Deploying zonal architecture to address future requirements for connected, electric, and self-driving vehicles brings new development flexibility and challenges. One of those challenges is the various wake-up sources in combination with the instant-on and low power requirements of several early-access functions.

In this free webinar, Bernd Elend and Osvaldo Romero explain how NXP’s system experiences in wake-up and low power can support use cases and wake-up requirements and optimize communication traffic towards zonal power distribution modules and associated edge nodes.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Learn how moving from domain-based CAN-connected to zonalized Ethernet-based architectures can introduce delays and more complexity in handling function availability
  • Find out how delays are caused by the wake-up of many components and modules on the path from the source signal to actuation, impacting “Instant-On” functions, such as vehicle access
  • Discover how functions without strict “Instant-On” needs are negatively impacted because new architectures prevent the easy selection of functions
  • Gain insight into how NXP is collaborating with global OEMs to introduce smart new networking functions and to help identify the best approach for each architectural choice
