Altia announces code generation support for its optimized software-rendered pipeline for Renesas RH850/D1L1. This target utilizes the OSEK real-time operating system, a mature automotive standard which offers configurable and scalable architecture.
The Renesas RH850/D1x series was designed to address growing integrated automotive and ground vehicle dashboard markets – and is suited for car instrument clusters, head-up displays (HUDs), and other display applications. The D1L1 features an RH850 CPU core running at 120 MHz – providing 256 KB of RAM and 2 MB of Flash.
Altia DeepScreen target development was done using a Renesas D1L1 board to drive a QVGA 4 bit per pixel grayscale display. The resulting target requires no dynamic memory at all yet includes advanced support for multiple languages such as Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Cyrillic and Latin. This capability makes Altia’s target for Renesas D1L1 a perfect candidate for automotive production programs focused on delivering cost-effective driver information technology.
