Cover Story

In an era when cars have become computers, automakers need a solution that cuts software development time. Today's cars are far more complex than ever before, requiring time-consuming software development effort that contributes to lengthy development cycles. However, by employing a solution that combines a comprehensive family of car semiconductor solutions with a common software environment, like QNX and NXP did work out, automakers can cut 40 % off their software development time through code reuse.

Main market Drivers

To most people, a car is simply a car: a four-wheeled, self-propelled vehicle used for transport. However, there is far more to today's automobile than meets the eye.

Increasingly, the car has become a computer on wheels - less a mechanical device and more a complex mixture of software and hardware that is sophisticated enough to rival the most advanced electronic systems. This mixture has resulted in an integration challenge as daunting as any technical issue facing...
