The e-cockpit has been co-developed by Dongfeng-Nissan Technology Center, Hangsheng Electronics, and NXP. It is centred on NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor. The dynamic dashboard features digital clusters for multimedia, extended functionality, anytime online navigation and sensor-based climate control. The hardware partitioning architecture and multi-OS capability without hypervisor requirements of the i.MX 8QuadMax ensures that Venuncia 3.0 PLUS subsystems remain functioning.
The i.MX 8QuadMax has a ‘One Processor, Multiple Systems’ design to assist the development, testing and deploying of multiple operating systems. Advanced security technologies and standards are also integrated, including encrypted boot, elliptical curve cryptography, secure key storage, as well as support for AES, SHE and other automotive security standards.
i.MX 8QuadMax features two Arm Cortex-A72 cores, four Cortex-A53 cores, two Cortex-M4F cores, two GC7000XS/VX GPUs and HiFi 4 DSP, LPDDR4 memory support as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet with Audio Video Bridging (AVB) capability.
