In the automotive industry and the vehicle cockpit multifunction touchscreen displays have replaced the gauges and indicators of the past. High performance SoCs are being used to not only convey basic information to drivers but to achieve augmented vision and improved situational awareness in a human-machine-interface, which allows the driver to visually interpret large amounts of disparate information.
In avionis, GPUs and related software drivers used in these high reliability and safety critical automotive systems will adopt more safety qualified electronics over time. These new systems will be fit for purpose, because they will be designed to meet functional safety standards, enable deterministic computing and software will be written in conformance with the MISRA-C guideline for safety critical software in accordance with safety standards such as ISO 26262.
Workflows: a current trend in automotive is to consolidate multiple cockpit functions into a cockpit domain controller (CDC) where multiple traditional vehicle ECUs can consolidate as software workloads on a single ECU. Often times, workloads that have deterministic compute deadlines may not share resources with other workloads, and this is important for the deterministic safety HMI workloads. The Arm Mali-G78AE Flexible Partitioning feature is an innovative feature that allows boot time HW separation of the GPU into 1, 2, or 4 appropriately sized GPUs. These GPUs can be allocated to the different workloads.
Safe HMI architectures: there are many cases os use for ISO 26262 ASIL B and ASIL ASIL B . The integration of safety content with non-safety content on an instrument cluster is commonplace. In current systems rendering may be performed by ASIL Quality Managed QM hardware and software. The safety mechanism in place is an ASIL B. The most common method is using dedicated hardware in the display controller that generates a CRC. This CRC is compared with a refence CRC value supplied by the application. If they match, you know the QM graphics system is working correctly and the safety related content is displayed correctly. However, this approach does not scale well if this criterion is not met. To support a scalable approach for the future, designs will transition to system architectures that support safety applications running on safety qualified applications cores.
Safe HMI application development: safety applications in avionics take advantage of GPU acceleration enabled by the OpenGL® Safety Critical API. In the future, the VkCore Functional Safety Suite for Mali-G78AE will support OpenGL SC 1.0.1, 2.0 and the Vulkan SC 1.0 API that is under development by the Khronos organization. HMI designers will take advantage of HMI tools that support a workflow allowing for tagging of certain data and/or surfaces for safety and non-safety rendering domains. The ecosystem of HMI tool partners will support workflows for an easy transition from ASIL QM HMIs to Safe HMIs that are composited safely with non-safety HMIs.
Strong Partnerships: as automotive systems become more autonomous and as artificial intelligence and machine learning becomes more pervasive, technology partnerships in the automotive world will become more commonplace.

RadarView is Cambridge Pixel's PC-based radar visualisation software. It is a ready-to-run Windows application that receives, processes and scan converts multiple channels of radar video into PPI, A-Scan and B-Scan formats. It is designed for applications that require a cost-effective and easy-to-use display capability for primary and secondary radars; RadarView runs on any standard Windows PC.
RadarView can interface to network video formats or, when used with the HPx family of radar input cards, it can interface to radar video from a wide range of radar types. Presenting a familiar Windows graphical user interface, the software supports the display of map data, overlay symbology and multiple windows of scan-converted video. Up to four PPI windows are available, in addition to the main application PPI window. Each PPI window provides an independent view of the radar video(s), offering massive flexibility in the presentation of the data and allowing the display to be spread over multiple screens.
RadarView also provides a built-in radar record and replay capability. Connect to the radar source and simultaneously visualise and record the radar video. This capability is invaluable when configuring a new installation or testing a radar. Capture video onto the local hard disk of the computer and analyse the data off-line is also possible using the RadarView display capabilities. Recorded video may be moved between computers using any convenient media.
RadarView also accepts up to two camera video inputs, via DirectShow device or network RTSP source. Additionally, if the camera uses Pelco-D pan-tilt-zoom commands, RadarView can be used to steer the camera.

Curtiss Wright has recently proven the feasibility of an open standard architecture (OSA) based on the intelligence, surveillance and recognition (ISR) as an Electronic War system solution in the three services open architecture interoperability demonstration (TSOA-ID). This demonstration standed out because of the OSA benefits when integrating products from four single companies, thereby showing Commercial off-the-shelf functions (COTS) based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions for signal intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic war situational awareness applications (EW).
This solution, suitable for the RF situational awareness understanding, automatically classifies signals using machine learning. This system also proved the NST Type 1 data encryption for the ISR data certification with a writing/reading performance rate up to 10/17 Gbps for each data channel.

CoreAVI understands the challenges integrators face when designing a new system application. The application needs hardware, graphics controllers, firmware and an operating system, all with DO-254 / DO-178C security certification. In addition to these needs, the integration must be perfect, which is complicated when each component comes from a different site.
To facilitate this integration, and for the customers to be able to securely obtain all the necessary components, CoreAvi has created a platform for security-critical applications. The basis of this platform is what they have called COTS-D.
COTS-D is a new and simple way for suppliers of critical security systems to purchase Commercial-Off-The-Shelf hardware solutions that are certifiable in accordance with the requirements of DO-254 along with associated software components that are DO-178C certifiable. With this, it is possible to buy what each supplier needs ad-hoc and make turnkey constructions, all this without neglecting the extra security contribution in which CoreAvi has been working for many years.

If you want to deepen into any of the options offered by DDC in order to manufacture customized power supplies, do not miss the following information.
Security in military systems helps combatants to carry out their missions reliably. That is why all the hardwares and softwares that are used must be designed to its safe use.
Once they are started, special attention is required to ensure the operation goes as planned. This is usually complicated, since very few developers have access to the application code, not to mention that, as usual, these applications are custom designed to execute a specific mission, so the review which is usually done is always at a general level.
This lack of in-depth review of the particularities of each software can result in undiscovered vulnerability. In addition, it must be borne in mind that application codes of military systems are usually tested at the beginning and, once implemented, they are no longer subject to further tests. All this makes discovering security flaws over time very complicated.
If we continue with security problems, we must add that, normally, there are budget and time constraints, leaving the software updates aside, especially if it is already being used in missions. Moreover, even if security failures are discovered, the costs of correcting that failure are usually excessive, so they are not fixed.
To avoid all of this once the softwares are implemented, it is important to use all kinds of techniques to detect failures before the implementation is carried out. In addition to delivering safer products, you save time and money in the long run. For this reason, it is imperative that system developers make the right decisions about the application code from the beginning.
