Atmel launches 32-bit FlexRay evaluation environment
Its demonstration centred upon a mock-up car implementing advanced in-vehicle networking with X-by-wire drive, steer and break functions.
The 32-bit microcontroller is at the core of the evaluation environment and is based on Atmel's AVR32.
The environment also includes a dual Can IP, an Ethernet Mac and general purpose peripherals.
Philippe Malecha, automotive microcontroller strategic marketing director at Atmel, said: "With this environment, Atmel can now provide to its customer a complete FlexRay evaluation platform.
"This movement to FlexRay will significantly extend our existing microcontroller offering covering Can and Lin control, providing to our customers a broad range of solutions for their future vehicle designs."
