Automotive platform for Linux from Mentor supports GUI development
Mentor Graphics has released its Mentor Embedded Automotive Technology Platform (ATP) for Linux based in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system development. The development platform is enhanced with graphics development and optimization functionality for automotive infotainment system designers to design graphic user interfaces (GUI) or HMIs similar to the user interfaces used in latest consumer electronics devices.
The latest ATP release includes graphics framework support for X11 and Wayland, GPU support and an instrumented package for QT 5.0 that includes the visual and interactive analysis of UI smoothness, start-up time, latency and QML activity.
This ATP release has achieved GENIVI 5.0 compliance for the Freescale i.MX6, Texas Instruments OMAP5 and Renesas Marzen H1, and is fully Yocto Project 1.5 compliant. The release also provides a Virtual BSP for host-based development and testing.
