Spansion adds to auto micros
Spansion is sampling its Traveo automotive microcontroller S6J3100 series with a CAN FD interface for in-vehicle networking.
The chip,is for various automotive applications including body control module (BCM), heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC).
Bosch invented the CAN standard many years ago and since then worked to improve in-vehicle communication through innovative solutions. Bosch introduced CAN FD as a seamless upgrade of the classic CAN technology the first time at the International CAN Conference in 2012. Like classic CAN, CAN FD enables highly reliable vehicle control, taking advantage of higher data rates with only a small impact on current software and applications. Spansion has started to supply MCU products equipped with CAN FD.
As well as In the CAD FD interface operating at 5Mbps, the S6J3110 series comes with a maximum 4MB of flash memory and uses 55nm technology. It has Secure Hardware Extension (SHE) for network security and improved performance for connected cars, and partial wakeup for lowering power consumption.
The Spansion Traveo family of microcontrollers is based on the ARM Cortex-R5 core and tailored for a broad range of automotive applications.
In May 2014, Spansion introduced the first product of the family, the MB9D560 series for vehicle electrification utilised in hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and electrical vehicles (EV).Tags: applications, Secure Hardware Extension, Spansion
