The Traveo II Body family was developed by Cypress Semiconductor. Through the acquisition of this company it became part of Infineon's automotive components portfolio. The new microcontrollers are expected to provide the performance, scalability, low power consumption and functional safety required for future body applications, the chip manufacturer promises. The field of application ranges from instrument cluster and infotainment applications to chassis, powertrain, driver assistance and domain control units. "The Traveo II body family is a cornerstone in our 'from product to system' approach. It enables us to offer comprehensive system solutions for body applications," said Peter Schäfer, Senior Vice President and General Manager Automotive Microcontrollers at Infineon.
The Traveo II multi-core family is based on ARM Cortex M7 and M4 cores with up to 8 MB integrated flash. These enable the robust performance required for demanding body electronics applications. The devices meet the functional safety requirements of ASIL-B level according to ISO26262 for safe operation even at ambient temperatures up to 125°C.
