Fujitsuís Microelectronics and Components Groups Plan Major Exhibit at Convergence 2002

10/23/2002 - Fujitsu's microelectronics and components groups will demonstrate a wide range of new products for the automotive market at the Convergence 2002 show in Detroit. The Fujitsu booth (#135) also will feature HOAP-1, the humanoid robot introduced by Fujitsu in 2001.

Fujitsu Components America, Inc. (FCAI) will introduce a line of automotive-grade, sunlight-readable, resistive touch panels for entertainment, navigation, environmental control and telematics applications. The company will also showcase its new 42V low-power, plug-in relay for high-current switching automotive applications such as blower motors, fan motors, electric power steering systems, electric parking brake systems, and wiper motors. The relay can switch 20A (DC42V) at locked motor load for 100 thousand operations (min.) or switch 10A at locked motor load for 200 thousand operations (min.).

FCAI also will have its FBR53 125oC-grade, ultra-miniature automotive relay for heavy-load motor and lamp applications, and its new surface-mount electromechanical relay, the FTR-P6, which is the smallest, 25A-class automotive relay available.

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will introduce new 16-bit and 32-bit MCUs for automotive applications, along with its new 64-bit, 200 MHz "Coral" automotive 3D graphic display controller. The Coral controller delivers to automakers and OEMs the optimal graphic display capability for map creation, video display and other advanced in-vehicle display applications.

In addition, FMA will demonstrate its MBF 200 biometric sensor system, designed for keyless vehicle entry, automobile personalization and other applications. FMA is also introducing its Embedded Developer's Kit, which combines the MBF200 solid-state fingerprint sensor with Fujitsu's FR family of 32-bit microcontrollers.

Fujitsu's HOAP-1, the year-old humanoid robot designed for use in the research and development of robotic technologies, will also be at Fujitsu's booth (#135). Weighing only 6 kilograms (13 pounds) and standing 48 centimeters (20 inches) tall, HOAP is full of simulation software used for developing motion-control algorithms such as two-legged walking, and for researching human-to-robot communication interfaces.
