PARIS – Five months after joining the Automotive Open Systems Architecture (AUTOSAR) consortium as an Associate Member, Scaleo Chip, French designer of ARM-based systems-on-chip, announced it is using ARM Cortex-M3 processor for AUTOSAR-based automotive systems.
Scaleo Chip (Sophia Antipolis, France) specified that it would develop a next generation MCU platform optimized for AUTOSAR applications in in-vehicle networking systems. Working with ARM, Scaleo chip said it aims to enable the porting of the AUTOSAR-OS SC4 to the Cortex-M3 processor.
"By utilizing the Cortex-M3 processor, we will benefit from performance and power advantages in a small form factor, which is essential in automotive designs,” indicated Bruno Paucard, Scaleo Chip's CEO.
He added: "The AUTOSAR standard is gathering momentum with a number of top car manufacturers in support. Working with ARM technology-based SoC solutions enables Scaleo chip to lead the growing number of companies with the common goal of creating open standards in automotive architectures.”
