System-on-Modules for the automotive industry

MicroSys Electronics develops System-on-Module (SoM) based embedded system solutions for all types of commercial vehicles. As an NXP® Gold Partner, we work very closely with the S32 automotive team. Our main target customers in the automotive industry are commercial vehicle manufacturers. We supply Arm® Cortex® based onboard computers, HMIs and control computers for series production to them. We also provide solutions for mobile test and measurement equipment used in the development of non-commercial cars. Other related target markets include the construction machinery sector and agricultural vehicles.

Typical applications for our automotive SoMs

Buses, lorries, tractors, special vehicles, multi-functional vehicles, emergency vehicles, fire trucks, police vehicles, outside broadcast (OB) vehicles, mobile and crawler cranes , dump trucks, road cleaning vehicles, refrigerated trucks, road sweepers, concrete mixer trucks, conveyor trucks, garbage trucks, and many more.

New vehicle computing requirements

The primary drivers of new commercial vehicle demands are telematics based fleet management, predictive maintenance, and new pay-per-use business models. Other major fields of development are V2X communication for autonomous driving, and cooperative driving using platooning technologies. Vision systems also play a crucial role in all types of modern vehicles, and e-mobility places new demands on the design of drive electronics.

System-on-Modules – the fast track to customized controllers

Developing customized processors, as is common practice in large series production of private cars, is not an option in the case of special vehicles. Here, it is necessary to develop platform solutions that adapt existing NXP® automotive processor technology to the specific requirements of the various types of special vehicles. For this, vehicle manufacturers need strong partners who are experts in the provision of Arm® Cortex® based automotive processor platforms.

Comprehensive range of in-vehicle computer solutions

MicroSys Electronics provides end-to-end support to commercial vehicle manufacturers designing customized Arm® Cortex® based commercial vehicle computers – from HMIs and communication systems to edge servers for buses, including POS systems, ticket readers, video surveillance, and infotainment solutions. Of course, NXP® processor based control systems with integrated functional safety are also part of our portfolio.

Design-in services available upon request

We also offer comprehensive design-in services for NXP® S32 automotive and NXP® Layerscape® processor technology. Where required, support extends right through to the development and certification of the entire hardware platform. Our core competencies include:
