Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announces that Bosch has selected its automotive-grade Serial NOR Flash memories for its next-generation video-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The NOR Flash memory is used to store system boot code and algorithms at temperatures up to +125°C with utmost reliability.
ADAS platforms are the foundation of autonomous driving. The vision-based systems are essential for providing critical driving functions such as pedestrian detection, lane keeping, traffic sign recognition, collision avoidance and blind spot monitoring. Bosch's camera-based ADAS platform allows vehicle manufacturers to integrate a wide range of drive assistance functions into their vehicles by using a single system.
Cypress' 128Mb to 1Gb FS-S 1.8V family and FL-S 3.0V family of Quad SPI NOR Flash memories deliver read bandwidth of 80 MBps and enables the fastest program execution for high-performance systems. Available in industry-standard, compact 8-lead SOIC, 16-lead SOIC, 8-WSON and 24-ball BGA packages, the devices save board space and simplify layout. The FS-S and FL-S NOR Flash families offer AEC-Q100 automotive-qualified options and support an extended temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
