Infineon Technologies AG has expanded its microcontroller portfolio with the addition of a 16-bit MCU and two 32-bit telematics gateway/audio MCUs, which are suited for use in automotive and industrial applications.

The TC19xx 32-bit MCUs are based on the company's 32-bit TriCore Unified Processor architecture that combines RISC, CISC, and DSP functionality into a single core. An integrated high-performance audio codec enables embedded speech processing functions such as acoustic echo cancellation and noise reduction without the need of additional external components.

The devices support digital audio processing and are targeted for use in modular and integrated infotainment subsystems like hands-free car kit with voice control, communication gateway, remote diagnostics, and other applications that utilizes voice-control.

Both the TC1910 and TC1912 are software-compatible to the company's TC1920 telematics controllers and are available in P-LBGA-208 packages. The TC1912 offers an additional integrated TwinCAN controller and a third asynchronous/synchronous serial interface.

DC motor microcontroller

Packaged in a P-TQFP-64 casing, the C164SV MCU uses the C166 architecture for high real-time performance and is designed specifically for use in multi-phase brushless dc motor controls and smart-drive applications, such as used in white goods, pumps, and fans.

The 16-bit MCU includes a PWM unit that generates tailored signals for power bridges such as death time generation and several protection mechanisms. The C164SV is pin-compatible to the C164CM and is flexible enough to add features like CAN-bus without extensive redesign.

In quantities less than 100,000, the C164SV is priced at about $3.74, the TC1910 at about $16, and the TC1912 at about $17.11.
