Infineon Extends its XC2000 Automotive Microcontroller Family: New Low-End Devices Enable Body, Safety and Powertrain Solutions with 32-Bit Performance at 8-Bit Costs

Infineon Extends its XC2000 Automotive Microcontroller Family: New Low-End Devices Enable Body, Safety and Powertrain Solutions with 32-Bit Performance at 8-Bit Costs
Giving the medium-sized and compact car category access to the safety and convenience applications of the premium segment and enabling their compliance with the strictest fuel consumption and pollutant emission requirements, Infineon Technologies AG today announced the cost-optimized extension of its successful XC2000 automotive microcontroller portfolio. Enabling 32-bit equivalent performance at 8-bit costs the new 16-bit devices address low-end and ultra-low-cost automotive applications and support cost reductions of existing body (with XC2200 series), safety (with XC2300 series) and powertrain (with XC2700 series) designs. With this family extension, Infineon in particular assists automotive system suppliers that seek to broaden offerings towards a wider performance range without introducing multiple microcontroller platforms. Infineon’s approach provides scalable automotive solutions with a high degree of hardware and software reuse that achieves significant cost savings.

HONEY Lays the Cornerstone for Highly Complex Driver Assistance Systems in Medium-Sized Vehicles; HONEY Research Project Successfully Concluded

Even today, a medium-sized vehicle contains about 1,000 chips and as many as 80 networked electronic systems. These numbers are set to grow as state-of-the-art safety technology gains traction – for example, driver assistance systems that help to prevent hazards such as rear-end collision in fog. The tight design envelope of a car means that existing systems have to become ever smaller and new ones have to be as compact as possible. This is where the findings of the recently successfully concluded “HONEY” (highly optimized design methods for yield and reliability) research project come in.
