Autosar starter kit targets Texas Instruments radar sensor

June 18, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With the introduction of a new software development tool the Swedish software vendor Arccore supports the growing market for automotive software: Its new starter kit enables developers to write software for Texas Instruments (TI) mmWave AWR1642BOOSt EVM sensor which was launched in May 2017.

Automotive OEMs increasingly mandate the use of the open and industry-leading Autosar standard in their ECUs where it simplifies development through software reuse and improved code quality and reliability. Current Autosar solutions, however, are often complex and require a significant initial investment cost. This limits their adoption and in turn, innovation in automotive platforms. 

Arccore’s starter kit  for TI's AWR1642BOOSt EVM  mmWave radar sensor includes the market proven Arctic Core basic software, Arccore’s own Arctic Studio tool chain as well as a Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL) from TI. New starter kit components are available free of charge with a 60-day evaluation license and are fully integrated in a user-friendly integrated development environment (IDE).  Combined with the AWR1642BOOSt EVM sensor’s features, broad scalability and software tools, the kit provides a new starting point for developers of traditional and emerging Autosar applications. 

Arctic Core contains a set of features required for Automotive ECUs including communication, diagnostic and ISO 26262 compliant safety services, and a real-time operating system. Arctic Studio IDE provides a complete software development environment based on the Eclipse framework.  The MCAL software components enable access to the MCU’s peripherals including communication and control ports for input/output.
