Overview

Description

The latest generation of vehicles are using the new electrical/electronic (E/E) architecture to connect vehicle computers with domain networks. These domains are managed by dedicated domain control units. This solution provides a reference design to develop domain control units by supporting a variety of physical networks and specialized power supply circuits for domain control, body, chassis, and gateway applications.

System Benefits

  • High performance CPUs integrated on the RH850/U2A to manage communication in the domain and to other engine control units (ECUs)
  • Supports a variety of physical network interfaces like Gbit Ethernet, high-speed serial interface, 16ch CAN-FD/24ch LIN/UART, FlexRay, SENT, etc.
  • Buck regulators and LDOs enabling a compact, low-noise design and high efficiency, supporting a wide power supply range and high temperature operation
  • Applications and driver software shorten development time

Connected Gateway for Automotive

Discover Vehicle Computer 2, the complete evaluation platform, that enables quick prototyping with Renesas’ Digital and Analog chipsets and Cetitec software stack.

Transcript

My name is Adam Korbel. I work for Renesas Electronics for the Automotive Technical Customer Engagement Division, Connected Gateway Section.

To set the background, the car makers’ vision is to drive the evolution from the conventional car to the connected car. And the connected car is exactly one of the automotive megatrends our chipset is addressing. So the challenge is the exponential growth of data bandwidth together with the service-oriented architecture.

We have developed this evaluation platform Vehicle Computer 2 together with our partner CETITEC. This platform contains a complete Renesas chipset, including our RH850/F1K MCU, our R-Car SoC H3 up to the performance level of 40k DMIPS, but moreover it contains analog chips like the high speed switch, the timing IC and the power management IC.

So the box can be used for quick prototyping, evaluation, data logging. It offers the specific automotive communication interfaces like CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay, MOST, PCIe and Ethernet. It provides various IEEE 802.1 Ethernet TSN protocols to ensure real-time communication.

We are the first semiconductor supplier who offers such a complete evaluation platform, complete with the CETITEC software communication stack. So the Vehicle Computer 2 Platform offers the best in class ratio of high computing performance and low power consumption.
