Continental Selects Cypress Automotive MCUs to Drive Next-Generation Body Electronics Platform
"Global vehicle manufacturers rely on Continental for automotive systems that enable cutting-edge features to address the market's latest trends, such as firmware over-the-air updates, and with increasingly higher standards for reliable performance," said
"In my years working with Continental, I developed a deep appreciation for the precision, innovation and quality the world's automakers demand to differentiate their vehicles," said
The multicore Traveo II family is based on ARM® Cortex®-M7 and -M4 cores with up to 8MB of embedded flash that helps the devices deliver the robust performance required for demanding body electronics applications. Featuring advanced peripherals, including support for the CAN-FD, Ethernet and FlexRay communication protocols, Traveo II MCUs offer scalability and pin-compatibility from the low-end to the high-end. The family provides low power consumption with a deep sleep mode and enhanced security for today's connected cars. The MCUs are backed by AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) 4.2 software. More information on the Traveo MCU family is available at http://www.cypress.com/traveo.
The Traveo II MCU family will begin sampling in the second half of 2017.
