NXP announced the collaboration with ART during NXP tech days in Detroit

NXP Semiconductors N.V.(NASDAQ: NXPI) during its tech days in Detroit announced the collaboration with ART Spa. For NXP are two days of technical inspiration that combine world-class training and hands-on participation with insights from some of today’s most creative technology leaders to show its latest high tech solutions.

ART as an extremely technology-driven company, is honored by this collaboration time to create ultra-intuitive infotainment systems for luxury sport cars known for speed, power and exclusivity.

Indeed ART is designing its ARTIST 8 Development platform with NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax.

The infotainment system provides any kind of in-vehicle entertainment features, including smartphone integration, making them easy and safe to use. Car occupants have complete control of multimedia, plus the ability to access off-line and connected contents and manage vehicle comfort functions. 

ART is excited by the i.MX 8QuadMax processor’s ability to fuse multiple automotive domains using a single processor – this reduces weight in the vehicle, which helps meet fuel efficiency standards, while also bringing seamless infotainment capabilities to life.

eCockpit innovative solution

ART had the pleasure to participate to Embedded World 2019 as guests in NXP booth, to present an eCockpit solution based on i.MX8 QuadMax System-on-Chip.

We leveraged i.MX8 HW resource partitioning capabilities to run infotainment and instrument cluster functions as separate environments on the same processor, without using any SW supervisor. At the same time, we showed how these functions can be merged together in order to provide a smooth experience for the car occupants.

Many thanks to NXP for hosting us – keep up the great work! n
