Fully programmable instrument clusters are becoming common in automobiles across varying price categories. This presents a significant challenge for developers of instrument cluster graphics. Where once an analog instrument cluster displayed mission-critical information like warning signs and PRNDL status, now the same information needs to be represented on a digital display.

This webinar explores the challenges associated with implementing high-resolution digital instrument cluster displays, and the tools needed to to meet the ISO 26262 standard for safe boot, complex embedded algorithm processing, and functional safety diagnostics. We’ll show you how to ensure fail-safe performance of instrument cluster graphics, and present examples of cost-effective solutions that OEMs and Tier-1 manufacturers are using to successfully implement safe instrument clusters for production.

Attendees will learn:

  • Functional Safety 101: The automotive instrument cluster challenge
  • Automotive-proven solution for ISO 26262-compliant automotive displays
  • A breakdown of this solution architecture—from tools to hardware
