#1 Automotive Powerhouse

Making driving safer, cleaner, and more enjoyable.

A clear, streamlined approach to building self-driving cars

Our comprehensive automotive portfolio covers the vital functionality of today’s and tomorrow’s cars ─ for the fastest time to market and highest scalability. At NXP, quality is a core element of our business and we EMBRACE stringent quality and functional safety requirements for our automotive solutions.

How do you build a safe, self-driving car, securely connected to a new scheme of smart mobility services? By using a domain-based architecture, which intelligently groups together the functions that let cars sense, think, and act and dash; and eventually to fully replacing the human driver. This helps manage complexity and separate concerns related to security, upgradability, and functional safety. The domain-based architecture is connected through an internal network and secure central gateway that acts as the “glue” to hold everything together, enabling reliable and efficient communication.
