Safe Multi-Display Cockpit Controller
Based on a TÜV certified Hypervisor
OpenSynergy shows a hypervisor based cockpit solution that combines mixed criticality functions (safety and non-safety relevant) within a single System-on-Chip (SoC). The certified hypervisor in OpenSynergy‘s COQOS Hypervisor SDK creates three virtual machines (VM) that run independently of each other different system. TÜV SÜD has confirmed that the hypervisor complies to ISO 26262:2018 ASIL-B.
OpenSynergy has developed a guard mechanism that ensures that the safety relevant telltales on Linux-based digital instrument clusters are correctly displayed. TÜV SÜD has also confirmed that this safety concept satisfies the safety requirements related to correct rendering telltales up to ISO 26262 ASIL-B.
For designs that use a variety of displays, it is important that the information is located where the driver needs and expects it. For this use case, the demonstrator also presents a Shared Display Feature, which provides full flexibility and controls how information is rendered on multiple displays in the vehicle.
In addition, the demonstrator will show OpenSynergy’s Remote GPU that takes virtualization to the next level: it enables several software systems to share the GPU power and displays available on different ECUs in the car, even running SoC’s produced by different vendors.
