Green Hills Software and Qualcomm Technologies team up to support global automakers and Tier-1 suppliers with purpose-built, scalable solutions, designed to support a safe, secure consolidation of Android and Linux-based infotainment processing with critical ASIL-certified vehicle services into a single multicore-based electronic control unit (ECU). As a part of the relationship, Green Hills is working with Qualcomm Technologies to feature the Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS), INTEGRITY Multivisor secure virtualization, and integrated MULTI® ASIL D-qualified software development environment as part of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms.
Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS and Multivisor virtualization solutions are the certified software foundation that safely and securely combine open-source Linux and Android infotainment environments with critical vehicle functions. These functions include vehicle gateways, instrument clusters, telltales, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and heads-up displays (HUD), which in many cases, require adherence and certification to the ISO 26262 automotive safety standards.
The Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms are the third-generation automotive platforms from Qualcomm Technologies. Designed to support future intelligent automotive cockpits to provide rich intuitive user experiences and meet stringent automotive industry standards, the third-generation Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms are engineered with immersive graphics, multimedia, computer vision and artificial intelligence capabilities and feature truly heterogeneous computing capabilities. These leverage the multicore Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine, Qualcomm Spectra Image Signal Processor (ISP), fourth generation Qualcomm Kryo Central Processing Units (CPU), Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, and sixth-generation Qualcomm Adreno Visual Subsystem. The Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms also feature the Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit (SPU), engineered to help protect personal and vehicle data, and Qualcomm Vision Enhanced Precise Positioning solution’s camera sensors and computer vision capabilities to enable differentiated use-cases on lane-level navigation and crowdsourcing of drive data for building high definition map layers.
The Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms also provide fully scalable architecture with differentiated experiences, leveraging the same software architecture and framework allowing consumers to enjoy a harmonized user experience independent of the vehicle tier while leveraging the same software framework.
