The cooperation between Elektrobit and Renesas Electronics will enable car manufacturers to create future HMI platforms cost effectively
ERLANGEN, Germany, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The runtime solution of Elektrobit's (EB) development platform for human machine interfaces (HMIs), EB GUIDE Graphic Target Framework (GTF), has been ported to the Renesas Electronics Corporation (Renesas) R-Car H1. This is the latest member of the R-Car series of automotive systems-on-chip (SoCs).
The collaboration will enable car manufacturers to use the high-end Renesas chip in combination with the EB GUIDE GTF to utilize the advanced graphical capabilities of the SoC. Carmakers will benefit by a huge acceleration in development processes and will also be able to create cost effective prototypes of future HMI platforms.
Masayasu Yoshida, senior manager of Automotive Information Systems Solution Department, Renesas Electronics Corporation said, "This powerful combination of one of the industry's most comprehensive solutions for the development of multimodal infotainment systems and a leading SoC platform that offers one of the best graphical performances in the embedded market will be a decisive driver for future development."
Benefits for carmakers and suppliers The R-Car H1 SoC by Renesas, the leading supplier of semiconductors in the automotive sector, is particularly dedicated to high performance multimedia radio navigation head units. The integrated GPU (graphic processing unit) is suitable for demanding 3-D graphics applications and offers one of the best graphical performances in the embedded market. Now carmakers are able to use the high-end Renesas SoC with the EB GUIDE GTF for the early prototyping stage of instrument clusters, infotainment systems and navigation systems.
Thanks to the cooperation with EB, carmakers can estimate the R-Car H1's performance in early development stages. Moreover they can save costs and time to build a prototyping environment due to the off-the-shelf GTF porting. This means, they have immediate access to state-of-the-art technology for HMI development and can try out and evaluate their solutions through the specification process to the implementation process. Existing and future EB GUIDE users are free to concentrate entirely on their key area of expertise, the development of their own HMIs.
'Renesas' R-Car H1 SoC offers one of the most complete system integrations available in today's market.
Martin Schleicher, vice president for Infotainment Products at EB noted, "The collaboration with Renesas Electronics Corporation offers EB customers a ready-to-use solution for future HMI development through one of the worldwide leading SoC platforms for next-generation car infotainment."
