The company Renesas Technology has released multiyaderny processor SH7776, to perform the application of information and navigation systems in automotive on-board facilities. According to the manufacturer, the separation of the two subsystems would improve the stability of each of them. Two of the processor core to operate independently of each other, may apply to the shared memory, but it has a mechanism to protect against an entry in the reserved areas of memory.
Computer processor core taken from the chip Renesas SH-4A, their maximum operating frequency is 533 MHz, and productivity - 1920 MIPS. SH7776 chip also contains two independent graphic core, supports 3D-rendering and built based on proprietary formulation and other PowerVR SGX GPU Renesas. It is also reported the existence of separate schemes for the adjustment of image distortion.
In addition to computing and graphics cores in a chip of the controller interface is Serial ATA. It was expected that the processor will be used with hard disk capacity of 80 GB. For shipment of samples SH7776 is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of this year and mass production expected in 2010
