This combination of the R-Car (H3/M3/M3N) system-on-chip (SoC), power management IC (PMIC), and programmable clock generator allows for a versatile solution. They enable scalable cockpit and infotainment solutions that support high image quality, multiple video display outputs, and a wide variety of memory interfaces all in one design.

System Benefits:

  • A versatile system that enables scalable cockpit and infotainment solutions that support high image quality, multiple video display outputs, and a wide variety of memory interfaces.
  • Flexible clock generators can generate any clock frequency from 1MHz to 350MHz and allow a single device to replace several discrete clock circuits, saving BOM cost and reducing PCB area.
  • A flexible power supply can support a wide range of multicore SoCs and integrate full power rail management with multiple sleep modes for an optimized solution.
  • Reduces R&D cost and development time using PMICs verified for R-Car SoCs.




  • Instrument clusters
  • In-vehicle infotainment (IVI)
  • Cockpit controllers
  • Driver monitoring systems (DMS)
  • Surround view monitors

Integrated Automotive Cockpits

Save cost and design effort in functional safety with Renesas scalable R-Car roadmap, providing a robust freedom of interference between the Cluster and Android system.

Video Transcript

My name is Guido Hilker, I'm from Renesas Electronics and today I talk about integrated cockpits.

The challenge of integrated cockpit is to run cluster, navigation and center stack on one ECU. Some OEMs have already started such integration with the target to save cost and still offer an attractive solution with a nice look and feel.

The demo is running on R-Car M3N and is showing a low cost integrated cockpit solution. In the middle, an Android system is running, showing a navigation application which could be also a smartphone replication. In parallel, the embedded real-time CPU, which is separated by system architecture, is drawing a full graphics cluster using the 2D drawing engine.

For integrated cockpit, Renesas offers a scalable R-Car product lineup. And also robust freedom of interference between the cluster system and the Android system is achieved by separation of hardware. And therefore the efforts for functional safety can be greatly reduced, which saves cost and effort. Finally, the real-time system will boot faster, offering an early availability of the cluster function, rearview camera or audio.
