The module can simultaneously control the functions of the instrument clusters with safety-relevant Linux-based display elements as well as the Android-based infotainment (IVI) functions on a single R-Car H3 SoC. Coqos shares the R-Car H3 GPU between Android and Linux. This allows applications to be displayed on multiple displays and powerful, flexible cockpit systems to be implemented.
"OpenSynergy's hypervisor technology on the Renesas R-Car H3 platform ensures functional security and scalability for our infotainment systems," said Frederic Fonsalas, Director of Strategy at Parrot Faurecia Automotive. The multi-display cockpit controller with this technology will go into production at a European premium car manufacturer in 2019, says Parrot Faurecia.
The Coqos Hypervisor SDK takes full advantage of Renesas' advanced hardware and software virtualization. OpenSynergy's solution includes core features such as a shared display so that multiple virtual machines can flexibly and securely use different displays.
