Infineon Technologies has released the Traveo II Body microcontroller family to the open market.
This product family addresses a broad variety of automotive applications, including body control modules, door, window, sunroof and seat control units as well as in-cabin smart phone terminals and wireless charging units. The market launch follows Infineon’s acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, which developed the product family.
“Integrating both companies’ results in the most comprehensive automotive microcontroller portfolio in the industry,” said Peter Schaefer, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Automotive Microcontrollers at Infineon. “The addition of Cypress’Traveo and Automotive PSoC families to our AURIX safety controllers allows us to offer optimized solutions for the entire range of car applications, from body, cluster and infotainment to chassis, power train, driver assistance and domain control.”
For body applications, Infineon already offers a variety of sensor and power products ranging from motor control solutions and intelligent power distribution to LED solutions. The Traveo II Body products complement this portfolio with a micro controller family that delivers the performance, scalability, low power consumption and security required in emerging automotive platforms. “The Traveo II Body family is a cornerstone in our product-to-system approach, allowing us to offer comprehensive system solutions for body applications,” said Peter Schaefer.
The multi-core Traveo II Body microcontroller 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.
