Infineon and TTTech Auto collaborate to enable level 4 and level 5 automated driving

MUNICH and VIENNA, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), a world leader in semiconductor solutions that make life easier, safer and greener, and TTTech Auto, a global leader delivering safety platforms for automated driving and beyond, have released the second generation of their fully integrated automotive-grade safety solution for automated driving use cases. Based on Infineon's AURIX™ TC397XM microcontroller and TTTech Auto's MotionWise platform, the solution delivers full support and scalability for level 2+ solutions up to the advanced levels 4 and 5 of automated driving. It helps customers to improve software integration and validation thus reducing overall cost and achieving faster time-to-market.

The first generation of Infineon's AURIX microcontroller and TTTech Auto's safety software platform MotionWise are integral part of zFAS, Audi's centerpiece for piloted driving that premiered in the Audi A8. TTTech Auto optimized its series-proven product MotionWise for the new and even more powerful second generation AURIX TC397XM microcontroller to match the requirements of up to level 5 automated driving functions.

The second generation solution is further 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 enables 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, resulting in a safe environment where applications with different safety and real-time requirements can coexist and interact. This allows for seamless integration of applications.

Key component in more than 25 car models since 2017

Both companies gained extensive experience through close collaboration with key automotive industry players in long-term series production projects. As a key-component in more than 25 car models with production start since 2017, the first generation of this solution creates valuable synergies for series production. Several customers have already evaluated the second generation of this software/hardware combination and decided to use it in their ADAS series production programs with start of production in 2019.
