MicroSys Electronics has released two new modules to support the NXP S32G3 vehicle network processors. The new MPX-S32G399A System-on-Module is capable of achieving 2.5 times faster application processing performance and has double the number of cores Arm Cortex-A53 cores compared to its S32G2-based predecessor. The product is suitable for a wide range of markets which includes real-time connected vehicles, mobile machinery and automotive test and measurement equipment. The module can also be used for edge gateways, data loggers and fail-safe PLCs.
According to the company, the NXP S32G-based miriac System-on-Modules offers higher real-time data processing power for mixed-critical safety applications. The new miriac MPX-S32G399A features eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores and four Arm Cortex-M7 dual-core lockstep pairs. The System-on-Modules offers multiple interfaces for connectivity, it offers a native CAN interface along with FlexRay, LIN and Ethernet support including TSN. The module provides instant access to prototyping and extended connectivity for their dedicated use cases as well as comprehensive software support and safety documentation mandatory for certifications.
The MPX-S32G399A extends the application area of the NXP S32G vehicle network processor which is designed for ASIL D safety applications in OEM and Tier-1 automotive applications. The new SoM offers a wide range of communication interfaces including 4x SerDes interfaces configurable as PCIe Gen3 2×1 or 2×2, 3x 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet plus 3x Gigabit Ethernet, 18x CAN FD bus, 2x FlexRay, and 4x LIN. 14x GPIOs, 12x analog inputs (ADC), 4x FlexSPI, 2x UART, 1x USB and 4x I2C. It also supports Aurora and JTAG interfaces. A comprehensive board support package including bootloader configuration and all required Linux drivers rounds off the feature set.
The company says that the miriac MPX-S32G399A System-on-Module is scheduled to become available in bulk by Q1 of 2023.
