Freescale offers on-chip security features for prevention of automotive electronics tampering

The security of automotive electronics systems is an escalating topic of concern for automotive OEMs, owners and the insurance industry. Electronic control of automotive systems is steadily increasing, with large amounts of data streaming through body control modules (BCM)/gateways. Freescale Semiconductor is helping significantly reduce the security risks for that data with new additions to its MPC56xx family of Qorivva 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) built on Power Architecture technology.

SMA560 MEMS acceleration sensor for airbag control units Bosch acceleration sensors – more functions in even less space More than 40 percent space saving

The dual-axis SMA560 model for airbag control units marks Bosch’s entry into the fifth generation of micro-mechanical acceleration sensors. As opposed to sensors of the previous generation, this new model, in its SOIC8 housing, combines space savings of more than 40 percent with an unprecedented variety of functions. This means that circuit designers can assign one of four measuring ranges to each sensing axis independently. Via the serial peripheral interface, the sensor outputs the measuring values in either Bosch-SPI or Open-SPI format. The SMA560 can currently be ordered as a sample. The SMA550 sensor is available with the same parameters but with only one sensing axis – both are RoHs-compliant.
