Cortex-R52 NXP S32Z and S32E Real-Time Processors

The NXP S32Z and S32E real-time processors extend the NXP’s S32 Automotive Platform and target new consolidated domain and zonal vehicle architectures. Designed to provide the real-time behavior of microcontrollers, but with an unparalleled combination of gigahertz speed, safe multi-app integration and memory expansion capabilities, the devices target propulsion domain control, electrification and safety applications.

The S32Z2 and S32E2 series devices are manufactured in 16 nm technology and combine eight Arm® Cortex®-R52 cores, running at 600 MHz to 1 GHz, with Cortex-M33 cores for special purposes like system management and communications. For advanced timer functions to be realized in real-time applications, a clustered Generic Timer IP Module (GTM v4.1) is implemented. A network-on-chip (NoC) ensures fast communication between the main core clusters and other functional blocks. Depending on the device, up to 64 MB integrated flash memory is available. The non-volatile memory can be extended with external QuadSPI NOR, eMMC or SDHC NAND memories, as well as with LPDDR4 flash memory supporting large applications and data.
