Renesas ships R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) with  Automotive Grade Linux

Wednesday, August 09, 2017

Renesas has started volume shipment of its first R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) incorporating  Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)-based software. AGL is a cross-industry effort to develop a fully open software stack for the connected car.

Renesas considers AGL as an essential step to expand the base of software developers. The Renesas R-Car Starter Kit and AGL-based software is accelerating the development of automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) applications and connected cars.

The AGL Collaborative Project promotes open source software development aimed at helping more system manufacturers to develop automotive applications, even developers who are not accustomed to embedded application software development, which will contribute to accelerating IVI deployments.

Renesas’ first R-Car SoC incorporating AGL platform-based software has started volume shipment for Toyota’s new 2018 Camry which is scheduled to debut late this summer in the U.S. and will be Toyota’s first car model to run Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) software for its infotainment system.

“Toyota and Renesas have promoted AGL activities together from the very start. By adopting Renesas’ R-Car SoC for our infotainment system of the new 2018 Toyota Camry, we managed to promote system developments in cooperation with both Renesas and AGL,” says Toyota’s  Kenichi Murata.
