The new Renesas RH850 architecture delivers high scalability, performance and reliability to automotive systems developers. To get the most from it, developers need to ensure that the growing software content of these applications can also be delivered in time and with the highest level of quality. For this it has become essential for developers to start software development as early as possible and leverage new tools and techniques to increase the developer’s productivity. This webinar will cover how developers of automotive applications based on the Renesas RH850 can leverage the use of Virtual Development Kits (VDKs) to start complex drivers, multicore and AUTOSAR software development today, accelerate system integration and test using a virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop environment and facilitate fault and coverage testing in support of ISO 26262. The webinar will provide developers an introduction to the concepts of virtual prototyping and their application to the Renesas RH850 MCU family through the Renesas Velocity Lab and the Synopsys VDK for Renesas RH850 MCU.

What you will learn:

  • Introduction to Renesas RH850 MCU
  • How to start software development early for the Renesas RH850 MCU
  • Introduction to Virtual Prototyping and VDKs
  • How VDK enable higher productivity for embedded control software design
  • Deploying VDK for Virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop and fault testing
