Hypervisor solutions drive car cockpit advancements
Visitors to embedded world 2020 in Nuremberg saw a demonstration of Green Hills Software’s advanced hypervisor solutions on MARELLI’s latest AMOLED display multi-OS cockpit solution.
Based on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platform software-defined automotive cockpit features the Android operating system combined with digital cluster and safety applications in a single, high performance electronic control unit (ECU).
Both domains are safely and securely consolidated and separated by the Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system and its Multivisor secure virtualisation services.
The MARELLI platform relies on the proven real-time INTEGRITY technology, certified up to and including ISO 26262 ASIL D, and its safe and secure Multivisor virtualisation services to safely combine safety-critical services driving multiple displays, such as the instrument cluster with an Android-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system.
Two displays are separate AMOLED 1920x720 bonded together under a unique glass.
In addition, the MARELLI software teams use the ASIL D-qualified MULTI integrated development environment to build and debug their software to achieve the highest performance, safety and security.
“We are very pleased that MARELLI selected Green Hills technology and experience for the safe and secure foundation of its latest advancements in mixed-criticality software cockpit platform offerings,” said Dan Mender, vice-president of business development, Green Hills Software. “System-critical functions, safely and securely combined with guest operating systems such as Linux and Android, are key priorities for the automotive market. Now, global automotive customers can be enabled with an industry proven, advanced E-Cockpit solution, reducing the cost and time-to-market for deployment of the next generation in complex software-centric solutions.”
