Freescale Semiconductor introduced the Qorivva 32-bit MPC5676R microcontroller. The new multicore automotive MCU features 6 MB of on-chip flash memory, 384 KB of on-chip RAM, three enhanced timing processor units (eTPU), 64-channel 12-bit analog-to-digital converter, CAN and FlexRay communications systems, on-chip hardware for knock detection processing. The 90nm Freescale Qorivva MPC5676R microcontrollers make it easier for automotive designers to improve engine efficiency and reduce exhaust pollution. The MPC5676R MCU is ideal for a variety of powertrain control applications, including diesel, gasoline and natural gas engines and hybrid electric and plug-in electric vehicles. Evaluation kits and samples will be available in January 2012.
Freescale Semiconductor introduced the Qorivva MPC567xK 32-bit microcontrollers. The Qorivva MPC567xK MCU family is ideal for radar- and camera-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), such as blind-spot detection, lane-departure warning systems, side view assistance and adaptive headlights. The dual-core MPC567xK microcontrollers feature a lock-step mode to detect and mitigate common hardware and software faults while meeting automotive software integrity level D standards. Samples of the first member of the MPC567xK family are expected in March. General availability is planned for Q3 2011.
Freescale Semiconductor introduced the Qorivva microcontroller (MCU) families for automotive applications. The new 55nm Qorivva MCU product families range from simple, low-cost, single-core controllers up to the latest triple- and quad-core variants. The 32-bit Freescale microcontrollers are based on Power Architecture technology. The MCU devices are built using a unique 55 nanometer (nm) non-volatile memory (NVM) process for improved power efficiency and cost effectiveness. The Qorivva MCU families will be available in early 2012.
