(5) Development assets from the 2D graphics cluster RH850/D1x can be applied
The RH850/D1M Group of MCUs can implement both gauge control and 2D graphics display with a single chip and is already used in a wide range of cars. Since the R-Car D1 SoC includes the same 2D graphics system as that used in the RH850/D1M, system manufacturers can make use of these 2D graphics development assets, and develop 3D graphics systems for the R-Car D1. Also, if gauge control is required, system manufacturers can also combine the R-Car D1 with the RH850/D1M to implement such systems.
Samples of the R-Car D1 Series are available now. Mass production is scheduled to begin in March 2017 and is expected to reach a volume of 100,000 units per month by March 2018. (Availability is subject to change without notice.)
