The software solutions for the MPC56xx and MPC57xx microcontroller families from NXP enable customers to develop numerous automotive applications such as gateways, functional safety, electric motor control, motor control, radar, brakes, steering and suspension. To support this industry standard, NXP now offers Autosar MCAL and the operating system software for the MPC56xx MCUs free of charge. For the MPC57xx family microcontrollers, NXP announced a price reduction for Autosar 3.0 / 4.0 MCAL and the operating system.

The NXP products for automotive applications are implemented with MISRA and Automotive SPICE-compliant development processes. For software designed for MCUs from the NXP SafeAssure program, the development process has been extended to ensure compliance with ISO 26262 for functional safety.

NXP software can also be integrated with other software developed for Autosar, as well as AUTOSAR configuration tools from other vendors. The NXP MCAL packages include drivers for all major MCU peripherals for initialization, communication, I / O handling, and storage management.

 NXP also offers a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) for automotive applications that provides the key software components for the operation of the MCCs of the MPC57xx MCU product family. The first MCU supported by this SDK is the MPC5748G type for gateway applications.

In addition, there are additional software stacks and middleware as part of the overall system solution, including TCP / IP, Ethernet, and USB stacks for fast data transfer; SDHC for connecting non-volatile memory cards; Safety software to meet functional safety requirements and increasing data security requirements, as well as extensive Math and Motor Control libraries, and a Motor Control Development Toolbox for model-based design of engine control applications.

The pre-release version of the SDK is available free of charge for download on .
