S32 MCUs and MPUs for automotive and industrial applications provide an architecture that balances performance and power efficiency. They’re designed to address current and future connectivity, security, and safety challenges. As part of the total solution, we provide a complimentary S32 Design Studio, which includes a full automotive-grade SDK with low-level drivers and ecosystem support.

Bringing Future Vehicles to Market Faster


  • 10x the performance of NXP’s previous family of automotive devices
  • Scalability across products based on Arm® Cortex®-A, Cortex-R, and Cortex-M cores with ASIL-D capabilities
  • Common IP set + application-specific IP


  • Maximizes software re-use within the domain and across domains
  • Identical software development environment
  • Common instruction set, memory map, reset, clock, interrupt.

Over-the-Air Updates (OTA)

  • Zero downtime with full rollback options
  • Upgradability for all car domains via secure gateway and common architecture
  • Hardware security engine in all processors offers the building blocks to implement end-to-end security in the entire vehicle architecture.

S32 Automotive Processing Platform

Secure Over-the-Air Updates.

The S32 Platform allows zero-downtime OTA capability to any S32 enabled car domains via a secure gateway and common domain architecture.

Fault Recovery Rollbacks

With the memory flexibility in the S32 Platform, multiple firmware versions can be maintained to allow software rollback to ‘known good’ versions reducing the risk of installation failure.
