Real-Time Virtualization Support for Functional Safety

The Arm Cortex-R processor series delivers high performance and deterministic execution for time-critical systems. Designed for implementation on advanced processes, Cortex-R processors achieve high execution speed within an efficient silicon footprint. Cortex-R52+ builds on its predecessor, the Arm Cortex-R52, to assist integration and virtualization for functional safety applications, while maintaining software compatibility.

Features and Benefits

Efficient Integration

Enables efficient software integration with consistent system-wide processor state visibility and performance-enhanced control for real-time virtualization applications, which helps improve efficiency and increase performance.

Application Consolidation

Provides hardware-enforced software separation on the Armv8-R architecture for the flexibility to update applications and integrate multiple operating systems, while maintaining their freedom from interference for safety-related tasks.

Deterministic Computation

Multicore clusters of Cortex-R52+ processors can be integrated efficiently into system-on-chips (SoCs) and microcontroller systems (MCUs) to deliver high-performance real-time responsiveness.

Use Cases

Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

Functional safety has continued to grow in importance in a number of critical automotive applications and now extends into many more of the vehicle’s systems than ever before. Domain controllers, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and autonomous driving increase the complexity of systems where functional safety is critical. Cortex-R52+ supports the highest level of automotive safety required to enable the control computation and safety islands within these systems.
