Partners Pair Vehicle Network Processors With Over-the-Air Software

Airbiquity and NXP Semiconductors partner over the integration of Airbiquity's OTAmatic over-the-air (OTA) software and data management offering with NXP's Vehicle Network Processing (VNP) Evaluation Board (EVB). The integration highlights the interoperability between Airbiquity's cloud-based OTA service delivery capability and NXP's next-generation VNP platform managing multiple ECUs for a variety of software update campaign scenarios and automaker and automotive supplier OTA use cases. Together, the automotive-grade technologies will serve as a primary ECU/OTA gateway for efficient, secure, and highly-scalable multi-ECU software updates and data collection.

 

"The NXP Vehicle Network Processing Evaluation Board unlocks connected vehicle data to enable new revenue streams and reduce costs for automakers," said Brian Carlson, Director of Product Line Management for Automotive Connectivity and Security at NXP.  "Finally, automakers have an automotive-grade platform that brings together applications processing and real-time vehicle network processing with Gigabit Ethernet acceleration to revolutionize gateways for a new era of vehicle services."
