Stuttgart, Germany – 6 September, 2023 – P3 digital services, leading provider of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems, announced today that its flagship SPARQ OS platform is being integrated with the i.MX 8QuadMax applications processors from NXP® Semiconductors.
The solution is being created to deliver a rapid-launch, pre-integrated hardware-plus-software platform to support the global automotive market, enabling fast deployment of quality infotainment systems in vehicles.
SPARQ OS is the dynamic and rapidly expanding IVI solution developed by P3 based on Android Automotive OS, the fastest growing in-vehicle operating system in the world today. SPARQ’s cockpit platform includes an app store, navigation, digital and personal voice assistant, charging, media and entertainment. It features fully automated over-the-air software and firmware updates.
Multiple benefits to OEMs
Through this integration, OEMs can accelerate time to market for new products. Manufacturers can also reap significant economies in both time and investment.
Additionally, Google pre-certification of the all-in-one solution could further save manufacturers millions of dollars. The solution transforms OEMs’ ability to bring innovative vehicles to the global marketplace more rapidly.
The collaboration aims for NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor integrated with SPARQ to have market appeal that stretches beyond carmakers to include manufacturers of commercial vehicles, motorcycles and other electric vehicles.
The technology integration is set to deliver strong value even more widely across the automotive innovation environment, including for creators of new vehicles running on alternative power sources, including solar energy and hydrogen.
P3 will demonstrate SPARQ OS capabilities and porting on the NXP i.MX 8QuadMax application processor at CES 2024 in Las Vegas.
