Cooperative Research Projects

Important Active Projects of Common European Interest


NXP Austria focuses on development and first industrial deployment of a highly secure post quantum processing and communication system, including localization features. A second focus area addresses reliable, safe and secure battery management systems for green mobility.

"SEAMAL IPCEI" Securely Applied Machine Learning

In IPCEI ME, the predecessor project to IPCEI ME/CT, NXP-AT is focusing on hardware-based solutions for secure and reliable implementations of energy-efficient chip platforms in smart access applications. The project supports the further expansion of the R&D competence center in Gratkorn and enables a stronger focus on the topic of security in the European IPCEI consortium.
