Freescale ramps FlexRay device

Freescale Semiconductor said its MFR4200 FlexRay controller is available in production quantities. The chip targets chassis control, body electronics and powertrain applications including X-by-wire subsystems for braking, steering, suspension/reaction control and throttle control.

“We believe FlexRay is destined to be the de facto global standard for innovative high-speed control applications in the car,” said Juergen Weyer, vice president and general manager of Freescale’s Transportation & Standard Products Group in Europe, Middle East and Africa. “The list of manufacturers embracing the protocol--including Audi, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Ford, GM, Toyota and Volkswagen--underscores the momentum FlexRay has already achieved.”
