Elektrobit (EB) announced its expansion to two new international locations: Timisoara, Romania and Bangalore, India. The expansion will add up to 80 developers. With these additional resources and skilled developers, EB plans to support current development of its EB tresos line of solutions, and expand its efforts in the next generation of AUTOSAR. With millions of vehicles on the road around the world, EB said its EB tresos product line is leading the industry.
EB currently provides top automotive manufacturers and suppliers with software and services in a variety of areas including driver assistance, navigation, infotainment, connected car and car infrastructure. Its state-of-the-art AUTOSAR-compliant solutions for electronic control units (ECUs) encompass basic software, operating systems, configuration tooling, functional safety solutions, testing and integration services.

The move towards ADAS and automated driving marks a milestone in the history of the automotive industry, which possibly (some say most likely) will revolutionize passenger traffic worldwide. From a technical perspective, we are also seeing significant changes being caused by the arrival of new components and by totally new system and software architectures. As a consequence, new business models and new providers are beginning to emerge particularly in the areas of hardware/software and system integration.
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) announced a strategic cooperation with ARCCORE that it said significantly reduces the cost, risk, and time-to-market for customers developing embedded automotive systems based on AUTOSAR.
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is a worldwide development partnership of vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and other companies from the electronics, semiconductor, and software industries. The AUTOSAR members (ST and ARCCORE among them) work together to develop common standards that facilitate the introduction of innovative automotive electronic systems, and implement them through cross-functional alliances with other members.
Elektrobit (EB) announced that it is working with Infineon Technologies (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) and NVIDIA to make it easier for the automakers and their suppliers to create advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that integrate the highest levels of safety. Together, the companies say they are delivering a first-of-its-kind solution that represents a powerful development platform for automated driving.
Microchip Technology Inc. announced that designers using Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) to develop and reuse their in-vehicle software can now connect their systems to not only networking technologies such as CAN and LIN, but also to the MOST® Cooperation’s MOST networking technology.
This means that Microchip’s MOST Intelligent Network Interface Controllers (INICs) can be used for cross-domain communication in an AUTOSAR system, such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which simplifies automotive networking and diagnostics.

TTTech announces the launch of its Deterministic Ethernet switch, named Hermes, for application development and evaluation of in-vehicle network architectures in the field of automotive and heavy machinery. With this intelligent device, customers can now evaluate multiple technical standards supported by the NXP SJA1105T chip, including AVB, TSN and Time-Triggered Ethernet. The switch also integrates a powerful CPU running AUTOSAR 4.2.1 and provides digital and analog I/Os plus CAN, FlexRay and Ethernet interfaces.
Bosch Subsidiary ETAS Demonstrates Automotive Industry Standard AUTOSAR Solution for Connecting With a MOST Network Using Microchip’s Devices
Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), announced that designers using the Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) to develop and reuse their in-vehicle software can now connect their systems to not only networking technologies such as CAN and LIN, but also to the MOST® Cooperation’s automotive-proven MOST networking technology. This means that Microchip’s MOST Intelligent Network Interface Controllers (INICs) can be used for cross-domain communication in an AUTOSAR system, such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which simplifies automotive networking and diagnostics.
Symtavision has launched SymTA/S 3.7, improving timing design and verification for automotive Ethernet and multicore systems. The company also released TraceAnalyzer 3.7 which is fully integrated with SymTA/S 3.7.
SymTA/S 3.7 introduces new Ethernet timing design and verification features including the modeling and analysis of dynamic data chains and data dependent dynamic Ethernet frame packing as well as faster system distribution analysis compared to previous versions.
SymTA/S 3.7 also incorporates new general modeling and timing analysis features – Gantt-Filter, APIs and improved AUTOSAR 4.x multicore import.
The MOST Cooperation – standardization organization for the automotive multimedia network technology Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) – will present an implementation of MOST within the AUTOSAR framework at the upcoming MOST Forum on April 21, 2015 in Stuttgart/Esslingen (Germany).
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System Architecture, www.autosar.org) has developed a standardized open software architecture for automotive electronic control units and is increasingly being applied in traditional vehicle electronics domains. MOST, on the other hand, is an important standard for automotive infotainment.
Mentor Graphics (NASDAQ: MENT) announced the availability of Automotive Ethernet support in the Volcano™ VSA™ product for network design of both AUTOSAR-based and non-AUTOSAR electronic control units (ECUs).
Increasingly, in areas in which high bandwidth and reliable performance are essential, Ethernet is being used. These include advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), vehicle network backbones, audio video bridging (AVB) systems, and diagnostic communication over Internet Protocol (DoIP).
The Mentor® Volcano VSA tool addresses the network-wide timing analysis challenges where a mixture of CAN, FlexRay, and Ethernet-based network busses co-exist. The AUTOSAR standard supports timing definition for all elements in a mixed-topology network. The Volcano VSA tool addresses the challenge of accounting for the many different timing paths.
