The next generation chip revolutionizing vehicle control systems
Introducing the OLEA U Series, the next generation of Field Programmable Control Unit (FPCU). Its mission: is to redefine the automotive semiconductor landscape with unmatched performance, efficiency, and control that outpaces conventional microcontrollers.
The advent of Electric Vehicles (EVs) has ushered in a transformative era in the automotive industry. Car manufacturers are globally reshaping vehicle architecture, as they evolve into software-defined, cloud-connected entities demanding robust computational power and real-time control. In this complex, fast-changing environment, the OLEA U Series stands as a beacon of innovation. Its hybrid architecture and heterogeneity capabilities make it the perfect match for zonal electrical/electronic architectures with distributed software, surpassing the capabilities of traditional microcontrollers.
As vehicles become increasingly connected and autonomous, the complexity surrounding the safety and security of passengers also grows. The OLEA U Series has been carefully engineered with this challenge in focus, seamlessly integrating functional safety and cybersecurity into its very core design.

Powered by the AxEC
The Advanced eXecution & Event Control (AxEC) unit combines programmable hardware, mathematical coprocessors, and configurable peripherals for direct sensor and actuator interfacing. The programmable hardware is called the Flexible Logic Units (FLU) and lies at the heart of the FPCU architecture. It is a programmable logic fabric equipped with lookup tables, flip-flops, SRAM, and signal processing units, programmed using standard hardware description languages like Verilog or VHDL. The OLEA U® Series introduces the concept of multiple FLU partitions, ranging 1-4.
AxEC handles fast-response-time processing and real-time control, while CPUs manage high-level and low-response-time software. Designers can choose CPU or AxEC for specific tasks, but AxEC typically handles complex processing, reducing CPU usage. Hardware processing ensures rapid, precise responses, regardless of event volume or frequency.

Safe with OLEA SiLant
The FPCU is designed to meet ASIL-D design ready, the highest level of the automotive safety integrity level of the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. The Safety Integrity Agent (SiLant®) of the OLEA® U Series serves as the central hub for all the safety mechanisms integrated into the FPCU and is responsible for detecting, containing, and reacting to faults in nanoseconds. SiLant® not only monitors latent and transient faults at the semiconductor level but also at the software and system levels.
With the introduction of multi-CPU and multi-FLU, OLEA® U FLU enables safe multitasking and function grouping with unified firmware virtualization from CPU down to FLU level. OLEA U has a deterministic architecture and guarantees Worst-Case Execution Time to design safety-critical applications

Secured with OLEA FHSM
The new generation of FPCU offers the highest protection against actual and future threats. The Flexible Hardware Security Module (FHSM) is a sub-system embedded in OLEA® U Series compliant with EVITA Full and the ISO 21434 automotive cybersecurity standard. It has dedicated programmable hardware that can host custom hardware-accelerated security functions to enhance protection or monitor potential security breaches of the system. This unique feature enables secured software execution and updates and protected real-time communications using an extended span of cryptographic algorithms.
