congatec and Luxoft introduce next-gen automotive platform

congatec and Luxoft have introduced a next-gen automotive platform with SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Modules. Launching as the first official conga-SA5 supported module, the Automotive Reference Platform (ARP) co-developed by Intel and Luxoft makes digital cockpit designs of next-generation vehicles smarter.

congatec is a vendor of standardized and customized embedded computer boards and modules while Luxoft Holding is a global IT service provider.

The new platform enables clustering of previously separately managed functions such as the head unit display, cockpit occupant monitoring, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

By utilizing standards based on the SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Module, engineers will benefit from design efficiency with a low NRE cost for core and scalability.

This is built for both new and established mobility OEMs and their suppliers who develop hardware and software solutions for digital cockpit systems of next-generation vehicles.

The platform utilizes an Intel Atom E39xx processor based SMARC 2.0 module from congatec in combination with an Intel Cyclone V SoC FPGA with integrated ARM cores and MAX 10 FPGAs to provide unsurpassed design flexibility for extra connectivity options and hardware encoded preprocessing tasks.
