The R-Car E1 automotive system-on-chip (SoC) from Renesas Electronics and Renesas Mobile provides low power consumption and high system integration targeting the cost-sensitive markets of car navigation and multimedia systems, including high-end car radios. Renesas strengthens its position in entry navigation systems with this new member of the R-Car series of automotive SoCs. The R-Car E1 is powered with a single ARM Cortex-A9 32-bit RISC CPU core (enhanced with the NEON extension) running at 533 MHz, which achieves a maximum processing power of 1330 Dhrystone million instructions per second. The graphics processor unit is Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR SGX531 and processes up to 14M triangles/s and is capable of delivering up to 1.4 gigaflops for accelerated graphics.
