Introduction:

Processing requirements for automotive ECUs has been on the rise. This has resulted in automotive microprocessors demanding more power while also going to smaller manufacturing nodes.

This trend presents a two-fold challenge for a power supply designer:

  • Deliver a high power
  • Deliver the higher power at a smaller allowed tolerance

Board space and budgets are constrained so the power supply designer needs to solve the above 2 challenges while staying below the space and cost budgets.

On top of this, there is a trend to meeting functional safety requirements for the system of which the power supply is a critical part of. This blog presents considerations a designer needs to take while designing such a power supply and how the PF53 core supply regulator from NXP Semiconductors offers a convenient solution.

Providing a low-cost and single-wire scheme, it comes as no surprise that LIN bus systems are increasingly used in the body domain of vehicles. Typical LIN applications, such as seat control, lighting, and steering wheel, are generating more requests for smaller bill of material and lower costs on system level. NXP’s latest smart QUAD LIN transceiver SJA1124 provides an innovative way to connect LIN bus to MCU for the electronic control units (ECUs) in the car to meet the aforementioned needs.

The number of LIN channels per application is increasing as the use of the LIN bus becomes widespread. Unlike the increasing number of LIN nodes, the space and bill of material for these applications are often shrinking to save cost. NXP’s SJA1124 is a QUAD LIN transceiver with integrated commander terminations, LIN controllers, and an SPI-to-LIN bridge. These features bring scalability and flexibility to the application network and MCU option, providing you with varied benefits.

The race is on

The automotive industry is being revolutionized by innovations in efficient energy management, new vehicle architectures and software-defined vehicles (SDVs).  Automakers are racing to develop new solutions, taking advantage of these paradigm shifts in the market to establish themselves as innovators and to secure competitive positioning for their products.   

Market adoption of electrified vehicles is ramping quickly, propelled by government legislation for improved efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.  Vehicle networks have become increasingly complex, and manufacturers are recognizing significant opportunities to reduce cost, vehicle weight and development cycle times by moving to domain and zonal architectures that consolidate functions into fewer electronic control units with increased processing power.  Software-defined vehicles, which take full advantage of these new vehicle architectures, will provide life-long upgrade possibilities, resulting in vehicles that improve in performance over their lifetime and enable new revenue streams for vehicle manufacturers.

The RT685-AUD-EVK allowed me to validate my custom frontend circuitry and get started on other critical DSP software development.  I was able to connect the piezoelectric saddle pickups on my engineering guitar into the test bed via the custom daughtercard. From here I can focus on firmware in the MCU and DSP cores in the RT685.

Vehicle electrical architectures are going through a transformation to achieve the consumers demand for driver assistance, electrification and service functions.  To support modern software-defined vehicles and reduce the cost of the vehicle network, and the associated wiring harness, it is being transitioned to a domain and zonal architectures (or a combination of them). While this evolution helps address the software and cost challenges, it brings other challenges, such as how to partition safety critical real time control operations, like vehicle propulsion.

After setting my new 16” M1Max Macbook Pro, I found some surprising results for the kernel compile time. The Ubuntu Virtual Machine on my M1 MBP compiled the i.MX Linux kernel faster than an Intel i9 3650 Dell Precision workstation running native Ubuntu. Since the comparison is a bit like apple to oranges, I tried to minimize the variables, and, I also compared an older i7 Dell Precision M4700 and a Xeon.
