Automotive Cluster Design

Interface Design for semiconductor manufacturer Spansion Inc.

Spansion International Inc. is a worldwide semiconductor manufacturer and provides chip sets for automotive applications. For the control of instrumentation in the car a single chip controls stepper motors, LEDs, displays and a head-up-display. The performance of its systems provides Spansion as a supplier to the automotive industry via demonstrators shown at trade fairs such as the CES in Las Vegas and the Embedded World in Nuremberg.

Design of automotive human-machine interface

For the design of the latest cluster Spansion commissioned Cogneus due to the experience in the automotive sector, the user interface design and the high quality of the graphic templates for different software development platforms. The aim of the design is to develop a design language that conveys the corporate design of Spansion and which is manufacturer-independent.

Corporate Interface Design

Hardware and software should be recognizable as a whole: the shape and color of Spansion signet an asymmetrical arrangement stands as model for the display arrangement. As a distinctive part of the design the “Spansion arch” was introduced over hardware and the continuation on screen. The instrumentation is illuminated by modern LED technology.

Screen design for the instrument cluster and head-up display

In addition to the layout of the instruments, the operation of vehicle functions via dialog-based systems is becoming increasingly important. Cogneus designed concise and typical dialogue forms for navigation, entertainment and vehicle information. In addition, a colored head-up display makes the user-interface complete.
