This multimedia computer powered by a Tegra 4 processor is designed for rear-seat use, yet seamlessly integrates with the car’s audio and video systems. It has been hardened to withstand a wide range of operational conditions, from -40 degrees Celsius to 80 degrees Celsius, and to withstand the shocks and vibrations that driving conditions can present.

Featuring a 10.2-inch screen, the dockable tablet runs the latest version of the Android operating system, with full access to Google Play and the Android App Store for hundreds of thousands of e-books, music, games and films that can be enjoyed by passengers in the car.

“Audi and NVIDIA engineers work closely together to develop hardware and software that truly delight customers,” said Mathias Halliger, chief architect of Infotainment Systems at Audi. “With the flexible VCM platform, we are able to quickly bring to market a new generation of Tegra-based infotainment systems, as well as an integrated mobile computer, matching the rapid cadence of the consumer electronics industry.”

Cockpit of the Future
Additionally, Audi unveiled a new, fully digital instrument cluster, powered by Tegra 3. The virtual cockpit — which will first appear in the 2015 Audi TT sports coupe — delivers clearly presented information to the driver on a 12.3-inch, high-definition display.

The virtual cockpit features refined digital gauges with smooth needle animation, as well as beautiful 3D maps, delivering an elegant, informative display. Drivers have the ability to configure the dashboard controls based on their personal preferences.

“The cockpit of the future is about creating an appealing and useful experience while minimizing distraction,” said Robert Kolar, leader of Instrument Cluster Systems at Audi. “NVIDIA enables us to easily achieve this goal.”

NVIDIA Automotive Technology Driving Innovation
The power of the NVIDIA Tegra for automotive applications will be demonstrated in NVIDIA booth 30207 at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 7-10, in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

ARM Targets Automotive and Industrial Control Markets with New Architecture

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

ARMv8-R Architecture brings new capabilities to Embedded System Control and Safety Applications

WHAT: ARM has disclosed technical details of its new ARMv8-R architecture for real-time embedded processors for use in automotive electronics and other integrated safety and control applications.  The ARMv8-R architecture builds on the rich heritage of the 32-bit ARMv7-R architecture used for the company’s market-leading Cortex®-R series of real time processors and complements the ARMv8-A architecture announced in 2011. 

The ARMv8-R architecture specification will significantly enhance ARM’s real time 32-bit processor solutions with new features to expand their functionality and capability to meet for rapidly-evolving market requirements. In particular, processors implementing the ARMv8-R architecture will be suitable for the rapidly-expanding number of safety-related applications in automotive and industrial control.

A key innovation within the ARMv8-R architecture is the introduction of a ‘bare metal’ Hypervisor mode which enables programmers to combine different operating systems, applications and real-time tasks on a single processor whilst ensuring strict isolation between them.  This facilitates software consolidation and re-use which will accelerate time-to-market and reduce development costs. 

In addition, the ARMv8-R architecture will enable overall improvements in software quality and will support increasingly sophisticated embedded programming techniques such as model-based automated code generation.

The deployment of ARMv8-R architecture will reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve performance of embedded systems to support emerging automotive applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Vehicle to Vehicle communications as well as factory automation applications and Human-Machine Interface.  For example, a microcontroller incorporating an ARMv8-R processor could host Linux for graphical management and networking functions together with real-time operating system workloads such as motor control.

The ARMv8-R architecture also permits coexistence of both virtual memory and protected memory systems on the same processor enabling an Operating System using memory management, such as Linux, to be integrated with a Real Time Operating System.  Ecosystem support for the ARMv8-R architecture is anticipated in a number of Operating System products including INTEGRITY® from Green Hills Software, Nucleus® from Mentor Graphics, and eT-Kernel from eSOL. These integrated hardware and software solutions will be capable of supporting stringent automotive and industrial interoperability and safety standards, including AUTOSAR, ISO 26262 and IEC 61508.

Other ARMv8-R architecture features include:

– Improved memory protection scheme which substantially reduces context switching time

– ARM NEON™ advanced SIMD instructions for significantly improved image signal processing tasks

– Instructions carried over from the ARMv8-A architecture such as CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) for use in detecting the corruption of program code or data.

In support of the introduction of the ARMv8-R architecture, ARM is working to ensure a robust design ecosystem to support the new features. The DS-5 ARM tools and Fast Models already support the ARMv8-A architecture, and support for the ARMv8-R architecture will be available to lead partners Q3’14.  In addition timed models, automotive simulation system level tools and mechanical and electronic modelling tools are being developed by EDA partners in advance of silicon.

WHERE: Details of the new architecture will be disclosed at the ARM TechCon, Santa Clara, US (Tuesday 29th – Thursday 31st October 2013)

WHEN: The ARMv8-R architecture specification will be available to partners under license.  ARM processors which implement the new architecture are in development and details of these will be disclosed at a later date

FURTHER INFORMATION: A white paper containing details of the new architecture can be found here: www.arm.com/files/pdf/ARMv8R__Architecture_Oct13.pdf
