As pointed out by some of the earlier comments, Spansion is not the first to the market with an R5 core. While Spansion may provide misleading comments about their products, EETimes needs to confirm their veracity before publishing; you cannot just publish something verbatim! Though, this is not the first time this correspondent has been doing this. Sorry to say, these are poor journalistic standards.

Scaleo chip have introduced OLEA, its Automotive MCU for ICE/HEV/EV control embedding Cortex-R5F already 2 years ago.

With its new MCU family, Spansion shows that future is belonging to standard embedded cores in the Automotive industry, not anymore to proprietary ones.

If you don't think security is important check out this presentation on how easy it is to hack into cars..

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
