Embedded World, Hall 4 Stand 325 — Green Hills Software, the worldwide leader in embedded safety and security, today announced its support for the new S32G3 vehicle network processor from NXP® Semiconductors, creating an integrated platform for efficiently developing and confidently deploying safe, secure and highly-performant vehicle network and domain controller solutions. This expanded support combines connected car middleware with essential foundational software from Green Hills that includes the safety and security-certified MPU and MCU real-time operating systems (RTOS), secure virtualization and a professional integrated development environment (IDE).
“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Green Hills to extend support for our S32G3 safe and secure high-performance vehicle network processors,” said Ray Cornyn, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Vehicle Control and Networking Solutions at NXP. “The combination of the S32G3 processors with trusted real-time operating systems like INTEGRITY and µ-velOSity provide a foundation for secure deterministic networking, service-oriented applications and ASIL D functional safety to meet system requirements for new vehicle architectures.”
“The combined strengths of NXP’s advanced S32G3 vehicle network processor with our safe and secure RTOSes, development tools and expert services expand our impressive list of successful solutions based on NXP S32 product families,” said Dan Mender, Vice President, Business Development, Green Hills Software. “We are pleased to provide our production-ready SDV safety and security solutions for the powerful S32G3 vehicle network processor.”
Key features of the Green Hills Platform for Secure Gateway for the NXP S32G3 processors include:
- Extensive RTOS solutions for the heterogenous multicores of NXP’s S32G3 – INTEGRITY® RTOS (Arm® Cortex®-A53 core complex), µ-velOSity™ RTOS (Arm® Cortex®-M7 core complex), and INTEGRITY Multivisor® secure virtualization services for Linux Guests
- Safety and security certifications — ISO 26262 ASIL D functional safety and ISO/SAE 21434 automotive cybersecurity
- Integrated Development Environment – ASIL D-certified advanced multicore debugger with intuitive system visualization through the MULTI® IDE with industry-leading Green Hills C/C++ compilers
- High performance, deterministic network processing utilizing the S32G’s Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) with optimized application performance through the Green Hills Compilers and Arm® Neon® vector processing extensions
- Secure cloud connectivity with OTA software updates and real-time ECU diagnostics reports, provided through strategic partners such as Excelfore
- A rich partner ecosystem of secure communication protocols, secure lifecycle management, embedded firewalls, secure networking protocols (TLS, SSH, MACsec, Crypto libs), embedded file systems and data bases, application services and more
S32G3 processors combine hardware security, ASIL D safety, high-performance real-time and application processing, and network acceleration for vehicle computers, service-oriented gateways, domain controllers and safety coprocessors. They provide up to 2.5x more applications processing and Ethernet bandwidth than the S32G2 series’ highest-performance device. Additionally, they offer double the number of isolation domains and include ISO 26262 ASIL D safety and hardware security – features that are critical for ECU consolidation. Network processing speeds get a big boost from the Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) accelerator and Low Latency Communication Engine (LLCE). These substantial performance and isolation enhancements with the same package pinout as the S32G2 series address the needs of more demanding software-defined vehicles.
