R-Car is a family of embedded high-end ARM/SuperH system-on-chips for the automotive industry.

Overview[edit]

Introduced in 2011, R-Car is a family of high-end ARM/SuperH SoCs for the automotive industry for various applications such as infotainment systems, human-machine interfacing, and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

R-Car is organized into three classes:

  • R-Car E - Entry-level/Emerging economics
  • R-Car M - Mid-range SoC
  • R-Car H - High-end/Premium class SoCs

Members[edit]
