Green Hills Software Announces Renesas Electronics' R-Car Automotive
Platform 
Targeting Digital Clusters, Infotainment Systems for the Modern
Digital Cockpit and Advanced Driver Assist (ADAS) Vision and Sensor
Fusion Systems 
TOKYO, JAPAN and SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- 
Green Hills Software, the largest independent software vendor for the
Internet of Things, today announced a comprehensive family of
solutions for the Renesas ARM(R) Cortex(R)-A15 and Cortex-A7 based
R-Car platform based around the Green Hills INTEGRITY(R) real time
operating system (RTOS) and INTEGRITY Multivisor(TM) secure
hypervisor, including support for the revolutionary new R-Car V2H
ADAS platform announced today by Renesas Electronics Corporation. 
Green Hills has worked with Renesas, the world's number one
microcontroller supplier, to create an 'INTEGRIT
Y for R-Car' support
package that includes support for all of the major features of the
R-Car processors.  
"Renesas sees Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY as the
industry-leading product in the RTOS space, providing microprocessor
manufacturers with a platform to deliver secure, reliable,
high-performance solutions," said Ryuji Omura, executive vice
president at Renesas Electronics Corporation. "We are very pleased to
use Green Hills INTEGRITY as the target platform for the R-Car
support package, providing INTEGRITY-based solutions to automotive
manufacturers to bring their products to market faster and more cost
effectively." 
The supported high-performance OpenGL ES 3D graphics processor
enables digital cluster and infotainment solutions with unparalleled
graphics quality.  
The INTEGRITY Multivisor utilizes the ARM virtualization extensions
available on the Renesas R-Car devices to enable one of the world's
highest performing multi-domain infotainment and safety-critical
execution environments for next-generation automotive designs.
Shipping since 2003, INTEGRITY Multivisor is the only virtualization
solution built upon safety-certified separation kernel technology
that provides highly assured isolation between the instrument
cluster, ADAS, rear-view camera, and other safety-critical automotive
subsystems functions while simultaneously and safely hosting popular
infotainment operating systems su
ch as Linux and Android, on a same
single multicore Renesas R-Car device. This powerful, next-generation
automotive ECU consolidation architecture also enables OEMs and Tier
1s to reduce design/integration complexity and time-to-market while
delivering the core foundation for the vehicle software-defined
cockpit. 
The on-chip image recognition and image processing using Image
Processor (IMP) and Image Renderer (IMR) peripherals of the Renesas
R-Car devices, together with the full complement of drivers for
hardware accelerated image decoders and video signal processors, is a
must-have for high-performance safety-focused ADAS vision solutions.
The fast and highly precise Green Hills Ethernet AVB (Audio Video
Bridging) solution allows for complete integration into the modern
vehicle, and provides the performance needed for fusion of multiple
ADAS information channels. The acclaimed safety pedigree of the
INTEGRITY RTOS is a requirement for any ADAS solution being built to
meet modern functional safety and ISO 26262 requirements. The
semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles of tomorrow will be built on
the 'INTEGRITY for R-Car' solution that is available today. 
"Our partnership with Renesas provides customers with one of the most
advanced automotive solutions in the market that relies on the
industry's most trusted real-time operating system -- INTEGRITY --
and its award winning security architecture," said Tim Reed,
vice-president Advanced Products at Green Hills Software. "The Green
Hills solution for Renesas Electronics' R-Car devices will be the
industry's only run-time and development software on that platform
with guaranteed real-time determinism and safety for manufacturers of
automotive devices." 
Availability
 INTEGRITY releases supporting the
R-Car family of devices are available from Green Hills today. 
Renesas DevCon Japan 2014
 Green Hills Software will be attending
this private exhibition to be held at The Prince Park Tower Tokyo
hotel on September 2 of this year to introduce and demonstrate its
R-Car V2H and other R-Car solutions.
