In this technical webcast, Dr. Stephane Turlier, Director of Automotive Integration Competence Centre at OpenSynergy and Ahmed Abdelfattah, COQOS Micro SDK Product Owner at OpenSynergy, explain the hypervisor platform for microcontrollers: COQOS Micro SDK is one of the first hypervisor platforms to take advantage of the Arm Cortex-R52’s special hardware features. It enables the integration of multiple real-time operating systems onto microcontrollers (MCU) requiring high levels of safety (up to ISO26262 ASIL-D).

The NXP S32S processors use an array of this new Arm® Cortex®-R52 safe MCU cores. It offers four fully independent ASIL D processing paths to support safe parallel computing at a very low latency.

Typical application domains for COQOS Micro SDK are powertrain, chassis, body, gateway and ADAS control units, which implies that the separation kernel must achieve a high safety level of ASIL-D.

The free, hour-long tutorial shows step by step how to configure the hypervisor, and how to run it on a real-time microcontroller. Participants will learn how to create multiple virtual cores on a single processor and how to enhance the capabilities of microcontrollers for vehicle applications.
