As the car industry moves from being mechanical towards the next generation of autonomous vehicles, new autonomous and ADAS technologies are being developed at a blistering pace. Renesas is claiming to achieve improved development efficiency and faster time-to-market for ADAS applications with its new upgraded e2 studio IDE. In the wearables arena, ST has developed a compact contactless module for easy and secure payment using wearables like wristbands or fashionwear like watches or jewelry. ST is also providing an open development environment for prototyping advanced Smart Driving applications, including vehicle connectivity to back-end servers, road infrastructure, and other vehicles.
Integrated Software Development Environment for ADAS and Automated Driving
Renesas expands its e² studio integrated software development environment for ADAS for R-Car V3M with various features to boost the performance of ADAS and automated driving applications. With the new e2 studio, Renesas helps its customers to achieve improved development efficiency and faster time-to-market. The firm plans to offer the updated IDE in Q1. Read more.
Boost Your Contactless Payment Designs With All-in-one Module
ST has launched a new ‘ST53G System-in-Package’ all-in-one module for easy and secure contactless transactions using wristbands or fashionwear like watches or jewelry. The module, says ST, overcomes the space and cost barriers by combining a miniaturized and enhanced NFC radio with a secure banking chip in one compact 4mm x 4mm module. The ST53G meets all relevant card-industry standards, including EMVCo compliance, ISO/IEC-14443 NFC card emulation, and MIFARE ticketing specifications. Read more.
Open Development Platform for Secure Car-Connectivity Applications
The Modular Telematics Platform (MTP) from STMicroelectronics provides an open development environment for prototyping advanced Smart Driving applications, including vehicle connectivity to back-end servers, road infrastructure, and other vehicles. The MTP consists of a central processing module utilizing the firm’s latest Telemaco3P secure automotive-telematics processor and a comprehensive set of automotive-connectivity devices to improve development flexibility and extensibility. The MTP can be used for advanced automotive telematics use cases including remote diagnostics and secure Electronic-Control-Unit (ECU) Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) updating. For these use cases, it has extension connectors for V2X and precise positioning modules, too. Read more.
