Renesas Electronics launches R-Car Gen3e for in-vehicle infotainment, smart cockpit, and digital instrument panel systems, with a 20% increase in CPU speed
The new SoC brings 2GHz speed, higher application integration, and stronger functional safety to a wide range of applications from entry to mid-range, as well as excellent scalability and software reuse of R-Car Gen3
Tokyo, Japan, July 20, 2021-Renesas Electronics Group (TSE: 6723), a global semiconductor solutions provider, today announced that the popular R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) has added a new product series-R-Car Gen3e. The new SoC product family has six new products, which are integrated cockpit domain controllers, in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI), digital instrument panels, driver monitoring systems, and LED matrix lights, etc., which require high-quality graphics rendering from entry to mid-range vehicles Application to build a scalable lineup.
The new product expands the widely acclaimed R-Car Gen3 series SoC product line, and the CPU performance is increased to 50k DMIPS and 2GHz speed, helping automakers meet the ever-increasing user experience, network security, and functional safety requirements.
Renesas Electronics also simultaneously launched a "successful product portfolio" solution based on R-Car Gen3e products to shorten development time and reduce bill of materials (BOM) costs. Customers can combine R-Car Gen3e products with Renesas’ high-precision clock ICs and power management products.
Naoki Yoshida, Vice President of Renesas Electronics’ Automotive Digital Product Marketing Division, said: “With the increasing popularity of augmented reality navigation systems and AI-based digital care assistants, automakers and Tier 1 suppliers need to be The rapidly growing demand for high-resolution displays and high-performance chips is balanced with the soaring BOM cost and longer development time. The new R-Car Gen3e and reference solutions build a seamless and cost-effective migration path. It is fully compatible with the existing R-Car Gen3 SoC and is easy to integrate, allowing customers to more easily bring their automotive-grade applications to the market."
R-Car Gen3e SoC: Key features of R-Car D3e, R-Car E3e, R-Car M3Ne, R-Car M3e, R-Car H3Ne, and R-Car H3e
Higher CPU performance-the frequency of R-Car M3Ne, R-Car M3e, and R-Car H3e products can reach up to 2GHz
On-chip real-time Arm® Cortex® R7 CPU eliminates the need for external vehicle controllers to be paired with Renesas PMICs, thereby reducing overall BOM costs
Reduce development time with reference solutions for quick start, HMI, and functional safety
Configure the latest version of the board support kit for Linux and Android operating systems
R-Car Gen3e Reference Solution
Pre-integrated software enables higher application integration, such as 2D/3D dashboard HMI, welcome animation, rearview camera, and surround-view applications, etc.
VirTIO technology allows developers to easily add reference solutions to current applications without changing existing Linux or Android applications
Support ASIL-B system safety requirements, suitable for signal monitoring and camera freeze detection, and real hardware separation in non-virtualized cockpits
The R-Car Consortium (RCC) includes Renesas’ system integrators, middleware/application developers, operating system and tool suppliers, and other partners to provide innovative solutions for the connected car, ADAS, and gateway markets, effectively shortening customer development And the time the product goes to market.
