|NXP and Cohda Wireless Enable Rapid V2X Development with Software Agreement|
EINDHOVEN, Netherlands, and Sydney, Australia, Nov. 3, 2016 --NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI), today announced a software agreement with Cohda Wireless, a leading software specialist for secure automotive communication applications. The agreement gives NXP full access to Cohda's industry leading algorithms for the rapid development of V2X standard enhancements and additional applications.
Under the new agreement, NXP can provide its customers with enhanced firmware for its NXP RoadLink™ chipset. The streamlined software licensing allows NXP and Cohda's joint customers to speed up V2X and Connected Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) developments to meet the needs of shorter time-to-market and even more secure solutions.
NXP and Cohda Wireless enable NXP V2X systems to securely communicate important driving information between vehicles for safe decision making. Several of the key capabilities of V2X systems, such as "seeing" around corners and electronically platooning vehicles, benefit from Cohda's innovative software. The development of secure and reliable V2X technology is a crucial part of achieving highly automated driving even when no other communication network is available.
In January 2013, NXP, together with Cisco, acquired a stake in V2X and CAV software leader Cohda- combining forces to advance Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). NXP/Cohda RoadLINK™ technology and Cohda's V2X software applications are already being incorporated into first production vehicles, such as General Motors', via Delphi's V2X communications platform.
The completion of this contract highlights the strong and ongoing relationship between European technology companies and the Australian technology sector. The agreement was signed in Sydney, Australia with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in attendance, as part of their official state visit to Australia.
