Automotive Applications using Spansion NOR, Serial and NAND Flash Memory




 

NOR Flash for Automotive

The auto industry is rich in innovation as the car morphs into the most advanced consumer electronics device. The industry is growing from $21 billion in 2010 to $34 billion in 2012. As many as 80 to 100 microcontrollers drive today's advanced features such as speech recognition, advanced diagnostics, predictive and self-intelligence, and driver assistance systems. These features require memory to function. Spansion’s NOR family of products for automotive are TS-grade, qualified to the AEC-Q100 standard and available in in-cabin, -40° to +105° C, temperature ranges with some powertrain products featuring -40° to +145° C.

 

Voice Recognition

Voice capabilities are becoming a core part of the in-car user interface. Spansion is developing programmable systems solutions that leverage its non-volatile memory technology to deliver the high performance and reliability required by the process and memory intensive functions of speech recognition systems critical for in-car entertainment, connectivity, navigation and safety.

Instrument Clusters

Important driver information is being provided on digital displays alongside the gauges and dials of your speedometer and gas tank, bringing new levels of safety to drivers. These 2D and 3D graphics require fast processing and NOR Flash memory to boot nearly instantly and provide real-time feedback.
