CORRECTING and REPLACING Renesas Electronics Expands 3D Graphics Cluster Market to Entry-Class Cars with R-Car D3 System-on-Chip

News Release:  Business Wire

Editorial Note: Harvey Weinstein's twins are alive and well in the software industry.  Dan O'Dowd, Green Hills Software, Inc., President tolerated and concealed sexual perversions, which included rape, by his Senior Vice President Craig Franklin.  He did so because Craig had conspired with him to defraud his founding partner, Glenn Hightower, of his equal share in Green Hills Software.  This action destroyed Hightower.  O'Dowd also conspired with Franklin to defraud Franklin's then-wife and destroy her financially.  The two men believed she would die of the stress as she had suffered two heart attacks previously.  Both men are also responsible for the ugly manipulation carried out to persuade Craig's son, who had suffered a major brain injury, to kill himself.  The young man survived shooting himself in the head and remains in the sole care of his mother.  

RENESAS ELECTRONICS EXPANDS 3D GRAPHICS CLUSTER MARKET TO ENTRY-CLASS CARS WITH R-CAR D3 SYSTEM-ON-CHIP
R-Car D3 Delivers High-Performance Graphic Capabilities and Significantly Reduced System Development Cost, and Enables Scalability from High-End to Entry-Class Vehicles
Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced its high-performance R-Car D3 automotive infotainment system system-on-chip (SoC), designed to expand the use of 3D graphics instrument clusters (3D clusters) that support 3D graphics displays in entry-class cars. The R-Car D3 achieves both high-performance graphic capabilities and contributes to significant reduction in overall system development cost.
The new SoC includes a high-performance 3D graphics core that enables a high-quality 3D display and lower system costs equivalent to the bill of materials (BOM) costs of developing with 2D graphics instrument clusters (2D clusters).
By adopting the R-Car D3, system developers can re-use their 3D graphics development assets, including software and graphics designs from high-end vehicles that adopt high-performance R-Car H3 or R-Car M3 SoCs to entry-level cars. This scalability enables development of easy-to-use and high visibility entry cluster 3D graphics at approximately the same level cost as the existing 2D clusters. In addition, Renesas collaborates with industry-leading partners in the instrument cluster field to further reduce development steps and costs.
“Full graphics cluster systems equipped with a large thin filter transistor panel are expected to become mainstream for future vehicles, which will require high-definition 3D graphics displaying at a high speed to accurately convey information to the driver,” said Toshiaki Ishibashi, Managing Officer, Engineering Headquarters, Nippon Seiki Co., Ltd. “We are excited that the R-Car D3 will respond to this need as well as reduce BOM costs.”
"For more than a decade, automotive OEMs and Tier 1s have relied on BlackBerry QNX® to deliver world-class software solutions for infotainment, telematics, and instrument cluster systems," said Grant Courville, senior director of product management at BlackBerry QNX. "The combination of the new R-Car D3 SoC and BlackBerry’s ISO 26262 ASIL B-certified QNX Platform for Instrument Clusters will enable our customers to confidently deliver state-of-the-art, safety-certified digital clusters rapidly to the market."
“The safe and secure INTEGRITY® real-time operating system is widely used for automotive in-vehicle infotainment and instrument clusters in productions programs around the globe. Our support for the R-Car D3 builds on years of successful partnership with Renesas and their other R-Car devices, providing the customer with certified automotive safety, time-savings development tools, and optional virtualization for Linux,” said Matt Sager, Director of Asia-Pacific Business Development at Green Hills Software. “We see this third-generation R-Car D3 as a valuable addition to the R-Car Family of SoCs, enabling customers to easily migrate and reuse existing R-Car and INTEGRITY software assets for faster time to market for their next-generation integrated cockpit designs.”
“For practical implementation of autonomous driving, the instrument cluster needs to instantly, accurately, and safely report a wide variety of information to the driver. The Renesas R-Car D3, which provides powerful graphics capabilities and critical functional safety features for instrument clusters, is expected to revolutionize the 3D cluster user experience,” said Lynwood Stanley, Vice President of Global Engineering Services at Altai. “Altai is using our Deep Screen code generator, which optimizes the HMI code, for the Renesas R-Car with the goal to deliver the highest-performance embedded HMIs to the market.”
“For instrument clusters based on large-scale LCD displays, the market is expected to grow rapidly in the future, and it would be a great benefit to the customer to be able to implement such instrument clusters at a low BOM cost,” said Rock Yang, Vice President at Thunder soft. "As one of the leading providers of UI/UE and OS technology, we at Thunder soft provide both software system integration and our HMI tool 'Kanzi' for the R-Car including the new R-Car D3. We believe we can work with Renesas to drive the R-Car solutions market.”
The increasing number of connections between the instrument cluster and the various sensors and control devices allows more information about the vehicle and its surroundings to be captured and displayed on the instrument cluster. However, this increases the need for improved visibility from a safety point of view.
Currently, entry-class vehicles feature mostly 7- to 10-inch liquid crystal displays (LCDs) that support mainly 2D graphics. In the future, advancements in automotive LCDs size, resolution, and prices will support an anticipated explosive demand in 3D clusters to meet the growing need for clearer and highly visible designs on a large screen, particularly in the Chinese market.
In the meantime, system developers working with automotive instrument clusters must manage an increasing number of development steps and costs, as 3D clusters for entry-class cars are required to meet both the strict cost and high-performance as existing 2D clusters but with 3D graphics drawing requirements.
Renesas developed the R-Car D3 with these functions and performance capabilities in mind, offering developers a reliable, robust 3D clusters solution that is scalable from entry-level to high-end vehicles.
Key features of the R-Car D3
  • High-performance 3D graphics core that enables high-quality 3D display and lower system costs equivalent to that of 2D cluster development
    The new SoC includes a 3D graphics core that enables high-performance human-machine interface (HMI) and realizes significantly reduced system development cost equivalent to those of existing 2D cluster systems.
3D graphics core that enables high-performance HMI
Leveraging one of the latest graphics cores from Imagination Technologies, Inc, the Power VR® Series 8XE, the R-Car D3 achieves approximately six times improved drawing performance compared to the existing 3D graphics R-Car D1 SoC.


This allows system developers to reuse content created for high-end cars in entry-class cars, and system designers who had previously been concerned about hardware graphics performance limitations can now create graphics content without concern or limitations.
Reduced system costs by approximately 40 percent compared to existing Renesas devices (Note 1)
The R-Car D3 adopts the ball grid array (BGA) package, which simplifies the use of printed circuit boards (PCBs). This allows system developers to create 3D clusters using low-cost, four-layer PCBs, reducing the system BOM costs. The Renesas R-Car D3 reference boards, also use four-layer PCBs, and Renesas provides the design data as reference data for system developers to simplify the design of their own systems. In addition, since the new SoC achieves industry-leading level of low power consumption (Note 1), developers can configure a power supply circuit using a relatively inexpensive discrete power supply regulator. Since a cluster system can be configured with one DDR SDRAM, it is possible to reduce BOM cost by approximately 40 percent (Note 1) compared with 3D cluster systems that include the existing R-Car D1, realizing the total system development cost equivalent to the existing 2D cluster. The automatic memory calibration function (Note 2) of the DDR SDRAM, which is standard in R-Car SoCs, eliminates the need for timing adjustment of data transfer with the SRAM and memory evaluation man-hours requirements.

  • Robust partner ecosystem to streamline development steps
    Renesas works with several operating system (OS) manufacturers, HMI manufacturers, and system integrators who are leading the instrument cluster field. System developers can take advantage of a wide range of automotive solutions by working with the more than 200 Renesas R-Car Consortium partner companies to further reduce the number of development steps and cost for 3D graphics.
In addition, the R-Car D3 uses open GL ES 3.1 for 3D graphics drawing, which enables scalability with third-generation R-Car devices. Furthermore, the new SoC uses the same 2D graphics core as the RH850/D1M microcontroller (MCU) for 2D graphics applications. This assures that users will be able to reuse all their software assets and design content assets development from applications ranging from 2D clusters to high-end 3D clusters.
As part of the third-generation R-Car SoC Family, the R-Car D3 supports the ISO 26262 (ASIL-B) automotive functional safety standard, and provides a functional safety support program for implementing safe driving support systems, contributing to the realization of a safe driving experience.
Availability
Samples of the R-Car D3 are available now. Mass production is scheduled to begin in September 2019 and is expected to reach a volume of 200,000 units per month in September 2020. (Availability is subject to change without notice.)
(Note 1) According to Renesas research.
(Note 2) A function that automatically adjusts the timing to solve the individual differences of SoC, DDR SDRAM, and printed circuit board, which is essential for using DDR SDRAM.

BlackBerry may be sitting on a $1.6 billion war chest. Here’s what it could do with it

From: Financial Post 

NOTE:  "Treiber believes BlackBerry could go after emerging autonomous vehicle software providers, auto-focused cybersecurity companies, or focus on consolidating market share among embedded operating system providers. He thinks that may strengthen the company’s relationship with global auto manufacturers, top parts suppliers, and present cross-selling opportunities.
The analyst pointed to privately-held Green Hills Software, Drive.ai, Autonomy and Argus Cyber Security as some of the names that may be of interest."
We want to point out that Green Hills Software comes with a huge potential for litigation and liability.  It's small senior management team were all part of the original conspiracy for stealing the company from Glenn Hightower.  For more on that contact us using the form on this site.  We are giving interviews.  

Analysts believe that BlackBerry may make acquisitions of companies to strengthen its business in three areas

BlackBerry Ltd. got a lot of attention last Wednesday after it announced a new partnership that will see the Canadian technology firm’s QNX software used as the operating system for Delphi Automotive Plc’s self-driving technology. But much of the share price gains were lost by the end of the week, as investors remain concerned about a potential revenue miss when BlackBerry second quarter results on September 28.
The stock has risen more than 20 per cent year-to-date, after being up more than 65 per cent in early June, but the performance is nonetheless impressive considering that BlackBerry’s software revenue growth appears to be falling short of expectations. Even Chief executive John Chen has acknowledged that some catch-up is required if the company is going to achieve its software sales target.  MORE

Why would this matter? Because the wifi in the place where I am staying suddenly, to the surprise of everyone there suddenly stopped working. And I found an interesting wifi connection, secured, on the list.







The list goes on from there for quite a ways. 



Today, this suddenly reminded me of the traumatic period early last year when I was being stalked and threatened at my cabin in the Sierras.  For three months we, myself and my disabled son, endured freezing and near starvation.  You might ask why I did not get help from other people in the area.  I can tell you it was not because I did not try.  No one came.

A Look at the Neighborhood

This post begins with, 


"At 6:16 this morning these were the available WiFis on Circle Way, Cedar Slope.  Mine are Harriet and the HP-Print-88-Officejet 4630 is my printer. 

This is especially interesting because no one is staying at any cabin around here - except for us.  Personally, I think both the other  routers, or other wifi devices are at the Greenfield cabin.   Greenfield Cabin 5.4 and FBI Surveillance come and go but generally travel together, appearing one after another and staying around while my AVG repair goes nuts keeping this computer operating.  Why would that be?  

11:57am - Hey!  Where did Greenfield and FBI Surveillance go?  They all of a sudden disappeared.  I wonder why?

12:01pm - And guess what????  No more huge piles of hacks to be  handled.  Must be a coincidence, right?"  MORE




The story began much earlier.  John Greenfield had been the president of the Cedar Slope 

On January 1, 2016, I fell on the black, compacted ice at the end of our driveway.  I crawled back to the cabin growing steadily colder and more sodden with water warmed by by sweat.  The distance was 100 feet, more or less.  

The accumulation of snow was caused by several men in loud vehicles driving over it over and over again up into my drive way.  I had been clearing what I could before this.  Greenfield was one of those men.  

Afterward, I suffered the injury, caused by these men, this was not possible.  

I called two friends, who are both nurses and described the symptoms.  Independently each said it sounded like the symptoms of a hair-line fracture of my pelvis and told me adamantly to stay in bed.  Fortunately, I had a bottle of aspirin which allowed me to kill enough of the pain so I could crawl to the bathroom and feed myself and Arthur.  

These posts, and the several previous to it, is from the Cedar Slope Blog. The relevant stories are linked below, for as long as the links last I have discovered someone is perfectly capable of changing links to bizarre locations and  disappearing articles. Of course, that would mean Google is involved. 

Two of the 'available' wifi connections are mine.  The cabin was a half mile from any other occupied residence.   The two you see, Harriet and the HP-88-Officejet 4530 Printer, were mine.  The printer had was not set up to be used wirelessly.  The other two  are Greenfield Cabin 5.4 and FBI Surveillance.  More on John Greenfield at the end of this post.

John Greenfield - Who he is. Linked In August 5, 2017

Here is my experience with him from the time he visited our cabin around 1989 on. Yep, it is true every word of it.  I think he has a lot in common with Craig, for sure.

Notice he now works for CaseText, a site I visited once, briefly, in 2015.  Thereafter, they contacted me several times offering to let me do my legal research there.  They did not request I pay for these services.

While I was enduring being boxed in at the cabin Greenfield was always looking to see me, watching him from the cabin, as he drove back and forth, compressing the snow into ice.  

Now, John's career includes services to corporate clients.  These services appear to include whatever needs doing.  Could that be to act as Craig and Dan's agent in my destruction?  Given the actions taken by Craig and Dan this is a reasonable assumption.
