Synopsys and Elektrobit Announce Availability of EB tresos Classic AUTOSAR Software for ARC Functional Safety Processor IP
September 03, 2020
Elektrobit is the First Automotive Software Company to Collaborate with Synopsys on Providing Software for Synopsys ARC Functional Safety Processors Used in Automotive ECUs.
Synopsys and Elektrobit (EB) announced availability of EB tresos Classic AUTOSAR software for Synopsys' ASIL-D compliant DesignWare ARC EM and ARC HS Functional Safety (FS) Processor IP.
This version of the EB tresos AUTOSAR software used with the ARC Functional Safety processors provides a hardware-software platform that makes it ideal for automotive semiconductor companies, OEMs, and Tier 1 suppliers to develop software applications based on the AUTOSAR standard. According to the company, the combined solution speeds up time-to-market for the complex automotive electronic control units (ECUs) required for applications such as ADAS, infotainment, gateways, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems used in modern vehicles.
The ARC Functional Safety processors support ASIL B and ASIL D safety levels for suitable safety-critical automotive system on chip (SoC) development and accelerate ISO 26262 qualification. The complete portfolio includes the ARC EM22FS, HS4xFS, EV7xFS, and VPX5FS safety processors with integrated hardware safety features to detect system errors. The DesignWare ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for Safety (EM22FS, HS4xFS) helps software developers accelerate the development of ISO 26262-compliant code.
To accelerate early software development, Elektrobit supplies Classic AUTOSAR to the ARC EM Software Development Platform and the ARC HS4x/4xD Development Kit. A Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL), which abstracts the hardware devices, is available for each platform, allowing engineers to begin software development. The ARC Functional Safety processor IP is developed based on the ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System (QMS) for Synopsys DesignWare IP supporting additional automotive quality requirements.
