Freescale Semiconductor introduced the MAC57D5xx, a new family of ARM® Cortex®-based single-chip, triple-core microcontrollers (MCUs) designed for automotive instrument clusters.
Freescale Semiconductor and Broadcom Corporation together launched the Freescale Qorivva MPC5606E, a single-chip microcontroller (MCU) that integrates the Broadcom BroadR-Reach PHY. Its predecessor, the dual-chip MPC5604E, is currently in production. Freescale is sampling the new device now and expects that will be available in production quantities by the end of 2014.
Freescale Semiconductor announced a new series of ARM®Cortex-based Kinetis microcontrollers (MCUs) for automotive body electronics applications.
MC33816 for Direct Fuel Injection Engines Improves Fuel Efficiency, Reduces BOM Cost
Freescale Semiconductor announced the MC33816 programmable solenoid controller, a device the company said can reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency for gasoline and diesel direct fuel injection engines. It can also be used for driving dual clutch transmissions.
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) are critical requirements in harsh industrial and automotive environments due to the close proximity of a wide range of networked electronic systems and devices.
RealVNC said it has formed partnerships with Freescale® Semiconductor and QNX Software Systems Limited. Freescale selected RealVNC as a partner for MirrorLink™ certified in-car connectivity and QNX will work with RealVNC to bring RealVNC’s MirrorLink mobile-to-vehicle connectivity solution to the QNX CAR™ Platform for Infotainment.
Red Bend Software added Fuse™ to its vRapid Mobile® firmware over-the-air (FOTA) product suite.
Scalable solution reduces BOM cost and board space
Freescale introduced what it describes as the industry’s most comprehensive system-level solution for radar-based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) – the Qorivva MPC577xK microcontroller (MCU) and the MRD2001 77 GHz radar transceiver chipset.
Freescale Semiconductor said its S12 MagniV portfolio of mixed-signal microcontrollers (MCUs) is helping Chinese automakers address technology challenges in their fast-growing market.
