Description Governing motion and speed, this domain is what makes an automobile move. Movement is based on inputs from the driver or the driver-substitute and can be modified based on personal preferences and environmental constraints, such as road conditions. The vehicle dynamics portion of this domain is where supporting subsystems, such as suspension and steering, ensure stability and a smooth ride. Our angular sensors include magnetic field sensors, integrated amplifiers and programmable sensors. NXP’s 16- and 32-bit single and dual-core automotive MCUs provide enhanced computing power and specialized peripherals for complex electric motor control functions. Integrated power supply solutions are also important elements of a power steering control unit.

Demo This demo shows an infotainment and ADAS system based on NXP Ethernet components and is divided in three main parts: Infotainment, Network and ADAS. In the infotainment part, a “Head Unit” ECU plays locally an MPEG movie and also streams it over Ethernet to the second “Rear Seat Unit” ECU. Both ECUs also execute in the backroad the NXP AVB SW stack. This enables the two ECUs to be perfectly synchronized with each other. Therefore the two ECUs can playback the very same video (and audio) frame at the same time on their local displays. In the network part the new Automotive Ethernet Switch (SJA1105EL) and PHYs (TJA1100HN) implement the Ethernet connectivity of the system. The switch executes the AVB “ gPTP ” synchronization SW that enables the infotainment application described above to operate. In the ADAS part a surround view camera captures a video stream and streams it to a “Cluster” ECU also connected via the automotive Ethernet network. The camera is based on the NXP “MPC5604E ” Salsa processor and on a competitor’s BroadR -Reach PHY. This also shows the interoperability of the TJA1100HN PHY with competitor’s products. Features: All displays are implemented with NXP i.MX6 processor, and a full implementation of the NXP Ethernet AVB Stack running on Linux. The camera is based on an NXP Salsa processor ( MPC5304EKIT ) . The Switch board that connects all displays and the camera uses the NXP SJA1105EL Automotive Ethernet switch and the TJA1100HN BroadR-Reach Ethernet PHY ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Featured NXP Products: Product Link IEEE 100BASE-T1 compliant Automotive Ethernet PHY Transceiver TJA1100HN | Automotive Ethernet PHY Transceiver | NXP  i.MX 6 Series i.MX 6 Series Applications Processors | Multicore Arm Cortex-A7/A9/M4 | NXP  Audio Video Bridging Software https://www.nxp.com/design/design-services/audio-video-bridging-software:AVB-SOFTWARE?&fsrch=1&sr=4&pageNum=1 Development Kit Enabling Video Over Ethernet with NXP® MPC5604E MCU NXP® MPC5604EKIT:Development Kit | NXP  ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________
