Semiconductor technology licensing specialist IPextreme Inc. is promoting Infineon Multiprocessor Link Interface (MLI) and MicroSecond Channel (MSC) high-speed serial interface standards by making the specifications openly available.
The MLI is a fast serial interface for interprocessor communications that enables heterogeneous parallel processing through just a few pins. The MSC controls power modules such as electric motors, fuel injectors and ignition coils, while minimizing pin count and system cost.
Both specifications can be downloaded from the IPextreme web site at no cost. Infineon’s implementations of MLI and MSC are also available from IPextreme as silicon-proven IP cores.
