AURIX™ TC4xx SW application architecture supports next level of automotive applications

AURIX TC4x SW Application architecture supports next level of automotive applications

The next-generation AURIX™ increases computing capabilities with a SIMD vector DSP called a parallel processing unit (PPU). The PPU has advantages over traditional CPUs in relation to matrix operation acceleration, data processing, neural network-based algorithms and high-speed control implementations. This presentation introduces a software ecosystem that supports AUTOSAR and enables high-level programming languages.

Next generation AURIX™ is a heterogeneous architecture providing new computing abilities for new implementations

AURIX™ TC3xx:

  • Enables SMP and AMP

Next-generation AURIX™ TC4xx

  • Offers heterogeneous variant of SMP and AMP
  • PPU can accelerate any functional block stack
  • PPU is service provider
  • Opens new computational opportunities

PPU acts as seamless service provider when using virtualized CPUs

AURIX™ TC4xx offers TriCore™ virtualization

  • Seamless integration of functions, reducing standalone ECUs
  • PPU does not distinguish between virtualized and non virtualized clients
  • Benefits for new and legacy application stacks

New SoC architecture includes PPU compute cluster to support next level of automotive applications

AURIX™ TC4xx offers a tremendous computational power boost compared to the previous generation deploying new applications with complex computing needs

AURIX™ TC4xx SoC architecture means that applications can now be distributed to run on TriCores and PPU

The demonstration shows that the PPU:

  • Middleware detects requests by dedicated AUTOSAR stacks and handles prioritized execution
  • All forms of computations are preserved – traditional AMP and SMP
  • They are extended in their topologies by heterogeneous computing

SW ecosystem will support AUTOSAR and tool-chain enabling high-level programming languages
