As key embedded partners, Altia and Renesas are continually collaborating to provide production-ready embedded graphics solutions for the fast-evolving automotive market. This encompasses the R-Car series of processors including the full range of D, E, M and H series. The latest results of our partnership will be on display this October 16-17 in Tokyo at the Renesas R-Car Consortium Forum.
Connected conversations start here.
Forbes recently featured Mike Juran, Altia CEO, in an interview about autonomous vehicles and the role automotive GUIs will play for passengers.
The article addresses the current challenges for automotive GUIs and automotive OEMs — over-crowded displays and intensifying competition from Silicon Valley for this precious in-car real estate.
Telechips SoCs and Altia HMI Development Software Chosen for Production Automotive Clusters
Altia announces code generation support for the Telechips TCC803x (Dolphin+) and TCC897x using Altia HMI development tools and the Linux operating system. Due to the incredible code efficiency of the Altia DeepScreen target for the Telechips chip, this combined solution has been selected for instrument cluster production. The inaugural cluster program will include support for multiple themes, advanced plotting, 3D and multiple languages.
As part of their annual research about best places to live, surveyors from U.S. News asked people from all over the country where they would live if given the choice. Out of the 125 largest metro regions in the country, Colorado Springs came out on top — ranking above cities including Austin (TX), Seattle (WA), Honolulu (HI) and Denver (CO).
Altia Announces New Release of HMI Development Software with New 3D Features, On-Target FPS Indicator, Support for Emojis and More
Today, Altia announces the release of Altia Design 12.1, which includes new features and powerful improvements for developing and deploying embedded displays for production automotive, medical, consumer and industrial devices.
What is new in Altia Design 12.1?
This past weekend, Colorado Springs — home of Altia’s headquarters — hosted the 96th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This is an annual invitational automobile and motorcycle hill climb to the summit of Pikes Peak that is held on the last Sunday in June.
The race course is a 12.42 mile (19.99 km) public toll-road with 156 total turns. The total course climb is 4,720 ft. (1,440 m.) — from the 9,390 ft. (2,862 m.) start line at the Mile 7 marker on the Pikes Peak Highway all the way to the 14,115 ft. (4,300 m) finish line at the mountain’s summit.
Altia is proud to partner with Garz & Fricke by providing Professional Engineering Services for their customers to deliver the highest quality embedded GUIs to market.
They will be showcasing Altia running on their hardware at ESC Boston in Booth #1177 from April 18-19 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Take a look at Altia demo running on Garz & Fricke hardware in this video — and be sure to stop by the booth to experience this demo live!
Altia Offers Code Generation Support for Renesas R-Car D3 Running Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS and Green Hills INTEGRITY Multivisor
The Altia 3D Cluster Running Green Hills on Renesas R-Car D3 on Display at Embedded World 2018
Altia announces code generation support for the Renesas R-Car D3 using Altia HMI development software and safety certified Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS) with INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization solution. This combination of technologies was featured at CES 2018 and will be on display at the upcoming Embedded World 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany.
The Renesas R-Car D3 system-on-chip delivers high performance and graphics capabilities with its powerful ARM® Cortex®-A53 core and 3D GPU. The R-Car D3 also offers significantly reduced system development cost – and is priced to align with the BOM cost of a traditional 2D instrument cluster.
As you make your way to the North Plaza of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CES, be sure to stop by to see Renesas Electronics America in Booth 18.
