“ART has been successfully working with the NXP i.MX portfolio of applications processors for years to advance our infotainment systems, and we are excited by the i.MX 8QuadMax processor’s ability to fuse multiple automotive domains using a single processor – this reduces weight in the vehicle, which helps meet fuel efficiency standards, while also bringing seamless infotainment capabilities to life,” said Francesco Ortix, Chief Executive Officer, ART. “We have been working with NXP’s silicon early-on since we understood the potential of the i.MX 8QuadMax to forge a clear path of innovation in the connected car market. We are an extremely technology-driven company and NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax is a perfect complement to our future vision for infotainment systems.”
The i.MX 8QuadMax features secure domain partitioning and offers multiple display automotive applications by enabling four high definition screens with independent content or a 4K screen for the savvy motorist seeking to optimize their infotainment experience. Its unique hardware partitioning architecture and capability to run multiple operating systems, without a hypervisor, ensures that other eCockpit subsystems – including safety-critical displays – remain functioning. In addition, the latest i.MX 8 processors incorporate advanced security technologies and standards, including encrypted boot, elliptical curve cryptography, secure key storage, as well as support for AES, SHE and other automotive security standards – all in a single AEC-Q100 Grade 3 qualified device.
The i.MX 8QuadMax integrates two Arm Cortex®-A72 cores, four Cortex-A53 cores, two Cortex-M4F cores, two GC7000XS/VX GPUs and includes a HiFi 4 DSP, LPDDR4 memory support as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet with Audio Video Bridging (AVB) capability. Its GPUs, four Arm cores and IO options in the i.MX 8QuadMax offers the processing and flexibility for artificial intelligence, machine learning, and processing efficiency needed for ART to develop future generations of infotainment systems.
“NXP is committed to providing innovative yet proven technology to OEMs seeking to develop exhilarating connect car experiences with leading-edge infotainment systems that captivate drivers and go well beyond their expectations,” said Ron Martino, vice president and general manager, i.MX applications processors for NXP Semiconductors. “Working with ART validates the power of our i.MX 8QuadMax and its ability to exceed the demanding market requirements for secure, connected multisensory experiences – all delivered in a robust infotainment system, for the supercar of future and their drivers.”
