Comprehensive real-time monitoring and intelligent management of in-car electronics are becoming more important as users seek safer, more fuel saving, and reliable driving experience. To meet these needs, MCUs need to be placed near electronics such as sensors and actuators to provide responsive decision making. Placing MCUs near these devices can reduce latency, minimize loss of data, and cut costs that may otherwise be present with lengthy and complex wire routing.

Automotive electronic devices often operate in areas beyond standard temperatures. MCUs nearby are also required to withstand high temperature stress. Freescale's 8-bit MC9S08SG32 series of high temperature MCUs are designed to qualify for the automotive AECQ100 Grade 0 standard and are capable of high temperature operations, up to 150�C ambient temperature.

This application note discusses design considerations and guidelines for automotive designers when using the AECQ100 Grade 0 MC9S08SG32 in a high temperature environment.
