Linux & FreeRTOS package for automotive panel/HUD/infotainment design

April 10, 2017 //By Graham Prophet
NXP Semiconductors has announced the MAC57D5xx Linux and FreeRTOS Software Enablement Package. Delivered by Mobiliya, this package will enable small and medium-sized developers to rapidly deliver solutions for automotive and industrial instrument cluster applications based on Linux and FreeRTOS software environments.

NXP chose Mobiliya as commercialisation partner for this Linux and FreeRTOS enablement. The MAC57D5xx MCU family, based on the ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-A processors, is a multi-core architecture solution for mid-range instrument clusters such as automotive infotainment systems, control and operator panels for automated production equipment, and medical device interfaces.

NXP has selected Mobiliya, a Texas based global software engineering company, as its software development partner for Linux and FreeRTOS on MAC57D5xx.

 

The MAC57D5xx MCU supports up to 2 WVGA resolution displays, one with in line head-up display (HUD) hardware warping. Graphics content is generated using a Vivante 2D GPU and the 2D animation and composition engine, to reduce memory footprint for content creation, integrated stepper motor drivers and a powerful I/O processor. The MAC57D5xx MCU integrates NXP’s latest SHE-compliant CSE2 engine and delivers support ISO26262 ASIL-B functional safety compliance.
