STMicroelectronics launches smart gateway platform
STMicroelectronics announced a new Smart Gateway Platform (SGP) for prototyping automotive Smart-Gateway and Domain-Controller applications.
The modular SGP, built on gigabit Ethernet communication between the secure and ASIL-B Telemaco3P microprocessor (MPU) and the ASIL-D SPC58/Chorus microcontroller (MCU), is designed to deliver powerful processing capability to handle firewall functionalities, predictive maintenance, Over-The-Air (OTA) upgrades, and high data-rate communication among different ECUs and to the cloud.
While the Chorus MCU provides real-time, low-power, and secure in-vehicle connectivity through its multiple CAN-FD interfaces, the Telemaco3P MPU extends gateway computational capabilities by delivering dual Arm Cortex A7 processing power with the Posix OS support and embedded Security Module to handle OTA updates, firewall, and predictive-maintenance functions.
The SGP reference design features in-vehicle network interfaces including multiple Ethernet and CAN ports, as well as support for LIN and FlexRay connections. It is deployed with a starter package that includes hardware design files, hardware/software documentation, software utilities (drivers and flashers), and sample applications.
It also integrates expansion connections to Wi-Fi and LTE modules for full prototyping of use cases requiring cloud-connectivity simulation. Its modular architecture provides an framework intended for easy platform scalability in performance, networking, and software.
