Robust and Flexible Functional Safety System Basis Chips
DETROIT, Michigan – October 5, 2016 – (NXP FTF Connects Forum-Detroit) – NXP Semiconductors introduces its latest generation of system basis chips (SBCs) with the new FS45 and FS65 products, engineered to support the creation of robust, system-level functional safety systems, while helping reduce overall energy consumption.
The new SBCs target automotive applications such as battery management systems, electric power steering, electric or hybrid electric vehicles and advanced power train systems such as start & stop, or transmission control. Both feature "Fail silent" functionality that helps to ensure predictive reaction after failure, as well as configurable device behavior that can be adapted by software designers to specific system safety goals. A configurable fail silent strategy supports a variety of system safety concepts and levels up to ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D.
