Freescale Semiconductor stakes its claim as the first company to offer both integrated and standalone FlexRay controllers. The MC9S12XFR and MFR4300 are based on the latest FlexRay version 2.1 protocol. The MC9S12XFR is Freescale’s first microcontroller to integrate a FlexRay module with the 16bit S12X core. The FlexRay protocol provides higher data rates and fault tolerance required for advanced control systems that combine multiple sensors, actuators, and electronic control units. Core member companies of the FlexRay Consortium include BMW, Bosch, DaimlerChrysler, Freescale, General Motors, Philips, and Volkswagen. Other leading Japan-based manufacturers, such as Honda, Nissan, and Toyota, joined the consortium as premium associate members, adding momentum to the growing acceptance of FlexRay.
