Connecting car, driver and
the external world
Secure, reliable data connections
Mentor’s automotive-grade, open-source platforms securely and reliably manage the huge volumes of data flowing through in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, deliver over-the-air (OTA) updates, integrate V2X, and consolidate ECUs.
Cockpit Domain Consolidation
Combination of IVI & Cluster on high compute ECU systems More than 15 years of Automotive development experience – to support the Customer Success Story. With the ever growing increased complexity of modern ECU systems it’s hard to stay on top of the key competence areas. Mentor’s CDC solutions provides exactly the starting point for the development.
We combine IVI & Cluster on high compute ECU systems as a next step toward CENTRAL COMPUTE PLATTFORM.
Full-featured, safety-certified instrument clusters
Here’s the challenge — how to display both consumer app/entertainment and safety-critical driver information on full-featured, graphically intensive instrument clusters? And how to do this in a way that complies with safety standards including ISO 26262 without pushing up hardware or safety certification costs?
We can help. By partnering with key OEMs and suppliers, our solutions implement effective instrument displays and become key differentiators among vehicle makes, models and brands.
Learn how Mentor Automotive’s Instrument Clusters tools can drive innovative design.
Advanced, high-performance audio and video for your automotive systems
We can help you deliver the high-quality audio, multiscreen video, and seamless phone-to-car connectivity that customers demand.
Mentor’s Connected OS™ infotainment platform gives you a choice of hardware SoC platforms and Linux based on the GENIVI or AGL standards. We deliver a complete AUTOSAR implementation for any type of ECU design.
Easily deliver fast boot-up time, with full support for multi-core architectures. Capture, measure, and understand key performance indicators, with fault modeling for non-destructive hardware testing.
Active noise control, A2B design, technical services and more
Our portfolio includes a combination of IP, tools and services to address several of the most important audio-related challenges in automotive design today, including Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Vehicle Sound Enhancement (VSE). Whether your goal is to improve acoustics, minimize cabin noise, selectively generate internal/external noise, or leverage the emerging Automotive Audio Bus®(A2B) technology for next generation audio systems, we can help.
Learn more more about how Mentor’s embedded audio solutions provide carmakers with noise canceling systems that employ microphones, speakers, and advanced audio processing to sense and diminish unwanted noise in the vehicle cabin.
Remote software life-cycle management tailored for automotive
This webinar will discuss approaches to implement and manage OTA, and in particular review the Arynga CarSync™ solution which has been integrated into the Mentor Graphics Automotive Technology Platform...
We’ll provide you with secure boot-loader technology for all ECUs, from simple body and chassis control functions to high-end gateways, infotainment and telematics units. And take advantage of our extensive partner network, as well, including with specialist providers such as Excelfore, one of the best around in managing the distribution and configuration of software in the vehicle.
The benefit to you: More efficient remote software life-cycle management that’s specifically tailored for automotive updates, and significant cost savings.
Internet access for navigation, entertainment and more
Consumers expect vehicles to ship with LTE 4G- or 5G-capable connectivity technology. Mentor Automotive helps you use new, robust networks to deliver new functionality, security patches, user-interface enhancements and whatever other new functionality we might not anticipate today, via remote software updates.
One thing is certain: Given an average vehicle life-expectancy of greater than ten years, the days of “ship it and forget it” on-board software are long gone.
