Why
SDVerse?

“Automotive grade software development is rapidly transforming and we all need to ask ourselves how we get customers really unique, differentiating features faster. Part of that is identifying the common underlying code that can be shared in the name of higher quality and lower costs for our end customers. This first-ever software marketplace creates an independent, industry-driven one-stop-shop for embedded systems software, significantly expanding access to new innovations, helping to drive down cost, and allowing companies like GM to implement critical software more quickly.”
Dan Nicholson
Vice President, Strategic Technology Initiatives, General Motors
“Magna’s participation in SDVerse is driven by our ongoing commitment to foster collaboration and drive the automotive industry forward. By embracing this innovative marketplace, we aim to create a more interconnected ecosystem that encourages OEMs, suppliers, and specialty software developers to collaborate and co-create cutting-edge solutions.”
Joerg Grotendorst
Senior Vice President, Corporate R&D, Magna
“The market for automotive software is expected to nearly double this decade, outpacing the growth of software development talent pools. The current paradigm for software sourcing will not be able to overcome this growing gap without sacrificing both profitability and the auto industry’s aspirations for software defined vehicles. SDVerse addresses these pain points, offering a wide range of benefits across the industry.”

“To successfully manage the complexity and support the fast integration of automotive innovations, vehicles have to become open and software-defined, moving away from a closed and inflexible hardware-defined approach. The software-defined vehicle (SDV) revolution requires a transparent marketplace that offers broad software product insights to streamline the deployment of new vehicle capabilities. We have been investing in software across our complete portfolio, and as the SDVerse semiconductor Launch Partner, we value the opportunity to help contribute to the success of the marketplace. NXP has a clear path to provide valuable automotive software solutions to global automakers that remove SDV entry barriers, reduce complexity and accelerate time to market.”
