October 15, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Sweden-based tool vendor ArcCore has launched a series of products compliant with the industry-standard Autosar’s latest version 4.x. Included is a completely new version of the embedded development tool chain Arctic Studio – now with a new innovative role-based licensing model supporting Application developers and integrators as well as platform developers.

The tool chain incorporates the features of the renowned Arctic Studio for Autosar v3.1 and adds a number of enhancements in the Autosar v4.x standard.

Included in the product launch is also a new version of Arctic Core - an open source Basic Software embedded platform for automotive. Arctic Core for Autosar 4.x includes all important new major features in the new version of the standard, still providing all the features from the dual licensing model acknowledged by more than 37.000 downloaders and customers all over the world. The dual-licensing model offers an Open Source model for trials and evaluation and a commercial model for prototyping and mass-production. 

Autosar is already an established standard in the automotive market and many leading companies are now gaining benefits from increased productivity, improved quality and faster time-to-market by the use of Autosar and ArcCore development tools. ArcCore's new series of products continue to offer a low entry threshold into the Autosar world for projects scaling from research to mass-production.
