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. Itâ€™s 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 Mentorâ€™s 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 5â€”scalable processors based on the ARM Cortex-A9 (Freescale and Renaases) and ARM Cortex-A15 (TI) architectures.
