Cypress Enables Secure Networking for Automotive Body Electronics with MCUs

SAN JOSE, CA --- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. is sampling new devices in its single-power-supply Traveo™ automotive microcontroller (MCU) family that provides secure, high-speed networking for body electronics applications. The new S6J342xxx series supports the Controller Area Network Flexible Data-rate (CAN FD) standard for high-speed, in-vehicle networking, enabling large amounts of data to be exchanged between each CAN node. The MCUs address the critical need to secure data on in-vehicle networks with enhanced Secure Hardware Extension (eSHE) support, preventing unauthorized connections to electronic control units (ECUs). The new Traveo series continues Cypress's expansion of its broad automotive portfolio that includes MCUs, wireless radios, memories, capacitive-touch solutions and Power Management ICs (PMICs).

The Traveo S6J342xxx series leverage Cypress's 40nm embedded charge-trap (eCT™) Flash technology for higher performance and reliability. The series delivers rich features and more cost-efficient implementations for body control modules, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, collision warning systems, gateways and lighting applications. The MCUs are based on an ARM® Cortex®-R5 core with robust, 132-MHz performance and feature up to 1MB of high-density embedded flash for application storage. A unique partial wake-up mode allows the MCUs to minimize average power consumption. Cypress offers a broad range of variations in the series that enables OEM customers to easily develop derivative solutions.

Availability

The Traveo S6J342xxx series is sampling now and will be in production in early 2017. The MCUs are available in a 100-pin thermally enhanced quad flat package (TEQFP), 120-pin TEQFP, 144-pin TEQFP and 176-pin TEQFP, as well as in a 100-pin low profile quad flat package (LQFP), 120-pin LQFP and 144-pin LQFP.
