Mouser to ship NXP’s S32R274 microcontroller for radar
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the S32R274 radar microcontroller from NXP Semiconductors. Engineered to meet the high-performance computation demands required by modern beam-forming and fast chirp-modulation radar systems, the S32R274 combines signal-processing acceleration with a multi-core architecture to provide up to four times the power performance in industrial and automotive applications, compared to previous generations of products.
The NXP S32R274 radar microcontroller can be used for general software tasks and car bus interfacing. Combined with radio frequency (RF) front-end technologies (RFCMOS or BiCMOS), the S32R274 provides designers a scalable device that addresses ultra-short-range, short-range, mid-range and long-range radar systems.
The microcontroller offers four Power Architecture cores — including an e200Z4 32-bit CPU for its safety core, and e200Z7 32-bit CPUs for its dual computation cores — to provide power performance, integration, safety, and reliability, says Mouser. Other features include 2Mbytes of flash with ECC, 1.5Mbytes of SRAM with ECC, and a Signal Processing Toolbox (SPT) for radar signal processing acceleration. For memory protection, the S32R274 provides 24 entries for each core memory protection unit, a data and instruction bus system memory protection unit, and register protection.
Security features of the S32R274 include a cryptographic security engine for advanced security management, a password and device security module that supports censorship and life-cycle management, and a diary control for tamper detection.
Support for ISO 26262 SEooC up to ASIL-D classification and a rating for AEC-Q100 Grade 1, makes the S32R274 particularly well suited to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The S32R274 is supported by the S32R274RRUEVB evaluation board, also available from Mouser. The board offers a variety of interfaces, including RS232/SCI, FlexRAY, LINFlexD, Ethernet, and two CAN interfaces.
