Microprocessor solutions target cost-critical automotive and embedded designs

6 November 2002 DSP, Micros & Memory

Infineon Technologies is offering two new microcontrollers, the XC167CI-16F40F and the XC164CS-8F40F, that are optimised to balance performance and total cost in automotive and industrial drives and control systems. Both of the high-integration microcontrollers feature support for Infineon's embedded Flash program memory and the application-specific peripherals needed for cost-effective motor and transmission controls, high performance electrical motor drives, robotics and industrial networking applications. They are based upon Infineon's C166 architecture, recognised by Gartner Dataquest as one of the industry's most extensively used 16-bit system platforms.

The XC167CI-16F40F's architecture has been optimised for high instruction throughput and minimum response time to external interrupts. Intelligent peripheral systems have been integrated to reduce the need for CPU intervention. The architecture's flexibility supports the requirements of diverse application areas, such as automotive, industrial control and data communications.

Features of both XC167CI-16F40F and the XC164CS-8F40F include the high performance C166 S V2 core, with 25 ns instruction time at 40 MHz, for outstanding overall system performance and compatibility of existing systems software with the existing C166 architecture; high-speed TwinCAN with full CAN 2.0 B, 32 messages and two communication lines for autonomous high-speed communication with gateway functionality; CAPCOM6 module dedicated to PWM generation of AC and DC motor control for simple flexible control of various types of motors; and DSP support with built in advanced MAC unit to provide the signal conditioning and calculation capability required in many complex industrial, automotive and communications applications. An On Chip Debug System (OCDS) is included in both of the new microcontrollers to enable customers to speed time-to-market by accelerating software development and system integration.
