June 19, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Mentor Graphics has announced the release of a Genivi 2.0-compliant, Linux-based In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) Solution. The Mentor Embedded IVI Base Platform includes new Genivi 2.0 features such as audio manager support and lower-level system management functions. Target hardware platform support includes the Sabre and SabreLite IVI solutions from Freescale, specifically targeted at the IVI marketplace.

Mentor Embedded's IVI Linux Solution integrates graphics, communication and multimedia middleware with libraries, system infrastructure, and management components on top of Linux, and drivers for specific hardware. With its development tools and expert services, Mentor Embedded provides a comprehensive solution for automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers, enabling them to build the next generation of IVI systems and include open source software components.

Adit, a joint venture of automotive suppliers Robert Bosch Car Multimedia and Denso, has already selected Mentor Graphics as one of their OSV partners to develop a Genivi 2.0-compliant software platform, said Adit managing director Wilhelm Grabow. “We chose to work with Mentor due to their active participation in Genivi and availability of Genivi-based standard product portfolio, plus Mentor's extensive experience in Open Source consumer electronics software product development," Grabow said.
