The development and recent changes that took place in infotainment electronics, together with the steep increase in the demand for ADAS and safety features, is demanding that OEMs re-think the electronic architecture of the car. The increasing complexity in the design of car’s electrical and electronic (E/E) systems makes engineers define common functionalities among various electronics systems and to cluster those, when possible, in a fewer number of control units. Although this rationalization is easily understandable on paper, the above statement hides several practical difficulties in the design of electronic control units (ECUs), and engineers often need to combine different requirements of performance, bandwidth, security, reliability and finally flexibility and cost in the different ECUs. Ethernet-based networks are expected to have an important role in this revolution.

The merger would represent the union of the traditional automotive world with the “new frontier," driven by connectivity and needs for high processing power. NXP’s strength (also through acquisition of FSL) is the reliability and quality standards required in automotive. On the other hand Qualcomm brings its expertise in the connectivity and artificial intelligence applications.
