Evaluation kit for NXP S32G -based SoMs supports industrial vehicle control

To evaluate integrated system on modules (SoMs) for industrial vehicle control on application-ready single board computers (SBCs) MicroSys Electronics has introduced an evaluation kit for its miriac SoM based on NXP Semiconductors’ S32G processor family. 

The processors are deployed in vehicle networks to support ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) and other functions for increasingly autonomous vehicles. Developers can use the miriac evaluation platform which is designed as a modular SBC, to test the performance balancing of an application and to connect CAN-, LIN-, FlexRay- and 100BASE-T1-based peripherals via automotive connectors. The evaluation kit includes NXP S32G274A and/or new NXP S32G399A-based miriac SoM, 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.

The evaluation kit can be used in the development of mixed-critical safety applications, using 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, advised MicroSys Electronics. 

When extended with one or two Hailo-8 AI processor modules, the evaluation kit also provides numerous pre-trained computer vision models for situational awareness. OEMs using application-ready SoM-based platforms gain access to rapid prototyping, advanced connectivity for 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, mobile machines as well as automotive test and measurement equipment.

The miriac SBC-S32G399A-based evaluation kit is available now. 

MicroSys Electronics has been designing and developing embedded system solutions since 1975. It is an NXP Gold Partner and widely integrates NXP’s S32 automotive, layerscape and QorIQ processor technology. The company has a broad portfolio ranging from application-ready SoMs and customer-specific carrier board designs to fully integrated systems for railway technology, aviation, mobile machinery, manufacturing robots, control systems and drive systems. Further application areas can be found in medical technology and in critical infrastructures, like the nuclear sector or the process industry, said MicroSys.
