Using Virtual Prototypes to Accelerate Software Development for Renesas R-Car SoC Platform


The software complexity of automated driving/ADAS and connected vehicle applications is growing drastically. Along with this complexity comes strict safety and security requirements and shrinking development cycles. The virtual prototype for the next-generation Renesas R-Car SoC platform provides the needed productivity boost to enable a “shift-left” in project development by enabling pre-silicon software development, front loading of test infrastructure, and initial OS porting and bring-up of external connectivity.

Development and testing of complex software stacks running on the application processors and real-time CPUs in the R-Car SoCs are in the critical path for deployment at automotive Tier 1 and OEM companies. This 30-minute Webinar provides an overview on the usage and benefits of virtual prototypes for automotive embedded software development on the Renesas R-Car SoC platform. It examines the unique value that virtual prototypes provide to the automotive supply chain for pre- and post-silicon software development.

A Q&A follows the technical presentation.
