STMicroelectronics has expanded its multi-core microcontroller (MCU) family that ensures automotive safety. According to the company, the MCUs combine compliance with the most stringent automotive safety standards, encryption for security, and increased memory size for the storage of vital programmes and data, aimed at demanding applications throughout the car such as engine management, transmission, anti-lock braking, electric power steering, active suspension and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Part of ST's Power Architecture single-chip 32bit automotive-MCU family, the SPC58NE product line combines multiple high-performance dual-issue cores with up to 6MB Flash and 768KB internal RAM memory, eight controller area network (CAN) interfaces, and an optimised peripheral set based on the end application. The multiple cores ensure redundancy in these most-important applications to meet the safety and security demands of vehicle manufacturers and consumers.

These devices are the first to be launched with ST's proprietary in-house 40nm embedded Flash process.

The SPC58NE product line is available in BGA 292and LQFP176 package configurations. KGD versions are also planned in the near future. Compliant with the ISO 26262 ASIL-D and EVITA Medium class, the SPC58NE84 is sampling.
