One of the several challenges in the automotive cockpit software is to reduce costs and at the same time increase functionality and user experience. This is achievable only through higher integration of functions & features and a shorter time to market. With higher integration of the different functions on the cockpit ECUs more challenges arise, such as ensuring the same level of software safety & reliability, isolation of domains, reliable communication between domains and reducing the cybersecurity attack risk. Therefore the transformation in the car E/E architectures with visible trends towards a centralization of the ECU systems is the offering where Mentor Automotive Business Unit (ABU) bunches his experiences and starts with the next step to a Cockpit Compute Consolidation – Mentor´s Vehicle Cockpit Consolidation Solutions (VCO2S).

Learn more in the Webinar about the Mentor VCO2S offering – from a base version up to a customized unique version with an infrastructure for an integrated In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and Instrument Cluster development within the scope of a technical-functional safety concept, safety libraries (ASIL-B), safety features, security features and architectures for shared graphics and audio between ASIL and QM domains.

Get a deep dive into the VCO2S Base offering with an overview of:

  • Feature setup
  • Software architecture
  • Functional Safety architecture
  • Aspects on the Cybersecurity and the Security Analysis / Testing
  • Communication Framework & Audio Integration & Graphics Sharing
