Cypress qualifies PSoC mixed-signal array for automotive apps

Posted: 05 Nov 2004 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that its CY8C24xxx and CY8C27xxx families of Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC) mixed-signal arrays have met the standards of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) for automotive applications operating up to 125C. AEC is composed of automotive manufacturers. Its component technical committee is the standardization body for establishing standards for reliable, high quality electronic components.

George Saul, CEO of Cypress MicroSystems, said, "Today's cars are extremely complex electronic systems on wheels. PSoC's strength is its ability to integrate analog and digital peripheral functions with a microcontroller all on one chip. PSoC mixed signal integration reduces component count and system cost and, most importantly, improves system reliability. Cypress has already achieved a number of PSoC automotive design wins in power train and body electronics, as well as safety, security and infotainment systems. Using PSoC in conjunction with Cypress's USB, WirelessUSB, SRAM and CMOS image sensor products, Cypress will roll out a new generation of sophisticated automotive applications."

In addition, the company says that it will demonstrate several PSoC automotive applications at Electronica 2004 in Munich, Germany from Nov. 9-12 that include electroluminescent backlight instrument panel reference design, digital compass reference design, capacitive sensor reference design, and a LIN 2.0 evaluation board.
