General Purpose Automotive Electronic Dashboard (GPADE)E-motion in Safe Motion

GPADE2-1
GPADE is an automotive hardware and software dashboard application. Based on Emerald-P SoC, a product developed by Fujitsu - the leading Japanese information and communication technology company – the system is modular and comprises a processor board, a motherboard, multiple displays and two video cameras.

The GPADE system embeds instrument cluster specific functionalities, improves the comfort of car passengers with multimedia experience, allows customization for the manufacturers to the benefit of end-users and has enhanced 2D and 3D graphics.

Multipurpose Board for Automotive and Industrial Applications Development

Multipurpose Board

Its unlimited displaying possibilities are so advanced that overcome by far the conventional mechanical dashboards.

Flexibility

Due to the digital display GPADE can be easily used in various applications as instrument cluster boards.

Highly customizable

GPADE can be embedded in any instrument cluster board, with only a mechanical redesign, generating a substantial cost reduction for different manufacturing versions.

Full Hardware and Software Solution

The system is delivered in two versions:

  • Processing board + Test motherboard
  • Processing board + Mini motherboard

1. Processing Board

  • Built as a Single Board Computer (SBC) can be the core of any complex image processing system,
  • Based on Fujitsu’s Emerald-P SoC, the PB is a stand-alone product that can be easily integrated in the manufacturer system.
