John Day New software aids the development of robust, secure systems; supports multiple OS consolidation and ARM® TrustZone® secure system architecture If you’ve watched television or read a magazine within the past several months it’s likely that you’ve seen ads for new cars touting the benefits of electronic systems such as lane departure warning or adaptive cruise control. Cars these days are loaded with … Read More

John Day ABI Research recently predicted that the global market for Front Collision Warning Systems (FCWS) and Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS) will increase from 6.6 million units at the end of 2012 to 140.1 million units by the end of 2020. ABI also predicted that revenues from the processors in OEM-installed connected car telematics systems will increase from around $360 million at the end of 2012 to … Read More

John Day I’m often if not always skeptical when a company says its product or service is an industry “first,” so I wanted some verification when Freescale Semiconductor said that its MP5643L microcontroller is the first such device to be certified by an independent accredited assessor (www.exida.com) as compliant with the relevant MCU requirements of the automotive functional safety standard ISO 26262. But … Read More

John Day Features that not long ago were limited to luxury vehicles are working their way toward the mainstream. Increasingly powerful microcontrollers (MCUs), often integrating functions that were formerly discrete, are helping to make that happen. Take Freescale Semiconductor’s 32-bit Qorivva line, for example. Earlier this month Freescale launched the MPC5604E, targeting surround-camera parking assist systems, … Read More

John Day You probably know that Renesas Technology and NEC Electronics are merging, reportedly to become the third-largest semiconductor company. It’s not clear how the respective product lines will come together, but Renesas and NEC both have a strong presence in the auto industry, so the deal is significant and it follows a dismal year. Business prospects today are definitely better than they were a year … Read More
