General Motors (GM) and Freescale Semiconductor Inc. have reached an agreement in which GM will use Freescale's 32bit MPC5500 family of microcontrollers (MCUs) in future GM powertrain engine control systems. GM and Freescale intend to work closely to tailor the microcontrollers used in GM engine control systems.

"This agreement represents a new level of cooperation between an auto manufacturer and a semiconductor company working together to ensure optimum control solutions for new vehicles," said Dennis Bogden, director of powertrain electronics engineering at GM.

"Freescale microcontrollers act as the brains behind automotive electronic systems from remote keyless entry and infotainment to antilock braking and powertrain control," said Alex Pepe, VP and general manager of Freescale's 32bit embedded controller division.
