CoreAVI brings cockpit graphics based on Intel 11th Gen Core processors
Graphics and computing software for safety critical cockpit displays, mission computing and autonomous vehicle systems are provide by CoreAVI, based on the 11th Gen Intel Core processor.
CoreAVI’s software and hardware building blocks are capable of achieving RTCA DO-178C and DO-254 DAL A, ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3 safety certifications, says the company. Intel will provide CoreAVI with access to detailed technical data, including Intel Airworthiness Evidence Package, and Functional Safety Essential Design Package for the processor.
CoreAVI’s support for Intel’s Core CPU includes its COTS-D hardware IP modules, VkCore SC Vulkan-based graphics and compute driver, VkCoreGL SC1/SC2 OpenGL SC, VkCoreVX SC OpenVX SC 1.3 and ComputeCore libraries. These provide a safety critical framework to support integrated GPU compute, vision systems and safe artificial intelligence (AI) deployments, continues CoreAVI. They have been purpose-built to enable customers to reduce the time to market as well as reducing associated costs and risk while increasing return on investment (ROI).
The 11th Gen Intel Core processor incorporates Intel Iris Xe Graphics. The integrated GPU delivers about three times the graphics performance of the previous generation Core processor for edge computing. According to CoreAVI, the Intel Core processor, with up to four CPU cores, four displays up to 8K, and extended temperature ratings, offers scalable power, enhanced security, and the high performance gains for the advanced parallel processing required in today’s safety critical avionics applications.
“We are excited to announce this partnership with Intel to bring to market a true safety critical compute and graphics platform based on Intel’s latest Core processor,” said Dan Joncas, chief sales and marketing officer at CoreAVI. “This partnership ensures that our customers are able to harness the full performance of Intel’s latest generation of graphics and compute processing capabilities coupled with rigorous safety certification that spans multiple markets and applications.”
“Avionics applications continue to demand the highest levels of performance and safety capabilities that are being met more frequently with multi-core processors,“ said Tony Franklin, general manager of federal and aerospace IoT markets at Intel. “With our 11th Gen Core processor, we provide compelling compute performance together with the Intel Airworthiness Evidence Package, which provides safety artefacts to enable and simplify the certification of safety critical avionics systems.”
CoreAVI specialises in architecting and delivering safety critical graphics and compute software drivers and libraries, embedded SoC and discrete graphics processor components, and certifiable platform hardware IP. CoreAVI’s comprehensive software suite enables development and deployment of complete safety critical solutions for automotive, industrial and aerospace applications requiring certification to the highest integrity levels coupled with full lifecycle support. Its portfolio supports both graphics and compute applications including safe autonomy, machine vision and AI in the automotive, unmanned vehicle and industrial IoT markets, as well as commercial and military avionics systems.
