freescale semiconductor ltd (FSL) Key Developments

Freescale Introduces Truck Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Freescale Semiconductor expanded its successful tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) portfolio with the addition of the wireless FXTH8715 family, featuring the industry’s small fully integrated package and high pressure accuracy for trucks and other large vehicles. The ultra-compact system integrates a dual-axis accelerometer, motion sensor, RF transmitter, low frequency receiver, pressure and temperature sensor and a microcontroller - all housed in a 7 x 7 mm package. In addition to its superior accuracy, the system’s onboard intelligence enables the collection and transmission of sensor data, including pressure, temperature and acceleration. This enables sophisticated analytics, which can improve fleet maintenance and transform tire pressure systems into value-added end-nodes for the Internet of Tomorrow. The pressure accuracy of FXTH8715 family products is the high in the industry (+/-17kPa versus nearest competitor at +/- 23kPa). The family’s products also feature the high operating range in the industry (100-1,500 kPa versus nearest competitor at 100-1,300 kPa). The FXTH8715 system’s integrated MCU and dedicated firmware support up to 8 KB of flash memory, extending application flexibility, reducing time to market and supporting rolling encryption for a more secure solution. Key features: 100-1,500 kPa range; 8-bit MCU /S08 core with SIM, interrupt and debug/monitor; 512 Bytes RAM /16k Flash (8k for Freescale library, 8k for applications); Z-axis or XZ dual axis accelerometers; QFN 7 x 7 x 2.2 mm package enables visible solder joint for inspection; Dedicated state machines for reduced power consumption; Internal 315/434 MHz RF transmitter; Internal 125 kHz LF receiver; 6 Multi-purpose GPIO pins (including two A/D inputs); and low power wake-up timer and periodic reset driven by LFO.

AHA Products Group Collaborates with Freescale Semiconductor to Deliver New Cryptographic Acceleration Hardware

AHA Products Group announced a new collaboration with Freescale Semiconductor to add cryptographic acceleration to AHA's line of hardware acceleration products. The AHA601 and AHA602 PCI Express® boards leverage the Freescale C29x security coprocessor to deliver between 8K and 32K 2048-bit RSA transactions per second. The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) recommendation to move from RSA-1048 bit to RSA-2048 bit encryption continues to stress CPU resources and the AHA solution works to offload this requirement for the end user. These new boards accelerate RSA (key lengths up to 4K), Diffie-Hellman, and Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) public key algorithms, and integrate up to 12 Gbps of bulk encryption. This will allow AHA to expand its support of data center, financial, WAN Optimization, application acceleration, and other customers including government and defense. As with AHA’s prior compression products, source code for the driver is provided under a dual GPL /BSD license. AHA’s long history of high-performance compression products and Freescale’s expertise in security solutions are a natural pairing for securing and optimizing network traffic. Combination cryptographic and compression boards, the AHA611 and AHA612, will be available later 2015.
