Infineon Technologies introduced ARM Cortex-M7 and -M4 cores based Traveo II Body microcontroller family for delivering the robust performance needed for demanding body electronics applications. With up to 8 MB of embedded flash, the multicore Traveo II family ensures to address a broad variety of automotive applications, including body control modules, door, window, sunroof, seat control units, in-cabin smartphone terminals, and wireless charging units.
The Traveo II Body Family comprises four different series of entry devices and two series of high-end devices, each with a different memory size and pin count. Delivering performance, scalability, low power consumption, and security required in emerging automotive platforms, the Traveo II Body microcontrollers are compliance to ISO26262 ASIL-B Level. This ensures the safe operation of the device, even for ambient temperatures up to 125°C.
The family provides low power consumption down to 5 µA and enhanced security (EVITA-Full) for today’s connected cars. Full Firmware-Over-The-Air support allows remote updates of application and security software without any interruption of service. The microcontrollers are backed by AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) 4.2 Software. Adding to it is the broad ARM-based ecosystem for tools and software (IDE tools and debugger and real-time operating systems) that’s available in the market.
All in all, Traveo II microcontrollers offer scalability and pin-compatibility among all low-end devices as well as among all high-end devices. Advanced peripherals, including support for CAN-FD, Ethernet, and FlexRay communication protocols make it apt for next-generation vehicle electronic systems.
As far as the availability is concerned, the first entry devices are currently available for mass production. The other devices will be rolled out consecutively until the entire product family is available by the second quarter of 2021. Moreover, later in 2021, the Traveo II family will be further complemented with new embedded graphic microcontrollers for the cluster, cockpit, and digital-display applications.
