The R-Car ARM and SH-4A system-on-chip (SoC) series from Renesas Electronics America integrates advanced graphics, video, audio, network, and other peripheral functions with the Microsoft Windows Embedded Automotive 7 platform to deliver a flexible software platform with built-in entertainment and communication applications and a rich user interface framework. Automotive OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and aftermarket systems providers can use this platform to quickly create affordable, differentiated solutions that safely deliver driver assistance, traffic updates, navigation, weather, entertainment, and connectivity available through today’s rich web infrastructures. This combination of R-Car ARM or SH-4A SoC with the Microsoft Windows Embedded Automotive 7 operating system and Visual Studio IDE allows developers to focus on usability, benefits, price, performance, and quick time to market. Developers can select among hundreds of software components via Visual Studio, including the latest connectivity protocols such as Bluetooth 2.1, DLNA, POOM3, AVRCP, MAP to MAPI, the latest web standards, and Open GL ES 2.0.
