Advanced semiconductor solutions supplier Renesas Electronics has added a new family to its series of R-Car system-on-chips (SoCs) with the R-Car Gen3e.
Featuring six new members, the R-Car Gen3e series of SoCs is said to offer a scalable line-up for entry- to mid-range automotive applications that require high-quality graphics rendering, such as integrated cockpit domain controllers, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), digital instrument clusters, driver monitoring systems, and LED matrix light.
The new devices extend the R-Car Gen3 SoC products with increased CPU performance up to 50k DMIPS and 2GHz speeds to help car makers navigate demands for continuous user experience, security and safety improvements. Customers can also combine the R-Car Gen3e devices with Renesas’s high-accuracy timing ICs, power management products.
“With the growing popularity of applications such as augmented reality navigation and AI-based digital automotive assistants, OEMs and Tier 1s need to balance the skyrocketing demand for larger, higher resolution displays and high-performance chips with rising BOM costs and longer development times,” said Naoki Yoshida, VP automotive digital products at Renesas.
“The new R-Car Gen3e devices and reference solutions offer a seamless and cost-effective migration path, providing full compatibility and easy integration with Renesas’s current R-Car Gen3 SoCs to make it quicker and easier for customers to bring their automotive-grade applications to market.”
