Automotive Semiconductors -
Welcome to 's Automotive Semiconductor
pages. Here we have posted information on how we serve the automotive
industry, together with data on our products, especially semiconductor
devices for vehicle electronics.
More and more complex electronic systems
in vehicles means higher development costs and increasing time-to-market
pressure. These factors have changed the face of the automotive industry.
Component suppliers have become system integrators, supplying the
manufacturers with complete systems, including electronics. Further down
the supply chain, the electronic components supplier is now expected to
align his organisation completely to the needs of automotive electronics
and to cover a wide spectrum of automotive products and applications.

Car electronics - 's LIN family
LIN is the new upcoming low-cost network
for in-car use. With its standardized structure, it complements the CAN
bus by taking over different applications in sub-networks. These
sub-networks are usually conted by CAN-to-LIN gateway controllers. Some
LIN-specific formats require special microcontroller implementations that
are served by ’s standard UART and the new enhanced LIN UART. The
standard UART is made LIN-capable through optimized driver routines that
deal with the LIN-specific frames. The standard UART including LIN driver
is implemented on all existing microcontrollers. ’s new enhanced
LIN UART has built-in hardware support to handle the LIN-specific frames.
All new designs use the enhanced LIN UART as a base.

's TTA Family -
Time-Triggered Architecture (TTA)
The time-triggered architecture (TTA) is a distributed, composable
architecture for the implementation of fault-tolerant real-time systems.
Its main advantage is the common knowledge in each bus node of every other
node's transmission time. TTA will mainly be used in safety-critical
applications. As many upcoming applications such as x-by-wire can only be
realized by using a time-triggered architecture, the automotive industry
shows a huge interest in TTA. For an example as the most named are the
x-by-wire applications like steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire. TTA will
complement the existing automotive networks like CAN, LIN, and MOST. In
the aerospace and railway industry, various TTA applications are in
