Spansion announced that Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) is combining Spansion Known Good Die flash memory with its Blackfin processor in a multi-chip module (MCM) for products supporting the automotive market. The new solution promises to deliver the storage capacity and performance required to enable reliable, fast boot-up and data storage for feature-rich radio, driver assistance, telematics and navigation systems.

"Combining Spansion flash memory with the power and performance of Analog Devices' Blackfin enables customers to bring added value and innovation to in-cabin automotive electronics systems, while reducing design cost and accelerating time-to-market," said Sylvia Summers, executive vice president of the embedded memory division for Spansion.

"Spansion and Analog Devices understand the unique needs of this market and are delivering a pre-certified, small form factor solution that can be rapidly deployed by automotive electronics OEMs," said Jerry McGuire, general manager, convergent platforms and service group, ADI. "This solution delivers the added storage capacity that automotive OEMs need to enable the on-going innovation that consumers want in their car audio, telematics and navigation systems."

Designed for use as a host or system controller, the new Blackfin ADSP-BF539F combines either 4Mbit or 8Mbit of Spansion flash memory with the Blackfin ADSP-BF539 in a single package. The ADSP-BF539F devices are 500MHz processors and are supported by the INTEGRITY Real-Time Operating System from Green Hills Software. Each can execute a full range of real-time signal processing, vehicle network stacks, diagnostics code, and software download functions with ease.
