based peripherals through automotive connectors. The evaluation kit comprises NXP S32G274A and/or new NXP S32G399A based miriac SoMs, a carrier board in the shape of a dedicated modular SBC, and the relevant power supply, cable sets and a pre-installed Linux image.

Developers of mixed-critical safety applications gain from up to eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores and four Arm Cortex-M7 dual-core lockstep pairs. This is adequate to process LiDAR and video data together with functionally safe vehicle control. When expanded with one or two Hailo-8 AI processor modules, the evaluation kit also offers multiple pre-trained computer vision models for situational awareness. OEMs utilising such application-ready SoM-based platforms – for which the company also develops certification-ready system designs – gain access to rapid prototyping, advanced connectivity for their specific use cases, comprehensive software support, and documentation needed for safety certification up to ASIL D. Target markets are real-time connected and increasingly autonomous vehicles, all types of mobile machines, and automotive test and measurement equipment.
