Renesas rolls R-Car based cockpit reference design
Automotive cockpits integrate an increasing flood of electronic functions and displays, making them expensive and complex to develop. Chipmaker Renesas now has introduced a complete reference design for the cockpit, based on its R-Car M3 SoC.

Automotive integrated cockpit is a challenging space because the integration of many different functions, such as multiple operating systems, a rich UI, Bluetooth, and navigation, requires significant system-level insight. Renesas’ new reference solution promises to reduce the implementation burden, allowing customers to jumpstart their application development in a cost-effective way with production-focused hardware and software, the company says.

The solution provides OEMs and Tier 1s a white box baseline solution that can be customized to meet different application requirements. Based on the R-Car M3 SoC, the cockpit solution is pre-configured to showcase hardware and software features for out-of-the-box development. Customers can then reconfigure, upgrade, or expand on the system to create tailored solutions that match their unique needs.

The solution is delivered as a transparent mixture of FOSS (Free and Open-Source Software), Renesas software and third-party software by key members of Renesas’ automotive partner network. OEMs and production partners can modify, change, and distribute the Renesas code to best fit the application design needs.
