Cypress Semiconductor Corp. recently expanded of its automotive portfolio with the first series of its Traveo microcontroller family. The series features up to 4 MB of high-density embedded flash, stepper motor control, TFT display control, advanced sound output capabilities, and support for all in-vehicle networking standards.
Otimized for high-end body and gateway systems, the new series provides the ability to embed more on-chip flash memory for advanced applications. In addition, the 40-nm Traveo microcontrollers make it easy to implement Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) updates.
The new 40-nm Traveo S6J331X/S6J332X/S6J333X/S6J334X series offers a high-performance platform for classic instrument clusters. Based on the ARM Cortex-R5 processor with 240-MHz performance, it supports the CAN-FD automotive communication protocol for increased data bandwidth for faster networking.
Additionally, Cypress introduced a transceiver for the Clock Extension Peripheral Interface (CXPI) designed to replace the Local Interconnect Network (LIN) automotive communication protocol.
The Traveo S6J331X/S6J332X/S6J333X/S6J334X and S6J335X series is currently sampling and will be in production in the second half of 2016. It is available in 144-pin, 176-pin and 208-pin TEQFP packages.
The S6BT11X CXPI transceiver series is sampling now. It is available in an 8-pin SOP package.
