Real-Time Innovations (RTI) announced a new partnership with NXP Semiconductor. RTI’s Connext Drive can now run on NXP’s automotive-grade S32G vehicle network processors.

This combination enables a zonal electrical/electronic architecture through a flexible, modular, and scalable platform.

The S32G is designed to address performance, networking, and security within autonomous vehicles. As for RTI’s technology; Connext Drive is a standard-based framework that manages complex data distribution for real-time connectivity in autonomous vehicles.

Per a company press release, by running Connext Drive natively on S32G vehicle network processors, OEMs and Tier 1s gain access to a next-generation zonal E/E architecture through a real-time, scalable and safety-certifiable platform that connects the entire system from safety domain to backend, across all ecosystems.

Further, the two companies are collaborating to integrate Connext Drive with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) on the S32G network processor and SJA1110 network switch. This provides reliability, predictability, time synchronization, and bandwidth allocation for automotive applications.
