Infineon Technologies AG has launched its AUDO MAX family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) for automotive powertrain and chassis applications. The AUDO MAX family supports design of engine management systems meeting Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standards for combustion vehicles and enables the electrification of powertrain functions in electrical vehicles.

Key features of the AUDO MAX family are maximum clock frequencies of up to 300MHz, high-speed interfaces like SENT and FlexRay,™ and support for advanced safety engineering by using the PRO-SIL™ features of the devices. Based on the TriCore™ processor architecture and manufactured in 90-nm process technology, the new MCUs are suited for use at temperatures of up to 170°C.
