New Code Generation Target Running Altia and QNX Neutrino Selected for Automotive Instrument Cluster Production Program
Altia announces new DeepScreen code generation support for the NXP i.MX 6 family of processors utilizing OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 pipelines to maximize Graphical User Interface (GUI) performance. This new target, running on BlackBerry’s QNX Neutrino® Realtime OS, has been selected to power a 10” virtual instrument cluster program.
This code generation target was designed on the i.MX 6 DualPlus family of processors, which not only delivers dramatic graphics and memory performance enhancements, but are also pin-compatible with a broad range of i.MX 6 processors. The i.MX 6 DualPlus includes a dual-core ARM® Cortex®-A9 platform running 800 MHz with 1 MB of L2 cache, 512 MB of RAM – and, of course, the 2D and 3D pipelines already mentioned. This capability, along with other connectivity features, make i.MX6 an ideal multicore platform for leading-edge multimedia applications which require higher graphics performance.
