NXP’s new S32G3 Series extends the reach of the S32G family to offer broad scalability from vehicle microcontrollers to higher-performance vehicle compute applications with software and pin compatibility.

What’s new: NXP Semiconductors has announced the extension of the S32G
Vehicle Network Processors family with the introduction of the S32G3 Series
with four initial devices. Software and pin-compatible with the popular
S32G2 Series launched into full production in Q2 2021, these new devices
offer up to 2.5x more applications processing performance, on-chip system
memory and networking than the current highest-performance S32G2 Series
device to enable more ECU consolidation and support intelligent
software-defined vehicles. With the addition of the S32G3 Series, the S32G
family now addresses a broader range of vehicle applications from safe
microcontrollers to higher-performance domain controllers, safety
processors, and zonal vehicle compute applications.

Why it matters: ECU consolidation and vehicle architecture evolution to
domain and zonal architectures are emerging rapidly, requiring the
integration of more processing, memory, networking bandwidth and resource
isolation to support software-defined vehicles. These intelligent connected
vehicles demand more advanced ADAS safety and secure real-time and
applications processing to offer new vehicle and data-driven cloud services
that support smart mobility and smart cities.

More details: The S32G3 Series provides up to 2.5x more applications
processing, Ethernet bandwidth on two ports and on-chip system memory than
the current S32G2 Series’ highest-performance device (S32G274A).
Additionally, it doubles the number of isolation domains, which are critical
for future ECU consolidation. The substantial performance enhancements with
the same package pinout meet the needs of more demanding software-defined
vehicles. The EVB3 evaluation board, RDB3 reference design and GoldBox 3
rugged enclosure version, combined with a broad range of enablement software
and the Vehicle Integration Platform (GoldVIP) for rapid connected gateway
development, provide platform solutions to accelerate customer evaluation,
development, proof-of-concept and time-to-market.

“With the industry move to more consolidated, software-defined vehicles,
there is a need for more processing and memory,” says Brian Carlson, Global
Marketing Director for Vehicle Control and Networking Solutions, NXP. “The
new S32G3 Series builds on the success of the S32G2 Series processors,
launched into production in April 2021, by providing a significant
performance boost to extend its range of vehicle applications and meet new
market demands.”

Automotive and Beyond
Diverse applications within automotive and in adjacent transportation and
industrial markets have leveraged the S32G2 Series devices since their mass
market launch, leveraging the combination of safe processing, networking and
security. The S32G3 Series can extend market and application opportunities
in the future with more performance and capabilities, and enable product
upgrades with its software and pin compatibility.

S32G Ecosystem Support
The S32G family of devices is supported by a broad and growing partner
ecosystem offering operating systems, virtualization, execution
environments, applications software, boards, software tools, engineering
services, deep-dive training and cloud services. When combined with NXP’s
enablement tools, NXP’s partners can help accelerate S32G customers’ product

S32G System Solution
NXP helps customers design S32G system solutions with companion products.
The SJA1110 multi-gigabit safe and secure automotive Ethernet switch is
aligned to the latest TSN standards and offers integrated 100BASE-T1 PHYs,
hardware-assisted security and safety capabilities and multi-gigabit
interfaces. To ensure power management architecture and the safety concept
scalability from S32G2 to S32G3, NXP developed the PF53 as a companion chip
of the VR5510. The PF53 is a high-performance 12 A core supply regulator
with adaptive voltage positioning (AVP). NXP also offers a wide range of
in-vehicle network transceivers with CAN high-speed signal integrity and
security innovations. The combination of NXP’s S32G processor, SJA1110
switch and portfolio of transceivers powered by VR5510/PF53 power management
addresses the biggest challenges facing vehicle networking today, including
scalability, safety, security and high-speed traffic engineering.

The initial S32G399A device has been sampled to lead customers with a
production launch targeted for Q1 2023. For more information, visit
