Digital Instrument Clusters provide critical information for the driver through performance information as well as telltale symbols, chimes and warnings. It helps the driver to operate the vehicle safely. Clusters have evolved from traditional analog meters to "all-digital" that reconfigures its information layout depending on the volume and context of the information. This drastically reduces the possibility of driver being distracted and thereby promote safe driving.
The software for digital instrument cluster are much more sophisticated than that of Analog gauges. It requires a multicore SoCs (System on Chip) that has two processing units – Vehicle CPU (VCPU) for handling low level vehicle interfaces and Graphics CPU for high end 2D and 3D graphics.
Major features in Digital Instrument Clusters
We have been working with OEMs and Tier1s for their Instrument Cluster production programs. Our Digital Instrument Cluster Technology portfolio covers the entire software stack for Instrument Clusters.
