Green Hills Software has revealed the inclusion of virtualised, accelerated graphics support for Renesas R-Car H2 processors in its INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualisation solution. The latest update is aimed at next-generation graphics-intensive automotive applications including reconfigurable clusters, navigation systems, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and infotainment.

The INTEGRITY Multivisor enables increased flexibility of design choices and reduced cost through hardware consolidation and leverages work performed by Green Hills Software, Renesas and Imagination Technologies, enabling a powerful virtualisation solution that includes top-end graphics performance as well as strong isolation between safety-critical and general purpose workloads. For example, INTEGRITY Multivisor on Renesas R-Car H2 enables a real-time ADAS subsystem and a Yocto Linux-based cluster subsystem to execute concurrently, both environments taking advantage of the high-end graphics performance of the H2's integrated Imagination Technologies PowerVR G6400 GPU while ensuring Yocto cannot impact the ADAS functions executing natively on the INTEGRITY safety-certified microkernel.

Key capabilities of Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY Multivisor for Renesas R-Car platforms include support for Yocto Linux and other guest operating systems; high-performance, virtualised access to PowerVR G6400 GPU; ISO 26262 safety-certifiable run-time platform for ADAS and other critical systems; and virtualisation optimised for ARM Virtualisation Extensions included in R-Car H2's Cortex A15-based cores.

The INTEGRITY Multivisor for Renesas R-Car is available.
