Overview

Description

The R-Car H3Ne is a scale down of H3e, with similar positioning. It has more narrow data throughput and some peripherals optimized out. Its applications are broad, including for example In-Vehicle Infotainment systems and Integrated Cockpit. It is compliant with the ISO 26262 (ASIL-B) functionality safety standard for automotive and has enhanced security functions.

Features

  • Compliant with ISO 26262 (ASIL-B) functionality safety standard for automotive
  • System-on-chip (SoC) for automotive that enables the highest level of performance
  • Compatibility with previous products enables use of existing ecosystem and access to over 180 R-Car Consortium partners

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.
