ALTIUM has joined a global development partnership aiming to create an open, standardised software architecture for the automotive industry.
The AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture) partnership is a worldwide development organisation of car manufacturers, suppliers and other companies from the electronics, semiconductor and software industries.
Altium will share its experience and knowledge of software development standards, processes and methodologies with the AUTOSAR community, by leveraging its expertise in embedded software development gained from its TASKING products.
According to Franz Maidl, managing director of the global TASKING business at Altium, the TASKING suite of embedded tools play an important role in the automotive ecosystem, alongside the Altium Designer integrated design environment.
The TASKING embedded tools are used in different levels of the supply chain, starting within the OEMs and spreading into the wide market of automotive suppliers.
“Our alignment with AUTOSAR will enable us to continually evolve our product offering in line with open industry standards,” Maidl said.
