TOKYO, JAPAN. Renesas’ new Cockpit Reference Solution offers an out-of-the-box development experience for efficient digital cockpit application design that’s based on Renesas R-Car M3 system-on-chip (SoC), offering production focused, module-level hardware and software supplemented by Renesas’ automotive partner network to accelerate system-level design.

“Automotive integrated cockpit is a challenging space because the integration of so many different cockpit functions, such as multiple operating systems, a rich UI, Bluetooth, and navigation, requires significant system-level insight,” said Renesas Electronics’ Senior Director of Automotive Systems, Daniel Sisco. “Leveraging Renesas' deep expertise in both silicon and system-level design, our reference solution reduces the implementation burden, allowing customers to jumpstart their application development in a cost-effective way with production-focused hardware and software.”

Renesas will be appearing at TU-Automotive Detroit 2019 from June 5-6 at booth C190, in Novi, MI to showcase the new Cockpit Reference Solution.
