Tuxera works together with Microsoft, SD Association (News - Alert), and chipset companies to make sure that device manufacturers can install exFAT on any platform and adopt dependable and high-performance SDXC memory card support. Tuxera was the first independent software vendor that had legal access to exFAT and TexFAT specifications, source code and verification tools from Microsoft (News - Alert).
Recently, the company announced that e.solutions GmbH, a joint venture of Audi and Elektrobit, has selected Tuxera exFAT to power its high-end car infotainment software suite on the QNX/ARM (News - Alert) platform.
e.solutions looks to offer an infotainment software suite to enhance the reuse of software for in-vehicle infotainment and to drive innovations. The company is coming up with technology for a new multimedia platform that offers a longer menu of infotainment options and decreases driver distraction. The all-new Audi A3 is the first car with e.solutions' software suite included.
Offering dependable support for SD/SDXC memory cards and USB storages for any in-vehicle infotainment system, Tuxera offers exFAT, NTFS and FAT solutions.
