MCUs Cut Fuel Consumption And Harmful Emissions

Designed for use in engine-management systems, the AUDO-NG family of 32-bit microcontrollers is based on the company’s TriCore unified processor architecture that combines a microcontroller, microprocessor, and a DSP in a single core. Comprised of three devices, the TC1766 and the TC1796 employ the TriCore 1.3 architecture and the TC2700 uses the TriCore 2 architecture. The TC1766 provides clock speeds up to 80 MHz, 1.5 MB of flash, and a peripheral set tailored to standard power-train applications. Operating at speeds up to 150 MHz, the TC1796 includes 2 MB of flash and an expanded peripheral set for complex engine management systems. The TC2700 supports clock speeds up to 400 MHz and is designed for use in parallel with a TC1796 or TC1766. This device exchanges information with the TC1766 or TC1796 in real-time via the multiprocessor interface. For more details, contact INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES CORP., San Jose, CA. (408) 501-6000.
