Elektrobit introduces EB zoneo GatewayCore to enhance automotive communications

Elektrobit has unveiled EB zoneo GatewayCore, a software solution designed to optimise the performance of automotive communications networks. This innovative tool, compatible with Infineon's AURIX TC4x automotive microcontroller family, simplifies the configuration of complex gateway use cases, significantly reducing integration efforts, time, and costs for OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

EB zoneo GatewayCore effectively bridges the gap that currently exists between hardware-dependent accelerators and Classic AUTOSAR. The tool provides flexible support for the most complex routing scenarios. This integrated hardware-software approach significantly improves the processing latency of information and simultaneously reduces the CPU load and power consumption for network-related tasks.

The new software was developed in close collaboration with leading hardware vendors, including Infineon. As an example of possible performance gains, on the Infineon AURIX TC4x, EB zoneo GatewayCore is capable of significantly accelerating controller-area network (CAN)-to-CAN or CAN-to-IEEE1722 routing on TC4x in terms of latency with zero CPU load. This was achieved by using an optimum combination of hardware blocks from Infineon and Elektrobit’s EB zoneo.

“EB zoneo GatewayCore combined with Infineon’s AURIX TC4x delivers the powerful one-two punch OEMs need to develop next-generation in-vehicle networks,” said Lars Wemme, Vice President ADAS, Chassis & EE-Architecture at Infineon. “Together with Elektrobit, we are saving carmakers and TIER1s time and money so they can focus their resources on other aspects of vehicle development while benefitting from a faster, more efficient network. Our routing engines completely offload the MCU cores from data routing and keep resources for application code to our customers.”

Infineon’s AURIX TC4x family of microcontrollers push the boundaries in automotive microcontroller usage for safe and secured processing and are designed for next-generation eMobility, ADAS, E/E architectures, and affordable artificial intelligence applications. The first AURIX TC4x engineering samples have already been shipped to lead customers for their design-in activities.

“Traditionally, a variety of different tools must be used to configure the hardware-related and basic software-related parts in the AUTOSAR environment,” said Mike Robertson, Chief Product Officer and Managing Director at Elektrobit. “With EB zoneo GatewayCore and Infineon’s AURIX TC4x we’re streamlining the process and making it easier for carmakers to introduce new vehicle functions that require high-speed, reliable, and secure in-vehicle networks.”
