Silicon Mobility, an Intel company, has introduced a system-on-chip (SoC) designed to improve the performance, streamline design and production processes of electric vehicles (EVs).

Called OLEA U310, the SoC also is aimed to ensure seamless operation across various EV station platforms. The latest edition of Silicon Mobility’s field programmable control unit (FPCU) portfolio is built with a hybrid and heterogenous architecture that embeds multiple software and hardware programmable processing and control units into its core design including safety and cybersecurity.

Silicon Mobility said this architecture surpasses the capabilities of traditional microcontrollers as it hosts and bridges in one chip the time-based and multi-task software application needs with multi-function control requirements.

The need for this SoC is due to the high purchase price of EVs remaining one of the biggest barriers to potential car buyers. EVs are more expensive to build than traditional gasoline vehicles primarily due to the costs of the advanced battery and e-motor technology, Silicon Mobility said.

Additional features of the SoC include:

  • 3x Cortex-R52 at 350 MHz
  • 2x FLUs at 175Mhz
  • SILant 2.0
  • Flexible HSM
  • 8 MB of P-Flash
  • 256 kB of D-Flash
  • 1 MB of SRAM
  • CAN FD, CAN XL, Ethernet
  • ISO/SAE 21434 certified ISO 26262 ASIL-D and ISO/SAE 21434 compliant
  • AEC-Q100 Grade 1
