Cost efficient design by enabling GUI using Embien’s Sparklet which can run in less RAM memory with multiple graphic widgets. Complete design transferred to the customer with extensive remote technical KT sessions. Compact hardware design limiting the dimension to the size of the display.

Secure Connected Solutions

Secure bootloader on RH850
Platform : Renesas RH850-(C1MA1, F1KM_S4, F1K, F1KM-S1)
Description : Designed and developed Secure Bootloader solution for range of RH850 MCUs. Leveraged the underlying hardware capabilities to achieve AES encryption, True Random number generation, CRC validation etc and implemented the Asymmetric cryptographic algorithms using software libraries. Allows secure update via UART-Xmodem and CAN - UDS protocols. The secure core available in variants are used to run the secure algorithms before handing over control to the application core.

BSP/BSW Development for RH850
Platform : Renesas RH850-(C1MA1, F1KM_S4, D1M1A, D1M1V2)
Description : Embien has developed Base Software or the Hardware Abstraction layers for numerous RH850 series MCUs. With these ports, customers were able to smoothly transition their application and middleware to these new platforms. The APIs continuity is ensured so that there is no to very little changes needed even when migrating from MCUs from a different silicon vendor. The implementations were unit-tested with standard frameworks and made available for both CS+ and GHS environments.

Telematics Control Unit
Platform : Renesas RH850/U2A
Description : An Automotive grade design based on RH850-U2A MCU mainly targeted for vehicle control unit and communication gateway applications. Design includes up to 4 CAN interface, 2 Automotive Ethernet with Broad-R Reach support, 2 LIN interface and multiple Analog Sensor inputs. Stacked PCB approach for compact design with separate communication card for multiple wireless connectivity such as LTE, WIFI and BT/BLE. On-board 6-axis inertial sensor (3D accelerometer and 3D gyro) with extensive set of networking interface generates data useful for ADAS and autonomous driving functions. Design is complaint to AEC-Q100 qualification and AIS-004 ARAI standard.

Instrument Clusters

CV Instrument Cluster
Platform : Renesas RL78/D1A Controller
Description : A traditional Analog instrument cluster powered by RL78 “R5F10DMGCLFB” MCU ideally suitable for low end instrument clusters for commercial vehicles. The design drives three stepper motors for fuel, RPM, and temperature gauge and supports Segment LCD for trip meter. Software design involves fine tuning of the stepper motor by enabling zero-point detection and software based PID to effectively control the needles without using the position sensors. A very low-cost design, achieved via single layer PCB in addition to adhering the ARAI standard AIS-004.

2W Instrument Cluster
