As the world's largest automotive semiconductor company, Renesas enjoys experience across all automaker requirements: quality, safety, and security. Due to our lengthy experience in the automotive industry, we provide world class support and a fully scalable range of products. 46% of cars on the road have Renesas silicon on-board. With greater than 10 years' presence in Car Audio and Infotainment our advanced silicon engineering results in next generation, ARM based infotainment SoCs delivering the best price-performance and scalability in the industry.
For premium Infotainment the lineup starts with the current flagship R-Car H2 SoC powered by 4 Cortex-A15 and 4 Cortex-A7 (8 total cores) enabling big.LITTLETM flexibility. The R-Car M2 and E2 models scale to the mid-range and all the way down to a dual Cortex-A7 configuration for entry vehicles and display audio designs (i.e. Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto).
Maximum performance graphics, embedded automotive I/O such as CAN, MOST, USB3, Ethernet AVB, WiFi/BT, multimedia CODECs, multi-channel audio/video and DSPs are included. The wide range of solutions provide significant software reuse across IVI, Cockpit, and ADAS designs. ADAS specific starter kits include multiple visual computing interfaces and accelerators for prototyping next generation safety systems.
All of the current GENIVI Demo projects support the R-Car M2 Porter board. R-Car M2 consists of dual ARM Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ configured up to 1.5GHz per core. The full set of IVI interfaces are provided on GENIVI compliant reference boards suitable for immediate development.
