January 8, 2019

NXP and Kalray have joined forces in a partnership to co-develop a central computing platform with safety as a foundation. NXP will offer the host processor of the platform, its high-performance S32 processor, with its safety critical ASIL-D and ASIL-B capabilities. This will help the platform tackle the requirements of automotive central computing and will target path planning functions. Kalray will deliver the world-class performance of its MPPA® processors to safely handle the machine learning aspects of perception. 

The first example of this partnersthip will be the integration of Kalray’s MPPA procesors into the NXP BlueBox, an embedded autonomous driving platform. This iteration will address autonomous challenges in power and safety with ARM-based technology and will be designed to support open standards.
