HARMAN will work with Baidu to launch vehicle networking solutions.
The collaboration, called CarLife, will offer advanced Internet capabilities, entertainment features and location-based services on HARMAN’s in-vehicle infotainment head units designed for the Chinese market, resulting in a richer and more immersive connected car experience.
“We are very excited to combine Baidu’s powerful Internet search capabilities and user experience with HARMAN’s embedded connectivity expertise to present drivers in China with safe, easy and intuitive access to the content they want,” said Sachin Lawande, President, HARMAN Infotainment.
NXP Semiconductors has expanded its second-generation UJA107x family of CAN/LIN System Basis Chips (SBCs) for in-vehicle networks, adding four new UJA107xA models that offer enhanced electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance to meet the stringent requirements of automakers such as Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Porsche, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen.
The latest generation of SBCs from NXP includes:
- UJA1078A HS-CAN and dual LIN SBC
- UJA1075A HS-CAN and LIN SBC
- UJA1076A HS-CAN SBC
- UJA1079A LIN SBC
Freescale Semiconductor has announced its next generation of system basis chips (SBCs) to address requirements for in-vehicle network energy management, safety, and electromagnetic compatibility.
The firm said its MC33904/5S/5D SBC devices integrate an energy management module to power microcontrollers (MCUs), transceiver interfaces to connect with in-vehicle networks, and low-power modes to conserve battery life.
The new SBCs are built on Freescale SmartMOS technology and are designed to optimize the performance, power consumption, and cost of electronic control units for a broad range of automotive applications including body control modules, lighting modules, door/seat modules, seatbelt pretensioners, fuel/water pumps, glow plugs and low-end engine management systems. They also are suited for applications including safety and powertrain.
NXP Semiconductors today announced the release of the UJA107x family, its second generation of CAN/LIN System Basis Chips (SBCs) for in-vehicle networks. The UJA107x SBCs are intended to optimize the performance, power consumption and cost of electronic control units (ECUs) for automotive applications, such as body control modules, climate control, seat control, electric power steering (EPS), adaptive lighting, rain/light sensors, parking assistance and transmission.
