Infineon Technologies AG and TTTech Auto released the second generation of their integrated automotive-grade safety solution for automated driving use cases. It is based on Infineon’s AURIX TC397XM microcontroller and TTTech Auto’s MotionWise safety software platform. It's designed to deliver full support and scalability for Level 2+ solutions up to Levels 4 and 5 of automated driving.

The first generation of Infineon’s AURIX microcontroller and TTTech Auto’s safety software platform MotionWise is a part of zFAS, Audi’s centerpiece for piloted driving, which premiered in the Audi A8. TTTech Auto optimized its MotionWise product for the second generation of Infineon’s AURIX TC397XM microcontroller. The MotionWise safety software platform and underlying hardware are designed to match the requirements of up to Level 5 automated driving functions.

Residing on an ASIL-D safety hardware, the second generation of the solution is optimized for safety-critical applications. It offers an increased ISO 26262 ASIL-D computing performance capability, a richer set of peripherals, and advanced security measures. MotionWise is designed to enable fail-operational performance, freedom from interference, and safety by design with highest ASIL levels for the whole platform. Each application hosted by MotionWise will run encapsulated from its peers.

“The second generation of Infineon’s AURIX microcontrollers was designed to enable highest safety and performance levels as required by the automotive industry,” said Peter Schäfer, Vice President and responsible for Infineon’s Automotive Microcontrollers. “The safety software platform MotionWise ensures safety by design, highest scalability, seamless integration, and deterministic real-time behavior. When combined, the two products bring tremendous value to our clients, accelerating the journey towards highly automated driving.”

“Safety is one of the most critical elements for Level 3, 4, and 5 automated driving functions,” said Dr. Stefan Poledna, Co-founder and member of the Executive Board of TTTech Auto. “Bringing together TTTech Auto’s and Infineon’s deep safety expertise by combining the MotionWise ASIL-D software platform with the next generation AURIX Safety Microcontroller lets clients address the extremely demanding safety topics seamlessly.”
