Devices solution designed for automotive telematics
Freescale Semiconductor and Wind River Systems Inc. announced the Wind River Platform for Automotive Devices Product Evaluation and demonstration kit, a pre-integrated solution for the automotive telematics/infotainment industry.
The software portion of the evaluation kit is comprised of the Platform for Automotive Devices software, Datalight's FlashFX Pro and Reliance flash file system, and Tilcon's graphics engine and library. This evaluation kit is said to provide with 25 per cent to 60 per cent of the code needed by automotive OEMs in developing infotainment devices.
The Wind River partner demonstration supports technologies such as OpenGL and 3D navigation. It offers standards support, automotive connectivity and partner technologies, as well as Wind River Workbench, an integrated development suite based on the Eclipse framework.
A Wind River platform for automotive devices product evaluation and integrated application demonstration from Tilcon and Datalight are included in the Freescale Media5200 development platform. Additional providers of technologies for automotive devices including Alt Software, 3DVU, 3Soft, Conversay, Gracenote and Encirq are working on support for the Freescale Media5200 and Wind River's Platform for Automotive Devices.
Freescale's Media5200 development system provides automotive Tier 1 manufacturers and OEMs with a platform for development of new multimedia and infotainment product applications and solutions. At the heart of the Media5200 development system is the MPC5200B, which contains a PowerPC core, a processor designed for in-vehicle infotainment and telematics systems.
