Freescale Semiconductor has launched a range of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCU) called Qorivva, designed specifically for automotive applications. These are supposed to increase performance, safety and energy efficiency for a new generation of smart vehicles.
Features and USP: The Qorivva MCUs are built using a unique 55 nanometer non-volatile memory (NVM) process for improved power efficiency and cost effectiveness. They are built on power architecture cores configured to meet the rigorous demands of the automotive environment. They also address key challenges for the automotive market, including the need for increased performance, new safety requirements and enhanced security features. Besides their leading edge integration and performance capabilities, like configurable peripheral sets such as flexible timers and motor control systems, they provide increased processing speeds that allow more complex control algorithms and features. The Qorivva MCU range also comes with increased on-chip memory content (flash and RAM) to significantly reduce the need for off-chip memory, intelligent peripheral sets to drive complex control systems such as transmission solenoids, complex injectors and electric motors, and embedded sensor interfaces to allow simple connections to next generation automotive sensors.
