Automotive OEMs increasingly mandate the use of the open and industry-leading Autosar standard in their ECUs where it simplifies development through software reuse and improved code quality and reliability. Current Autosar solutions, however, are often complex and require a significant initial investment cost. This limits their adoption and in turn, innovation in automotive platforms.
Arccore’s starter kit for TI's AWR1642BOOSt EVM mmWave radar sensor includes the market proven Arctic Core basic software, Arccore’s own Arctic Studio tool chain as well as a Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL) from TI. New starter kit components are available free of charge with a 60-day evaluation license and are fully integrated in a user-friendly integrated development environment (IDE). Combined with the AWR1642BOOSt EVM sensor’s features, broad scalability and software tools, the kit provides a new starting point for developers of traditional and emerging Autosar applications.
Arctic Core contains a set of features required for Automotive ECUs including communication, diagnostic and ISO 26262 compliant safety services, and a real-time operating system. Arctic Studio IDE provides a complete software development environment based on the Eclipse framework. The MCAL software components enable access to the MCU’s peripherals including communication and control ports for input/output.
