NXP launches GreenBox vehicle electrification development platform

NXP GreenBox

NXP Semiconductors has launched its GreenBox vehicle electrification development platform.

GreenBox is one of the development platforms for NXP's next-generation S32 electrification MCUs.

he company says this provides a high-performance processing platform to design and test new control algorithms and energy management tasks critical for next-generation hybrid and fully-electric vehicles.

NXP says that by using the GreenBox development environment, developers can also tap into the mix of high-performance and highly optimised peripherals, including advanced timers, motor control peripherals and analogue sub-systems to interface with their own development hardware.

Ray Cornyn, vice-president of vehicle dynamics and safety at NXP, said: "The combination of regulatory and market indicators as well as long automotive development cycles require automakers to begin the development of HEV/EV systems now - before the next wave of processors for electrification are available.

"GreenBox meets this challenge by providing automakers a hardware development environment before the NXP S32 electrification MCU is avaiable."
