Renesas: “Renesas has been offering ARM-based SoC technology to the Automotive Information System market for several generations and in multiple products, ” said by Masahiro Suzuki, vice president and chief of automotive information system business division at Renesas Electronics Corporation. “We believe safety features that enable ADAS and automotive cockpit systems are becoming an essential element and functional safety is engrained in the nature of Renesas. We are expanding our strategic partnership with ARM to achieve a safer, more secure and comfortable driving environment powered by Renesas automotive products. ”
Xilinx: “Xilinx is already in full automotive OEM production and is a leader in enabling flexible and scalable ADAS camera systems with our 28nm Zynq-7000 SoCs with dual-core Cortex-A9,” said Nick DiFiore, director of the automotive segment at Xilinx. “As ADAS performance and functional safety requirements increase, Xilinx will remain on the leading edge with our Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC architecture which integrates ARM Cortex-A53 cores, Cortex-R5 cores, and programmable logic on a single chip. ARM’s announcement and investment in functional safety is very welcome as we work closely with our automotive customers at the silicon and system level to clear the hurdles associated with the ISO-26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Levels.”
YOGITECH: “We are seeing multiple inquiries with increasing emphasis and urgency on functional safety compliance and are happy to extend our offer of certified Software Test Libraries (fRSTL) to ARM Cortex-A processors,” said Silvano Motto, CEO of YOGITECH. “This will enable customers to combine the ARM Safety Package with YOGITECH SW Test Libraries to cover all aspects of ISO26262 standard from systematic to HW random failures.”
Notes to Editors
ARM in Automotive
In early 2015, ARM announced that safety documentation and support was available for Cortex-R5. The Cortex-R5 is an advanced and cost-effective real-time processor for embedded applications, and it has already been widely adopted by silicon vendors to develop automotive applications. ARM will expand its safety support for the Cortex-M7, ARM’s highest performance Cortex-M processor and Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processors that are widely used in microcontroller applications later this year.
ARM is at the heart of the world's most advanced digital products. Our technology enables the development of new markets and transformation of industries and society, invisibly creating opportunity for a globally connected population. We design scalable, energy-efficient processors and related technologies to deliver intelligence wherever computing happens, ranging from sensors to servers, including smartphones, tablets, digital TVs, enterprise infrastructure and the Internet of Things.
Our innovative technology is licensed by ARM Partners who have shipped more than 60 billion System on Chip (SoCs) containing our intellectual property. Together with our Connected Community, we are breaking down barriers to innovation for developers, designers and engineers, ensuring a fast, reliable route to market for leading electronics companies.
