Renesas Electronics, a premier supplier of semiconductor solutions has introduced new software packages for the R-Car automotive computing platform to improve security and safety functionalities for the next-generation of connected cars. These packages implement embedded systems to avail security features that protect the car from external threats and also ensure continued safe operation even in case of failures.
The new package aims to counter various security and safety concerns like protecting the car from malicious attacks over the network, integration challenges for OEMs, requirement for a system that safely handles the car even during failures, etc. The packages offered by Renesas that can handle all such issues include the following:
Virtualization Package: It enables a simultaneous integration of multiple operating systems and operation of different applications on a single R-Car system for enhanced system integration.
Security Package: It allows the implementation of secure booting and secure updates to meet the changing security demands.
Functionality Package: It facilitates the control of the safety mechanisms (hardware IPs) included in the R-Car system-on- chip (SoC).

Embedded Virtualisation technology allowing integration of multiple systems while achieving both functional safety and security features.
A variety of software that implements strong security functions to realise a secure environment so as to safely run programs.
Multiple hardware IPs to support safety concept including the runtime self-test system that reduces interruptions and detects faults.
