Development Platform Promises Secure Car-Connectivity

STMicroelectronics’ Modular Telematics Platform (MTP) offers designers an open development environment for prototyping advanced Smart Driving applications, including vehicle connectivity to back-end servers, road infrastructure, and other vehicles. The MTP integrates a central processing module based on the just-launched Telemaco3P secure automotive-telematics processor and a comprehensive set of automotive-connectivity devices both on the board and in plug-in modules, ensuring development flexibility and extensibility. The Telemaco3P secure telematics processor is described as the industry’s first automotive processor to include a dedicated Hardware Security Module.

 

The MTP also integrates the company’s automotive-grade multi-constellation GNSS Teseo IC with dead-reckoning sensors and the Telemaco3P’s integrated advanced automotive security module. These can be further enhanced with an optional on-board ST33 Secure Element.
