Automotive Technology Platform Developed for Linux-Based Systems

The new Mentor Graphicsâ Embedded Automotive Technology Platform (ATP) for Linux-based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system development is now available and aimed at automotive tier-one suppliers for better graphics and optimized functionality. Itâs the latest innovation to aid in the development of more responsive user interfaces.

Compliant with Yocto Project 1.5 and GENIVI 5.0, ATP adds Mentorâs Embedded Hypervisor for greater functionality, device connectivity, and the integration of emerging system-on-chip (SoC) architectures. Both the Yocto Project and GENIVI serve as open-source collaboration projects that will standardize embedded projects within IVI systems. GENIVI 5.0 compliance includes Freescale i.MX6, Renesas R-CAR H1, and Texas Instruments OMAP 5âscalable processors based on the ARM Cortex-A9 (Freescale and Renaases) and ARM Cortex-A15 (TI) architectures.
