Consolidating multiple automotive systems into one optimized system can help device manufacturers reduce bill of materials (BOM) costs and meet stringent power consumption and weight requirements in the automotive world—especially when system complexity grows exponentially.
Original equipment manufactureres (OEMs) and suppliers can reduce cost, power, and complexity by lowering the number of electronic control units (ECUs) in the vehicle. This can be achieved through utilizing the power of multi-core processors, which promise increased performance and reduced power consumption. But adapting software developed for single processors to run on multi-core processors can be a daunting task. Wind River® offers solutions that can assist you in efficient adoption of multi-core technology and allow you to retain future flexibility.
