Cypress Semiconductor said that Continental has selected Cypress’ automotive microcontrollers (MCUs) for its next-generation body electronics platform.
Cypress designed the Traveo II family especially to deliver the performance, scalability, low power consumption and security required for emerging automotive platforms.
The solution from Cypress will support Continental in providing a broad range of options for a variety of products, including central body control modules, door, window and sunroof control units, seat control units, smartphone terminals and wireless power charging units.
Michael Crane, Vice President, Body & Security, North America, Continental, said, “The strong performance and scalability of the Traveo II family made it stand out as the right choice for our next-generation body electronics platform. “
Hassane El-Khoury, President and CEO at Cypress, said, “This platform order marks a significant step forward for Cypress’ automotive portfolio and our new Traveo II family.”
The multicore Traveo II family, which will begin sampling the second half of this year, is based on ARM Cortex-M7 and -M4 cores with up to 8MB of embedded flash that helps the devices deliver the robust performance required for demanding body electronics applications.
