Neubiberg, GermanyInfineon Technologies AG has launched a family of microcontrollers targeting the growing worldwide market for motorcycle engine control.
The XC2700 family of microcontrollers with 32-bit performance will allow system makers to build cost-effective electronic engine control in motorcycles around the world to meet upcoming emission standards.
The XC2700 family is based on the C166SV2 high performance microcontroller core, providing single cycle execution from a 66-MHz five-stage pipeline at up to 80-MHz. It also integrates key peripherals such as memory, voltage regulator and interfaces to reduce system cost.
The XC2700 product portfolio will include ten products. Infineon is introducing the first XC2700 family members, the XC2766X and XC2786X. The microcontroller integrates an A/D converter with 16- to 24-channels for linking directly to sensors for a low-cost implementation and two CAN interfaces. It also includes a Universal Serial Interface to link to external peripherals via a UART, LIN or I²C interface. Integrating up to 768-Kbytes of 130 nm embedded flash, 64-Kbytes of data flash and 51-Kbytes of system RAM also simplifies the design of the electronic engine management system and keeps costs under control.
With 64- to 176-pins, the XC2700 family provides a scalable package range from lower cost versions to higher performance devices.
Pricing: Sample pricing varies according to product specification. For instance, the XC2766X with 66 MHz frequency, 768 kBytes of flash memory, 16 channels, LQFP-100 package and an automotive temperature range of -40°C to +125°C is priced at approximately Euros 5.50 (about $ 7.45 USD) per piece in quantities of 20,000. For the same quantities and key features in a LQFP-144 package, the XC2786X with 24 channels is priced at approximately Euros 6.80 (about $ 9.15 USD) per device.
Availability: Samples of the XC2766X and XC2786X in the XC2700 family are available for dedicated automotive customers.
More information: XC2766X and XC2786X.
